Most versatile Vehicle

I purchased The Sport Trac used with 39,000 miles, I now have 45000 miles on it. The V8 is a better choice than the V6. I average between 17 and 20 mpg combine city and highway with the V8. The motor ...
I purchased The Sport Trac used with 39,000 miles, I now have 45000 miles on it. The V8 is a better choice than the V6. I average between 17 and 20 mpg combine city and highway with the V8. The motor is quiet and powerful and easily tows a small car on trailer, less then 7500lbs. I'm a big guy and the seating is adjustable and the pedals adjust back and forth so my wife has no trouble adjusting to her 5'-2" frame. Fit and finish on the exterior and interior is much better then my 95 Ford. a vast improvement. One draw back is the driver information display interface. Every input is through the reset button on the speedo. Instructions are vague and not at all intuitive. I usually give up resetting anything about half the time. The interior is great for four adults and the bed will handle just about anything I need to haul around. Overall a very fine vehicle.

We've had our V8 XLT now for 2 and half years and have had zero reliability issues, the fuel economy is good, the utility part of the car is great and the the V8 has a bit of sport to go with it. I used to have a V6 Explorer but find the gearbox to be very unforgiving, the V8 with the 6 speed is fantastic. Also a few months back my Finace had a bad accident in our sport trac, thankfully everyone was ok and the car was not a total, but we can say that the sport trac probably saved her life!!!! I'd like to see a new generation of Explorer/Sport trac that will follow the lines of the 2010 Mustang/Challenger etc. No one is there yet but I think it could look great. Good work Ford

K8I thoroughly enjoy this truck/SUV! So much that I traded in my first one for a newer one! I have leather seats (easier to keep clean), a V6, Blue exterior with grey interior. I really appreciate the easy to clean flooring and the exterior outlet in the bed of the truck for plugging in a radio or pump for an air mattress. There is also extra storage in the truck bed as well. My Sport Track has over 68,000 miles on it and still drives like new! The only things I have had to replace are the rear blinker bulbs, the battery (due to lots and stop and start when working the 2010 Census), and I replaced the tires after 60,000 miles. This truck/SUV is very comfortable and seems to attract other friendly Sport Track owners! I have received many compliments on its overall appearance, comfort and the fact that the back seat has a centered A/C vent. It also comes with 3 tether bars for infant/child carseats (that my husband uses to tie down tools with). The back seat splits and lays down. The jack and tools are easily accessible under/behind the back seat and there is even a cubbie to hide jumper cables in! I Love this truck!

THE BEST SPORT TRACK YET, VERY MUCH IMPROVED OVER THE 2001-2005 MODELS. THIS TRUCK IS AWESOME, RIDES LIKE CAR AND IS A GREAT COMBINATION BETWEEN AN F-150 AND EXPLORER MINE IS THE LIMTED 4X4 WITH THE 4.6 V8 MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THE GAS MILEAGE WHICH REALLY ISN'T TO BAD CONSIDERING IT'S A TRUCK I USUALLY GET 16-20 MPG DEPENDING ON HIGHWAY OR CITY DRIVING. SOME PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT THE DOOR HANDELS I THINK THEY ARE COOL AND ONCE YOU GET USE TO THEM IT ISN'T ANY DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER CAR. IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A 4 DOOR TRUCK BUT DON'T REALLY WANT A FULL SIZE I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW 2007 EXPLORER SPORT TRAC.

I actually do like my 2007 Sport Trac XLT for its drive, power and general comfort, as well as its towing capacity and looks. But there are limitations. It's probably the case with a lot of pickups, but there are significant blind spots to the rear, especially with the back-seat headrests up and the tonneau cover installed. You need to look really closely for traffic to your rear when on the highway. Lesson learned there. Mileage is pretty much what everyone else says here. Around 20 highway (no more than 20), and around 14-15 in town. While the ride is good in front seats, my passengers in the rear seats say it's not that good. If you don't already have a cargo bar or net for the pickup bed, get one. Your groceries will slide all over, and it's not easy to retrieve the milk and soda at the other end of the bed. I have the V-8, and it has good power and spunk on the highway. When I hit the gas, the vehicle responds well. All in all, I like it quite a bit, but I'm learning to live with things I didn't think about before.

WOW what a truck/SUV

I traded a 2004 v-6 Mustang for a 2007 Sport Trac and man am I happy with this upgrade. I purchased the XLT 4x2 with not a lot of available options. I added the step rails and that was it. The ride quality is extremely impressive from previous years. This vehicle seems like a luxury vehicle more than an SUV/truck. I am extremely impressed with this vehicle and will have it for MANY years to come. Taking a year off from production of this truck really paid off. Kudos to your FORD for getting this one right!

A nice looking utility truck. A great improvement over previous years. Handles well and has a smooth ride. A nice touch is the new six speed tranny. Has more towing capacity than Honda rigeline and costs thousands less. I would rate this as a best buy.

I purchased my 2007 Sport Trac Limited Orange Metalic Frost in color about a month ago. It was used with about 100,000 miles but so far its been a great vehicle. I was very concerned about trading my Mustang for a Sport Trac but in the end I'm very happy with my decision. The ride is smooth, the seats comfortable, the proformance is excellent. Friends had a 2005 Sport Trac and the 2007 was overhauled and they say its a much nicer ride than theirs. If you're considering it, I say do it. You'll love it.
