The Explorer Sport Trac comes very well equipped compared to compact pickup trucks. Standard features, even on the base XLT, include full power accessories, cruise control, air conditioning, and Sirius Satellite Radio. Even the entry-level trim of the Ford Explorer Sport Trac is nicely appointed, and Edmunds reviewers find that "the well-equipped XLT features a composite cargo box," along with "full power accessories, power rear window, foglights, keyless entry," and "cruise control." ConsumerGuide adds that the base-level Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT boasts standard "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls" and an "AM/FM/CD/MP3 player" with a "digital-media player connection." For a vehicle that has an MSRP of less than $33,000 even in Limited trim, the 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is near the top of the class in terms of standard equipment; the Limited loads the Sport Trac with such things as fancier wheels, heated leather seats, an upgraded center console, and Ford's SYNC entertainment/navigation system. Adrenalin models add a more aggressive appearance to the Limited's equipment, including 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, dual exhaust tips, black fascias, and monotone perforated leather seats.

A moonroof, a premium sound system with subwoofer and six-disc changer, and a next-generation voice-activated navigation system from Sirius Travel Link are among the most desirable options. Edmunds says that some of the "major options include a heated windshield, a sunroof, leather seating," and a "navigation system (with voice operation)."

Unfortunately, some of those features don't score too well in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. In particular, Cars.com gripes that some of their reviewers "didn't like how much glare there was" coming off the heated windshield, and they feel "it's time Ford upgraded to a system with better voice technology" since the current navigation system’s "computerized voice continually mangled the pronunciation of street names" during their test. Other features on the Ford Explorer Sport Trac receive more praise than criticism, and ConsumerGuide finds that some of the best are the "DVD entertainment system" and the SYNC electronics integration package on the Ford Explorer Sport Trac that J.D. Power says "links Bluetooth-enabled cell phones and various MP3 players to a simple voice-activated command system."

Conclusion

With a long list of standard features available, the Sport Trac is a relatively good value; just watch the options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
