Either engine and transmission combination is available in rear-wheel or 4-wheel drive. The 4x4 comes with ControlTrac, with settings for everyday driving, slippery conditions and a low gear for real off-road situations. The Adrenaline comes with full-time all-wheel drive that delivers power to the wheels that need it most at any given time.
All Sport Tracs have stability control, 4-wheel ABS, independent front and rear suspension and a stabilizer bar. They also have front airbags, side curtain airbags, rollover sensor and crash sensor standard. This would probably be how the Sport Trac earned 5-star crash ratings for all passenger positions in front and side crash tests from the NHTSA.
The XLT has a roomy, comfortable interior, with a 6-way adjustable driver's seat, while the Limited has a 10-way power seat. Front seats in the Limited are heated, too. Air conditioning is standard for all models, as is a split-folding rear bench seat. The standard stereo includes CD and MP3 capabilities, plus six months of Sirius satellite radio. Power windows and locks are standard, as are front and rear power outlets and a tilt steering column. Adjustable pedals are optional on all models.
The XLT features 16" alloy wheels, while the Limited upgrades those to 18". The Adrenalin package boasts 20-inch wheels. The Limited also adds heated exterior mirrors and an easy-access hinged tonneau cover for the bed. XLT buyers can add the cover as an option.
The XLT Convenience package adds a few features, such as an upgraded driver's seat, power adjustable pedals, a reverse sensing system and auto-dimming headlights. SYNC voice-activated entertainment and audio controls are available as well. The Limited Convenience package adds niceties such as dual-zone climate control, power adjustable pedals and a 4-line message center.
The Explorer Sport Trac Adrenalin package looks more aggressive than the other Sport Tracs with a prominent front air dam with fog lamps and a black crosshatched grille. The rear fascia is revamped and includes a single-pipe, dual-tip exhaust. Custom 20-inch wheels sit inside vented front fenders. The interior is finished in Dark Charcoal with perforated leather seats.
