The 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac facelift offered standard ESC and variable rear suspension, but only slight improvements in ride and handling. We thought the handling to be adequate, but the ride to be rough and stiff. Additionally, we saw space for improvement in braking performance. Because this Sport Trac is based on a previous generation of the Explorer, it lacks several modern features that were commonplace at the time. Consequently, the inside area was small, and the fit and quality were subpar. An outward sight to the front, on the other hand, is excellent, and the seats are comfortable despite being bumpy. A six-foot load can be accommodated in the bed when the tailgate is opened, and the bed extender is installed. Hidden storage is also available.


The 2007 FORD EXPLORER SPORT TRAC is offered in 2 trim levels:

  • XLT: manually adjusted bucket seats
  • Limited: leather-wrapped shift knob

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 4.0-liter V6 engine in the 2007 Sport Trac puts out 210 horsepower and 254 lb-feet of torque when it comes to power. Four-wheel drive and an all-new 4.6-liter V8 rated at 292 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque are available on either model. The Detroit Free Press reports that while fuel efficiency for both engines is low, it is still “extremely competitive.” On the other hand, some are disappointed with the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. According to the EPA, the standard V6 engine gets 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.


It’s a four-door SUV with a compact pickup-like cargo bed. There are two trim levels to choose from. All-wheel-drive, keyless entry, cruise control, air conditioning, and a CD player are included in the well-equipped XLT model. When you go up to the Limited trim, you’ll get unique bumpers and side mirrors, fog lamps, sidestep guards, 18-inch wheels, a power driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob. You may also choose an enhanced sound system with a CD changer and subwoofer along with satellite radio and leather seating and adjustable pedals, as well as a heated windshield and sunroof. Ford provides a cage-like bed extension and a hard tonneau cover for the cargo area as optional extras.


The inside of the 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac has been renovated, with new materials, colors, and seats. Rubber flooring with Berber carpeted mats, a 60/40-split-folding rear bench seat, and temperature and compass displays are just a few of the standout features. Corrosion-resistant sheet-molded composite is used to make the 4.5-foot cargo box, which has a dent- and scratch-resistant black inner lining. Customers can stack two 2-by-4 boards on top of each other across the breadth of the box to create a tier system for storing items. This Ford vehicle has three cargo bins that may be used as iceboxes or to store damp objects since they are incorporated into the bed’s load floor.

Ride Quality

The 2007 year Sport Trac is a massive improvement over its predecessor, with an adjustable front and rear suspension, well-tuned dampers, and springs, as well as impressive road isolation and fast steering. The ride is nearly as comfortable as a luxury automobile, and the handling is precise. When it comes to torsional stiffness and noise-dampening materials, the Sport Trac’s interior is substantially quieter than before.

Optional 4WD

All variants of the Sport Trac can be ordered with a four-wheel drive or two-wheel drive as an option. To use the Control Trac 4WD system, you must choose one of three settings: “4×4 Auto mode is designed for daily driving and only sends power to the rear wheels until they start to slide, at which time it switches to the front wheels automatically. Off-road or severe winter conditions call for the 4×4 High mode, which splits power 50/50 between the front and rear wheels. A boat may be towed out of the water using the 4×4 Low mode, which locks the transfer case.”
