Ford Explorer Sport Trac
2007-2010
2007 Redesign Year
Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2010 Trim Shown: 2010 Others

The 2007 redesign brought standard ESC and independent rear suspension, but only modest improvements to ride and handling. With the refinements, we found handling to be competent, but ride stiff and choppy. Also, braking performance had room for improvement, with a poor showing in our fade tests. Part of the problem is this version of the Sport Trac is based upon an earlier version of the Explorer, which lacked many of the refinements of the day. As result, we also found modest interior space, along with unimpressive fit and finish. However, outward visibility to the front is quite good and the seats are supportive -- if somewhat lumpy. The bed is good for a six-foot load with the tailgate open and the bed extender in place. It also contains hidden storage.

2001 Redesign Year
Ford Explorer Sport Trac 2005 Trim Shown: 2005 Sport Utility

Based on the Explorer, the Sport Trac is a four-door pickup with a five-passenger cabin and a small cargo bed. Handling is secure and relatively responsive, but the ride is stiff, choppy, and uncomfortable. An adequate selection of storage nooks is provided, along with a removable zippered bag between the front seats. The four-foot cargo bed, with a volume of about 30 cubic feet, is made of sturdy, rustproof plastic. Because it is relatively short, its usefulness is somewhat limited, but an optional bed extender stretches the usable load floor to the end of the tailgate. Properly equipped, Explorer Sport Trac is good to tow 5,100 pounds. However, a tip-up of the two-wheel-drive version in the government rollover test is a concern. Therefore, we recommend only the four-wheel-drive version.
