2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Overview

The second-generation Ford Explorer Sport Trac underwent a complete redesign for 2007, giving it a new V8 engine, enhanced handling and greater cargo and towing capacity. "The result is a roomier Sport Trac with an exceptionally quiet, comfortable ride, and an interior that's a clone of the attractive and refined Explorer SUV," says the Detroit Free Press. Reviewers agree that the five-seat sport utility truck is perfect for those who require some truck-type cargo capacity, but don't need an enclosed cargo space or full-size truck bed. "...Sport Trac has the amenities of an SUV, though without the enclosed wagon back, and the capabilities of a pickup, without the hauling capacity. Not exactly the best of both worlds, but a practical and versatile vehicle just the same," concludes New Car Test Drive.

Reviewers feel the 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is at the top end of its segment for cost. With options, a Limited model can top out upwards of $30,000. But BusinessWeek still feels the Sport Trac is worth the sometimes-hefty price tag: "Though it can get pricey -- depending on the options one tacks on -- the Sport Trac offers a lot of half-SUV, half-truck for the money." However, Kelley Blue Book expects the Sport Trac "will have a lower resale value than other vehicles in its class, retaining just 32 percent of its value over 60 months." Similarly, IntelliChoice gives the base model a "worse than average" value rating for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership, compared to other vehicles in its class.

The Ford Explorer Sport Trac has two available trims: the base XLT and the Limited. Both are available as a 4X2 or as a 4X4 and with your choice of a 4.0 L V6 or a 4.6L V8.
