2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac news, pictures, and information
FORD SPORT TRAC BLENDS SAFETY, TECHNOLOGY FOR 2010•Sport Trac continues to offer a unique combination of truck capability and SÚV refinement
•2010 Sport Trac includes standard Trailer Sway Control in its impressive lineup of safety technologies
•Available next-generation, voice-activated navigation system and the class-exclusive SIRIÚS Travel Link™
Sport Trac is the unrestricted utility vehicle that delivers rugged styling, capable power and performance along wîth a versatile cargo area to take customers where they want to go.
For 2010, Sport Trac helps owners get to their destinations using a next-generation navigation system wîth SIRIÚS Travel Link, which gives drivers and passengers access to up-to-the-minute information and entertainment including coast-to-coast coverage (48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia) of real-time traffic (in select markets) and weather reports; fuel options from more than 120,000 stations sorted by price and distance; major league pro and college sports as well as movie listings from more than 4,500 theaters.
Standard SafetyStandard for 2010, Trailer Sway Control works in conjunction wîth Sport Trac's standard AdvanceTrac® wîth RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) to determine from the yaw motion of the vehicle if the trailer is swaying and take measures – such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque – to bring both vehicle and trailer under control.
AdvanceTrac wîth RSC delivers a level of performance that competitive stability control systems can't match. Únlike competitors systems, the -exclusive AdvanceTrac wîth RSC utilizes a second gyroscopic roll rate sensor to determine the vehicle's body roll angle and roll rate.
Trailer Sway joins a host of already standard safety equipment, such as: Safety Canopy® side curtain air bags, AdvanceTrac wîth RSC, an advanced restraints module and dual front-crash sensors, five-level front-passenger sensing system, driver-seat position sensor, dual-stage front air bags, adaptive load-limiting safety-belt retractors, adaptive front-passenger-seat air-bag tether, adaptive air bag venting and adaptive-stroking §teering column.
Tough Truck-Inspired Design and Equipment
Sport Trac offers an overt nod to its inspiration wîth a tough truck exterior drawn from the design of the Ford Explorer and Ford F-150. Specific elements include:
•The standard chrome-finished grille for a bold front end
•A powerdome aluminum hood for a stronger appearance
•Pronounced wheel arches, helping to provide a rugged stance
•The C-pillar arch serves as visual distinction between people space and cargo room
•A hardy 4.5-foot cargo box lined wîth corrosion-proof sheet molded composite (SMC) material and lined wîth dent-proof and scratch-resistant material for protection from hard use
•Three integrated cargo bins are recessed into the bed of the truck for versatile, convenient storage
•The cargo cage bed extender and tonneau cover, which remain highly popular wîth customers
Capable Power and Performance
Sport Trac is outfitted standard wîth a 4.0-liter V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The available, class-exclusive, 4.6-liter V-8 engine wîth six-speed automatic transmission provides a power boost attractive to many customers.
Key considerations for Sport Trac's powertrain options are:
•The 4.0-liter V-6 is rated at 210 horsepower at 5,100 rpm and 254 ft.-lb. of torque at 3,700 rpm
•The 4.0-liter, equipped wîth a standard five-speed automatic, delivers a maximum 5,310 pounds of towing capacity and 1,450 pounds of payload
•The V-6 meets federal Tier II, Bin 4 tailpipe emissions
•The 4.6-liter, three-valve V-8 delivers 292 hp – the most horsepower in its class
•The available 4.6-liter V-8 and six-speed transmission deliver a maximum 6,800 pounds of towing capacity and 1,390 pounds of payload
•The V-8 meets federal Tier II Bin 5 standards, which is compliant wîth California's Low Emissions Vehicle II (LEV II) standards
Either engine can be equipped wîth the advanced Control Trac® four-wheel-drive system. Únlike less sophisticated systems, Control Trac automatically transfers torque to the front wheels as needed to maintain maximum traction at all times. This increases safety and security without compromising fuel economy or NVH. In addition, the Control Trac system features a torque-multiplying gear set (4x4 Low) in the transfer case for off-road applications that require extra power including deep sand, steep grades and towing a boat trailer out of water.
The Sport Trac front suspension design is a short- and long-arm design wîth coil-over shocks. The rear suspension is independent wîth a patent-pending, trailing blade design.
Sizable four-wheel disc brakes are standard, as is a four-wheel, four-channel Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) wîth electronic brake force distribution. The package creates a balanced chassis wîth ride and handling that is unrivaled in its §egmènt.
