2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Overview
Designed with the Ford F-150 in mind, the 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac boasts enhanced safety features and technology while combining truck capability and toughness with SUV utility.
The 2010 Explorer Sport Trac is available in two series, XLT and Limited, and two powertrain options: a 210-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 mated to a five-speed automatic with the ability to tow up to 5,310 lbs. and a 292-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with a 6,800-lb. towing capacity. Rugged and powerful, the Sport Trac is available in 4x2, 4x4 and all-wheel-drive configurations. More powerful than its competitors, the Honda Ridgeline and Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab, the Ford Explorer Sport Trac V-8 produces the most power in its class.
The 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac offers plenty of cargo room, but just average fuel economy, ranging from 13 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, depending on engine and configuration. The SUV is equipped with a 4.5-foot cargo box and three integrated cargo bins located in the bed.
A next-generation navigation system with SIRIUS Travel Link allows you to access to information including current gas prices from approximately 120,000 filling stations, traffic reports, weather conditions, sports scores and movie listings. A power-sliding rear window is standard, while keypad entry, heated mirrors, moonroof and SYNC® multimedia system are optional.
As for safety, a standard trailer sway control works in conjunction with AdvanceTrac and roll stability control (RSC) to apply the brakes or reduce engine torque in order to bring both the vehicle and trailer under control. Ford’s AdvanceTrac with RSC system utilizes a roll rate sensor to detect roll angle and will apply the brakes to one or more wheels or reduce engine power to counter a potential rollover.
Additional safety features include safety canopy side curtain airbags, an advanced restraints module and dual front-crash sensors, five-level front-passenger sensing system, driver-seat position sensor, dual-stage front airbags, and four-wheel power disc brakes with a standard four-sensor, four-channel anti-lock braking system.
The 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is a truck/SUV hybrid that offers a unique combination of power, utility, and safety technologies.
