First generation (2001-2005)

The Explorer Sport Trac was introduced in 2001. It was built on the Explorer chassis, but with a small pickup bed behind the four normal SUV doors. To make up for the short box, a bed extender was available. The bed was made entirely of a composite material, and a hard plastic tonneau cover was a common factory option. The pickup had a more rugged-appearing front end, which the 2-door Explorer Sport also received. The rugged look carried to the interior, where the only floor option was a full rubber covering. Carpet was not available. Instead of the usual sliding rear window found on most pickups, the Sport Trac had a power "Breezeway" window. The 4.0 L Cologne V6 producing 210 hp/225 ftq was the only engine option. This generation Sport Trac remained in production through June 2005, when the final 2005 model year vehicle rolled off the line. The liter (spelled liter in American English and litre in Commonwealth English) is a unit of volume. ... Left side of a 2. ... The Ford Essex V6 engine V6 and V-6 redirect here. ...

The Sport Trac was afflicted by the outdated chassis of the Explorer on which it was based.
The niche market the Sport Trac served was attacked by predators of all shapes and sizes, and its niche market dwindled.
The Sport Trac’s rear coil-over springs, monotube shocks, and stabilizer bar have slightly stiffer rates than those found on the Explorer to accommodate the longer wheelbase.
