Pros

Awesome vehicle with lots of built in technology

Cons

Loved It! — Absolutely loved this vehicle. Had watertight compartments recessed into the bed for storage, a hard watertight bed cover that covered the whole thing. Even a cigarette lighter power point in the bed. Microsoft Sync is awesome. Seamlessly shifting Auto 4x4 that you couldnt even feel when it shifts and traction control with roll stability control make it a very safe on icy roads. Independent suspension means that you hardly even feel all the washboard bumps on gravel roads.

Pros

Interior, Standard & Available Features, Overall Design

Cons

V6 is a little weak, fuel economy could be much better

2008 Explorer Sport Trac 4.0 2wd — The 4.0 lacks a little in passing power, but has enough torque for most off-roading and light towing. The truck responds well to ECU and exhaust upgrades. Ground clearance is as good as most mid-size pickups, but I'm adding a 2.5" suspension lift for more height. The interior is phenomenal, far, FAR superior to any other mid-size. Lots of neat features and cargo room are a plus.

Great Versatile Truck With Stylish Looks And A Comfortatable Ride. — I have had this ruck for over a year now. Other than it's great looks, it has a smooth and quiet ride. The interior is comfortable and well layed out. Some people do not like the door pulls but I think they are unique and stylish. The V8 is not quite what the concept is but with some upgrades it's showing great potential. Over all I rate this a 10

It hit a Moose

Hmmm...nice! — This vehicle was a great one. It hit a moose and they put it right back on the road and I drove it 15,000 more miles before I traded it for the 2010 Fusion. Mileage was decent as long as I stayed on the highway. Greatest observed was 24 MPG, worst was 10 MPG.

Ford Adrenalin — badass truck. mine is red and all wheel drive.. it has all the features that you dont need but are still nice to have. runs ok. could be better.. im looking into o roush supercharger and intake kits as well as exhaust and upgrading the 20 inch wheels to 22s or better. it is absolutely gorgeous the bodykit is sick. the black interior is awesome. cost is a little high at 35,000 all the way up through 40. it is a very well built truck for those who dont need a heavy duty truck but somethin just to haul the occasional lowes trip. great truck/suv

Pros

SYNC

Cons

stiff suspension

Test Drive — This is another truck that my dad got to drive for his company. It is pretty fast and has the new built in sync which is so much fun to use. One bad thing about it is the suspension is really stiff for a truck.
