Looking to buy an explorer sport trac..

Postby tstroud05 » Wed Apr 23, 2008 6:30 pm

Hi all,
I am getting ready to sell my 2000 siverado 2500, and I'm going to buy an explorer sport trac. Using it for a lot of hunting and a little fishing. Does anyone have any feedback on the towing capabilities (i will be towing an 18 ft. pontoon boat)? Or any over all reviews on this vehicle?

What size motor you gettin in it? If possible get the 4.0, thats what I have in my Ranger, and pulled my dads 18' Alumacraft and my buddies horse trailer with it. Its not bad on the interstate either, until you start going up hills. But for my enclosed and the occasional boat pull it works for me. Dont expect it to be like the 2500 tho..that might take a little getting used to. Other than that tho with the way gas is right now, I love mine. Lets me do all the things that I like to do and is "easier" on the wallet. I would put some bigger tires on it tho. I have 265/75/16 on my ranger and coulda went bigger. GOOD LUCK

Thanks for the advise. I believe that all of the sport tracs that I have looked at are 4.0. Wouldn't go any smaller anyway. I know what your saying about getting used to the smaller truck. If these gas prices weren't outrageous I would keep the Chevy... But I think the sport trac will suit me well as long as I get a 4x4 for the winter time.

Yeah 4 wheel drive is optional. Usually about a $7,000-5,000 difference in price though. They just seem like a really nice outdoors truck. Not too big, but can get the job done with decent gas mileage.
