As Ford introduced the Sport Trac Concept at the recent Detroit auto show, TCC’s spies caught the real thing just a few miles away.

Five inches longer and two inches wider than the current Sport Trac, Ford’s 2007 model will likely be powered with a 210-horsepower 4.0-liter V-6, or by an optional 4.6-liter V-8 as displayed in the concept. The production version will also offer Ford’s roll stability control and likely some surprises in regard to cargo options.

But there is no denying as to what this is. The production version has the same headlamps and taillamps as the concept, as well as identical wheels and glass (although the concept is shown with a fixed rear window). Door handles and a tailgate latch are added to the production version, as well as horizontal bars on the grille, production bumpers, roof-top rack, tie-downs, a bed liner, and a production-styled third brake light.

The Sport Trac will make its production debut in the 2006 calendar year, arriving at dealerships after the reworked Explorer and Mountaineer SUVs arrive in showrooms at the beginning of next year.
