Special features for 2008

Part pickup and part SUV, the Sport Trac bridges the gap between Ford's mid-size Explorer SUV and the Ranger compact pickup. Its versatile setup includes seating for up to five passengers with cargo capacity similar to a short-bed pickup. It has electronic stability control and side air bags, both features that are not widely available on pickups, and has a four-wheel independent suspension, for better handling and a smoother ride.
The 2008 Ford Explorer Trac offers the best of both worlds – it combines the comfort and convenience of an SUV with the utility of a pick-up truck thrown in. The Explorer Trac is offered in two trims – the XLT and the Limited – with engines ranging from a 210 horsepower 4.0-liter V6 to a 292 horsepower 4.6-liter V8. It offers seating for up to five passengers and your choice of RWD, AWD or 4WD, depending on your preference. The Explorer Trac comes equipped with air conditioning, cruise, keyless entry, power controls, navigation, adjustable pedals and AM/FM/MP3/Satellite.
