Vehicle Overview
The introduction of the new midsize four-door Explorer doesn’t mean the previous model disappeared. Restyled as an early 2001 model, the two-door body style — dubbed Explorer Sport — continues in the market without significant changes for 2002. The Explorer Sport Trac also debuted in spring 2000 and is based on the earlier-generation four-door Explorer but with an open cargo bed.



Exterior
The Explorer Sport is 180.4 inches long overall with a 101.8-inch wheelbase. It measures 70.2 inches wide and 68.2 inches tall.



Interior
Passenger capacity is far smaller than that of the four-door Explorer. The two-door Sport fits only four occupants on cloth-upholstered bucket seats or captain’s chairs up front and a split, folding rear seat. Cargo volume is 71.4 cubic feet with the split rear seatbacks folded down for extra storage room. Leather upholstery is optional.



Under the Hood
The lone engine is a 203-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 with overhead camshafts. Either a five-speed-automatic or five-speed-manual transmission can be installed. Explorer Sport models come with either rear-drive or Control Trac II four-wheel drive.



Safety
Antilock brakes are standard. Side-impact airbags for the front seats and a Reverse Sensing System that alerts the driver of nearby objects to the rear while backing up are optional.
