Ford shows Explorer Sport Trac concept

Dearborn, Michigan – On Thursday, Ford showed illustrations of a Ford Explorer Sport
Trac concept with a wider and longer stance and improved power, and Ford’s Roll
Stability Control.

“With the addition of a number of new competitive offerings, the sport utility truck
segment is red hot, and it’s time for the original to raise the bar again for
everyone else to try to follow,” said Chris Feuell, Ford Motor Company SUV group
marketing manager. “This concept magnifies all of the aspects of Sport Trac that
customers already love and introduces some street- savvy cues.”

The Explorer Sport Trac concept’s interior is larger and the cargo bed is about 30
percent bigger than today’s model for increased cargo capacity. It’s lower for a
mean, street look. Riding on massive 21-inch, 10-spoke aluminum wheels with a
gunmetal finish and custom Goodyear tires, the Explorer Sport Trac concept delivers
an improved ride thanks to a new independent rear suspension.
