The base price of the test truck was $29,115. The limited-slip rear axle, Pioneer Edition equipment leather seats and cargo cage brought the sticker price to $31,615. Warranty
Three years or 36,000 miles. Point: The Sport Trac is an ideal vehicle for people with an active, outdoor lifestyle. The cabin is as nice as any SUV, while the separate cargo bed keeps dirty items separate. The optional cargo cage can extend the bed length to 6 feet. Counterpoint: A little more power would be welcome, especially when hauling a load. The Pioneer stereo sounds great but has somewhat cryptic controls. SPECIFICATIONS:
