2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4WD 4dr Crew Cab (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I have owned this vehicle for 5 years, but it was just totaled. I believe the side airbags prevented injury to driver as truck was rolled on it's side. Truck was totaled and wheel even came off ! Driver walked away with minor scratches. Sorry to see truck go to salvage, I really liked it ! Drives like a truck that it is. I believe newer 2007+ models drive better (revamped, newer platform ?).

Best Features

Nice sound system. Nice to have pickup bed in back with tonneau cover that keeps things dry. Very handy when my son and I go scuba diving, throw gear in back and go. No wet neoprene smell in cabin on way back !

Worst Features

Rear air conditioning fan is noisy. MP3 hookup would be nice. Gas mileage adequate at best , bordering poor ?
