Summary

The 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT 4.6L is a versatile vehicle that combines the comfort and features of an SUV with the cargo-bed capabilities of a pickup truck. It is available with two engine options: a 4.0L V6 and a 4.6L V8. Both engines can be paired with the Control Trac four-wheel-drive system, which improves fuel economy by transferring torque to the front wheels only as needed. The Sport Trac has a 4.5-foot-long cargo bed lined with a corrosion-proof material, and additional features such as a cargo-bed extender and tonneau cover are available. Safety features include Advance Trac with roll stability control and side-curtain airbags. The XLT and Limited models offer various comfort and convenience features, and the Adrenalin Package adds all-wheel drive and exterior enhancements.

Frequently Asked Questions about Ford

How are VIN numbers stamped?

VIN numbers are typically stamped onto a metal plate, which is then attached to the vehicle. The stamping process involves using a series of dies to imprint the alphanumeric characters onto the plate. This plate is often affixed to the dashboard near the windshield, on the driver’s side door frame, or in the engine compartment. The stamping is done in a way that ensures durability and longevity, making the VIN easily readable throughout the vehicle’s lifespan.

How do you read a VIN number year?

The 10th digit of the VIN represents the vehicle’s model year. You can identify the model year of any vehicle using our free VIN decoder. If you have a VIN number year chart, you can also identify the model year of any vehicle by cross-checking the 10th digit with the chart.

Does the VIN number tell the manufacture date?

Yes, the VIN number provides information about the vehicle’s manufacture date. The easiest way to find the manufacture date of any Ford is by decoding the VIN number. Our VIN decoder effectively checks the model year of the vehicle for free. Enter or scan the VIN into the form above to get started.

Can VIN number tell engine size?

Yes, the VIN number can provide information about the engine size. The Vehicle Descriptor Section (VDS), which consists of digits 4 through 9 in the VIN, includes codes that specify details such as the engine type, model, and body style. By decoding these digits, you can gather information about your vehicle’s engine size. You can also check the engine size on any vehicle using our free VIN decoder.

How do Ford VIN numbers work?
