More room than most full size trucks. Very durable vehicle.  Just the right size for passengers and towing capacity.

Smaller truck bed.

The Best Overall Truck That I've Owned Before. — Everything about this truck is family friendly, very roomy, economical, easy to drive, comfortable for long trips, sporty features, plus the ability to use as any standard truck. I would recommend this truck to anyone. It has exceeded my expectations and I've put 50k miles on it.

Just Right — I work in the city but go to the country on the weekends. This truck is perfect for that lifestyle. I wish it had a bit more pickup power for the on-ramps though. It is easier to drive than a f-150. I would recommend this truck to anyone.

This Is An Awesome Truck! — I love this car, it has a sporty look on the inside, automatic windows, and the back window goes down which was awesome, great breaking system, nice height. 4 wheel drive so you can go anywhere. Good for a hauling around family and friends. Lots of room in the back seats for tall people.

The Best Looking Truck! — Excellent truck overall. With the V-6, still has great pick-up, however she is a gas guzzler but not very bad. Tank will last you about two weeks to each fill-up and each fill up at empty will cost around $80. With or without the extra features I put on my Sport Trac, this truck is a fun vehicle to drive and I would buy a second one!

zippy little truck with on and off-road aggresiveness

Cons

Gotta Drive One To Understand So Go Out And Drive One. — first it's a Ford. It's most comfortable suv I've driven. looks hot and gets looks. other then low mpg's and basic maintnace she's rather afordable. and that 4.0 litre is amazing for a V6. It's also has waterproof seats with stain gaurd, rubber floor board for easy cleaning. coolest feature has got to be the factory pioneer 6 disc indash cd player/am/fm radio. for the pet owners fold flat 60/40 split rear bench seat. 4 full doors and a 4 foot bed with a "bed extender" makes a lot of useable space

Ford Sport Trac — Nice truck not as big as I would like but gas prices limit me. I pull a 20' boat with it and never had a problem even on the steepest ramps.Not bad on gas. Rides pretty good for a truck.

Sweet Truck — I love this truck, it is great in the snow and rain. I take it offroading all the time, but it is also great on the roads. The gas mileage is not great, but it handles great, and it looks awesome too. I bought the car with 70,000 miles on it, and it now has 109,000 and it runs the same.

Beats The Socks Off The Gmc Sierra Classic 4 X 4 I Had — Well, I bought this vehicle used, obviously and have had no real issues or problems with it. Only thing was after I bought it I had it stored away for 6 months, hidden as a surprise Christmas present, then a week after we started driving it the 4 wheel drive module went out (bad sensor) but since I had insured it through CARFAX at the time of the CARFAX investigation and inspection, the repairs were covered in the warranty and we haven't had any other problems with it. I had hoped for a slightly better fuel mileage then my wife and daughter seem to get with it but then it is 4 wheel drive and we drive on almost all rural rock roads, very little actual paved highway driving. As always, the Ford seems to be built tougher and holds up better with out falling apart or rattling to pieces, when used in off highway locales. I was especially pleased with all the nice ammenities and options on the 2002 model I was able to find; leather seats, power mooon/sun roof, premium sound system, heated seat for winter time, etc. It is an all around great handling and riding vehicle. Wish I had it with me over in Thailand too or could find one like it for when I am there.
