I did a search and did not see that anyone posted this. It really looks alot like the new F150.
Ford invented the sport utility truck in 2001, bringing to market the Explorer Sport Trac, the first sport utility vehicle with the versatility of four full doors, a roomy feature-filled interior and a pickup truck's cargo box. With a wider and longer stance and improved power, this concept offers even more versatility and flexibility than today's Explorer Sport Trac. It also comes equipped with Ford's exclusive Roll Stability Control.
The Explorer Sport Trac concept takes the vehicle to a new level Ã¢â‚¬â€œ lower than ever 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.
The Explorer Sport Trac concept's smooth appearance is achieved by simple lines, excellent proportions and clean body panels. The door handles have been shaved off, adding to the sleek look of this street rod machine. Two side scoops located just in front of the A-pillar and two hood scoops give this concept a performance look. In the rear, sleek wraparound taillamps make a distinctive statement.
The Explorer Sport Trac concept's interior adds to its street rod look and feel. With two rows of seating, the environment is simple, yet modern. It features four bucket captainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s chairs separated by a front and rear center console with an abundance of storage. The truck's primary gauges are contained within a singe oval instrument binnacle. The speedometer is prominently displayed next to the tachometer. Audio and climate controls are presented in the center of the instrument panel, just ahead of the floor-mounted shifter. Polished aluminum accents the air vents, instrument binnacle and shifter.
The Sport Trac concept is equipped with Ford's exclusive Roll Stability Control technology, which adds another dimension of sensing to conventional electronic stability control systems. Roll Stability Control will be included on more than half a million Ford Motor Company SUVs by the end of 2005.
