2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Review

With an upscale interior, spacious crew cab design and an available V8, the 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is more passenger-friendly than most rivals. It can tow a bit more than most as well.

Pros & Cons

  • Upscale cabin
  • Powerful V8
  • Impressive towing capacity
  • Short bed limits cargo-carrying capability

2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Overview

When it was new, reviewers praised the Explorer Sport Trac for its comfortable ride and powerful engines. It came standard with a V6, but most reviewers tested and preferred the available V8 for its smooth power delivery. The Explorer Sport Trac came with either rear- or four-wheel drive. Notably, its best fuel economy rating of 15/21 mpg city/highway is with the V8 engine. A V8-powered Explorer Sport Trac can tow up to 7,160 pounds, which is more than what most compact trucks can tow.

The Explorer Sport Trac is crew-cab only, and can seat up to five people. Most reviewers found the cabin spacious with comfortable seats in both rows, though one critic noted that the seats need more thigh support. Reviewers liked the Explorer Sport Trac’s interior design, which it shares with the Ford Explorer SUV. They said it is built with mostly high-quality materials, and has an upscale look. When it was new, the 2010 Explorer Sport Trac came standard with a single-disc CD stereo with an auxiliary input jack and satellite radio and a power rear-sliding window. Available features include a CD changer, leather seats, heated power-adjustable front seats, Ford’s SYNC infotainment system, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control and a power sunroof.

Other Trucks to Consider

The 2010 Dodge Dakota is available with a crew cab and was one of the few alternatives that also offered a V8 option. Its towing capacity is similar to the Explorer Sport Trac’s, and reviewers liked its clever rear-seat storage option called Crate N Go, which they said makes it easier to keep smaller cargo items secure.

The 2010 Honda Ridgeline can’t tow as much as the Explorer Sport Trac, but its crew cab, short bed body style is similar in size. The Ridgeline comes standard with all-wheel drive, and reviewers also appreciated the Ridgeline’s innovate in-bed lockable trunk and tailgate, which can be opened multiple ways.
