Quiet, Smooth, and a Handsome truck

I only drive a pickup a couple thousand miles a year but I wanted one that was fun to drive and comfortable. I could not justify 35K for a new Colorado or Ridgeline so I researched midsized used trucks. Consumers rated the Sport Trac very highly. I liked the appearance of a one-owner 2007 with 79K that was exceptionally clean and after a test drive, I bought it. The truck is roomy, quiet, smooth, tight, comfortable and the 6 cylinders deliver an average mileage of 19 MPG. My only regret is that the dealer put new A/W tires on and they are noisy. The truck is reasonably quiet, however, even with the noisy tires. Ford should bring the Sport Trac back. They do plan to start selling the Ranger (similar to the Sport Trac) in 2018 or 9. If you are in the market for a really neat midsize truck, and not fond of spending big bucks for a new one, you should consider checking out a Sport Trac.

In 2009 I bought a new 2008 Sport Trac. I LOVE this truck. I'm a lady in my early 50's and I've owned LOTS of vehicles and this is one of my top favorites. Rides, handles and parks very well. Gas mileage could be a little better but, hey, it IS a truck! It tells you if you have a low tire, your door is ajar and a whole bunch of other stuff. I will have this vehicle as long as it will hold up if that's 20 years from now!

I had been admiring the sport trac for a few years and actually work with a guy that has an '04. With a daughter that's about to start driving it was time to pass my workhorse Jeep Cherokee Sport down and purchase my Sport Trac. I really had my heart set on a practically new 2010 w/ all the bells & whistles but unfortunately was a little out of my price range. I finally found an '08 and love it. I am having to get used to how smooth & quiet the ride is. I've driven my parents Cadillac and my Sport Trac is comparable. Some truck guys may not think that's cool but it's fine w/ me!

Mid size truck, big size heart!

by from Missouri on December 19, 2012

This is my second truck. Great handling. Plenty of power and snappy horsepower. Very nice interior. Would buy another when the time comes.

I am a mid forties female. You name it, I've owned it, sports cars, luxury cars, sedans and trucks but my Sport Trac is my favorite of all! I bought it new in 2008 and have not regretted one minute of it. Rides good with roomy interior. When I need to throw something in back, I can! It's a great girl truck! Love, love, love it. I can't believe they stopped making them.

This truck is fantastic. Anybody that takes a ride becomes astonished. What a great piece of Art . Only complaint is the gas mileage but the trade out is a truck that gets up and moves when you want it too. I leased this truck, but I am figuring out ways to go ahead and buy it I don't want to give it up. Dang is that love..
