The next-gen Sport Trac has been revealed as a lightly disguised concept. To correct the tip-over problems of the current Sport Trac, the truck has been made longer and wider than the current generation. Click the link for more info and pictures from Autoblog.
The new Sport Trac will have an all-new independent rear suspension and have Ford?s Roll Stability Control. The 21 inch wheels, lowered ride and ?Lightning-like? side air outlets harken to a possible SVT version in a few years mentions Ford.
The cargo bed has been made 30% larger and the interior is also larger than the 2005.
?We wanted the Explorer Sport Trac concept to turn heads and to give it ?street cred?,? said J Mays, group vice president, Global Design. ?This concept is as at home in an urban environment as it is hauling surf boards to the beach. Versatility is ? and will continue to be ? what Sport Trac is all about.?
The concept is nearly 5 inches longer, 2 inches wider, and sits 2 inches lower than today?s current Sport Trac model and is powered by a 4.6 liter V-8. While it?s better than the current gen, it breaks no new ground in the Ford truck styling department.
