What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Ford Explorer Sport Trac MPG

Ford Explorer Sport Trac Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2008 4dr SUT 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range Terrible. I've owned fullsize pickups and SUV so I know what to expect. I've never seen the average mpg display read over 15mpg for the six months I've owned it. The main reason I bought this was the combination AWD and 4WD transfer case, but it doesn't have a 2 wheel drive position like my Sierra did. Boy do I miss that, I averaged 20 mpg per tank.
2008 4dr SUT 292-hp 4.6L V8 6-sp automatic 4WD w/low range 99 Dodge Durango with 5.9 V8 got better fuel economy with same driving habits. Expected better with smaller V8 and 6 speed trans.
2007 4dr SUT 292-hp 4.6L V8 6-sp automatic 4WD w/low range highway mileage is very good, better than my lighter V6 Ranger; 21mpg on the highway @ 75mph on flat road. City, with the remote start in winter, with the AWD kicking in, and lead foot acceleration nets me 13mpg. A light foot can get 15mpg city
2002 4dr SUT 203-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
I think we all wish for 30 mpd-thats unrealistic when you have 10000+ lbs on the road when towing.
