I sure hope Ford comes out with a new and larger version of the Sport Trac in 2006. I have the 2003 model and I must admit my 5' 10" frame has all it can do to fit in the "mini" cab. With the seat all the way back my knees are plumb against the dash. I cannot stretch out my legs so consequently I'm cramped all the time while driving. I cannot believe anyone over 6 feet can fit into this vehicle. Other than this the vehicle performs OK if you don't mind a buckboard ride.

my sentiments exactly. While I haven't driven one, I did sit in the passenger seat of an '05 with the moonroof. My head, on its 6'3" body length, was touching the cab roof.

#34 of 351 2007 Adrenalin

Personally, I'm waiting for the next Adrenalin, the one Ford showed at New York. It appears all they did to create the show vehicle was to take the concept from the Detroit show and paint it red. But the specs they are touting for the SVT Adrenalin are impressive. It will have the 4.6L supercharged 390hp engine from the 03-04 Mustang Cobra, the 6-speed auto from the Navigator, AWD, IRS and a 6000 lb tow rating. With SVT suspension tuning it should be awesome baby!

Currently I have an 02 Doge Ram 1500 QC and I have been waiting eagerly for the SVT Adrenalin to become available. Does anyone have any idea what pricing will be for the SVT SportTrac Adrenalin when it does become available??? I am getting very ansy for a new vehicle, so much so that I went and checked out an SRT-8 Magnum but I would really prefer to have some what of the utility of the pickup bed albeit however small it is on the Adrenalin and I also need the convience of the four door cabin. Any input on pricing would be greatly appreciated.

this vehicle should be great guys i'm a svt owner now and probably always will be. The SVT sports trac should be out by july of next year.(not verified) based on dealer assumption. it will range from 35,000.00 to 40,000.00 (not verified) dealer assumption. but if it's svt it's well worth it as far as honda's are concerned hell my svt focus is just killing them on the roads even the v-tec ones.when you can top-out at over 140 mph on a 4 bangger 2.0 your running .SVT has changed my thinking. I will get the 2007 SVT spots trac i'm placing the deposit on it next month. oh and by the way remeber this : FORD BUILT WITH TOOLS NOT CHOPSTICKS!!!!!!!!!

FORD BUILT WITH TOOLS NOT CHOPSTICKS!!!!!!!!!
LOL.....that's pretty funny
But anyway, whether or not the Japanese build their trucks with chopsticks or not, the fact remains that the Honda Ridgeline, Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier currently rule the compact truck segment. The Ranger and Colorado don't come close, although the Dakota does, some what.
Also in the fullsize segment many say the Titan is better than the F-150 although the F-150 sells a whole lot more units.
Anyway, I sure hope this new Explorer Sport Trac puts them back in the game. The Ranger is waaaaaay too old to compete with the Ridgeline, Tacoma, Frontier or Dakota.

can a current sport trac owner let me know if a full size dirt bike (say a honda cr250) or a full size quad (say a kawasaki 360 Prairie 4x4) can fit in the bed with the tail gate down? thanks
#40 of 351 Ford Media release is out
Sep 30, 2005 (9:56 am)
Ford has released their press package:
It looks like a winner. For example, Ford made it much quieter than the Ridgeline,and it has all of the air bags, stability control, luxury features, and the V8 option, and so forth the 2006 Explorer has. The bed is also longer than before, making it much more useful. For people with cargo to carry, it is may also be much more useful than an SUV, wagon or hatchback, since the cargo is in a separate compartment (lessening noise and increasing safety), and it will be able to carry tall cargo.
The only problem I see is Ford's lack of displacement on demand / cylinder shut off technology, something far easier to implement on the pushrod V8s from DCX and GM. Based on GMs information about excellent fuel mileage from the 2007 Tahoe / Yukon, the 2007 full sized GM pickups may obtain better fuel mileage than the mid-sized Sport-Trac.
