2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab XLT Premium Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this because I was, frankly,
scared of the size of a F150 extended
cab! I like that I have a truck that
isn't too big, and isn't too small. It
is a good and comfortable vehicle for
driving long distances in.

I know the bed is small and the towing
capacity is less than it's big
brothers, but still 5300 pounds is
still pretty good.

For me I am beyond pleased!


Best Features

I absolutely love that I can have my sunroof open, all my windows and the back window open driving on the highway and not experience any drag. I also like that it is not carpeted! That is such a major plus when you have children!


Worst Features

I always end up turning on the heated seats by accident. I wish there was a guage on the dash board to see when it was on rather than when I start baking!

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab XLT Premium 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love the car/truck it will fit 1
motorcycle with the tailgate down and
has a great ride loader or unloaded.
Needs more power and better economy so
it needs to shead some pounds to get
that done it is a heavy truck for it's
size. Overall I am very pleased with
the Sport.


Best Features

4 doors, pick-up bed, comfort


Worst Features

more power, slightly longer bed 2ft, better economy

with my purchase.

Worst Features

Better gas milage and sportier look.

2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Crew Cab XLS Rwd 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review


This hybrid of an SUV & pick-up truck
is everything I had expected it to be.

The V6 engine is quite responsive with
plenty of "get-up-and-go" when needed
on the road even when you have the air
conditioner running.

The no-frills interior of the XLS is
very comfortable with some easy to
reach amenities. There is plenty of
leg room in the back for three adult
passengers and my two kids really enjoy
having the elbow room to spread out and
keep their distance from their sibling
rival.

Highly recommend it for anyone looking
for an alternative to the standard SUV
or those that are sticker-shocked by
the large crew cab truck prices.


Best Features

Power rear window feature is a real bonus but so is the rubber floor which allows for easy cleaning. Stow & go center console unit is very handy as well...


Worst Features

The XLS model alone does not come with a keyless remote entry unless you purchase the option group. A cheap tactic considering that it is inexpensive for the mfr. to install and really shows how money-grubbing they can be when it comes to shafting the consumers on options packages.
