2010 FORD SPORT TRAC 'ADRENALIN' 4.6 V8 AWD LIMITED EDITION
When you're in the business of dealing in Low Mileage, Unique, Documented Vehicles choosing a Collectible Late Model Company Truck becomes equally as important as choosing the same in Classic Cars. This mission was no easy chore. Spoiled by the "Sportside' Bed and Widebody look of our 1999 Chevy Silverado we waited 9 years for Chevrolet and GMC to re-issue the Sportside bed again. So, back to searching. We are ashamed to admit this Limited Build Ford production truck slipped right behind us un-noticed. Maybe it was the lack of advertising, or even 'seeing one' on the road, or at a local Central FLA. Ford Store but, it took a series of 7 '5-Star' Reviews posted on the Internet to catch our attention. Ford actually produced the 'Sport Trac Adrenalin' beginning in 2008. Promised to build a SVT version in 2009 only to completely pull the plug on production Oct. 29, 2010. Since only about 60,000 Sport Tracs were built each year and only about 10% as "Adrenalin" Editions, production turned out to be very low.In fact in V8 form it is written only 660 were built. Since most of those were the V6 version, low mile Adrenalin V8's are extremely hard to come by.
The Sport Trac Model pretty much came 'loaded' with all the most desirable features but, only the "Adrenalin' Models carried as Standard a "Black Nostril Grille", Fog Lamps, Composite Cargo Box (said t be virtually indestructible), Locking Tailgate, Power Heated Mirrors, with 'Puddle Lamps', Power Sliding (Down) Rear Window, Full Leather, / Heated Seats w/ 10- way Power drivers Side, the usual 60/40 Rear seat, , a Killer AM/FM/6-CD Changer Stereo, MP3 Audio System, with Sirius Sat./ Syn Activated Voice Control, Automatic Dusk Headlamps, Unique only-to-the Adrenalin Headlights, Outside Temp Display, All-Wheel Drive, Independent Rear Suspension, Cargo Box Tie downs, Trailer Sway control, 22.5 gal Fuel tank. 4 Power Point Suspension, the 'New' Advance Trac 5 Star Stability System, . 'Securicode' Keyless Door Pad, 'SOS' Post Crash Alert System, plus the usual Ford 36,000 mile (60k Powertrain) Warranty. On our truck, the added Options of $3300 in "Rapid Spec AWD Limited Adrenalin Package " was added which included Power Adjustable Pedals, 20" Chrome Polished Wheels, w/ 255/50R290 Tires and Trailer Tow Class IV Package. The 4.6 Liter V8 with 24 Valve Motor was also added at an additional cost of $1310 tied to the latest 6 Speed Automatic Transmission. The FIA Splash guards, Bed Extender and Power Moon roof added another $1240 bringing this to a total of over $42,000 new. What isn't talked about on the Window Sticker is you ALSO got Special new fender vents, Front & rear Fascia panels, 3-flank-Mount Built-In Coolers w/ Plus for storage of beverages Running Boards, Dual Chrome Tip Exhaust, Coool Perforated Seats, Special 'Adrenalin' Carpeted Floor mats held by heavy Duty Rubber Mats, Hard Tonneau and (sometimes) even a Heated Windshield. Was Ford emptying the Parts Bins?? Top this off with unheard-of Towing capacity of 7160 lbs. and you start to wonder why Ford ever dropped this Model?? The Big Attraction for us (with a bad back) was you didn't need a Step ladder to clean it (or get into). It s fast and yet still gets 17 mpg in town. Seemed like a no-brainer to buy this beauty. Add the additional collectability of a one-year-only color ("Blue Flame"), V8 AWD and being the last year built and this one is a KEEPER. Good luck on finding a low-mile-version- people drive the pants off these! REDUCED TO $33,500
