2007 Ford F-150 Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Ford redesigned its F-150 pickup truck for 2004 by giving it a new look, a wider track and new rack-and-pinion steering. For 2007, little has changed beyond the addition of options and packages.

Regular-cab, SuperCab and SuperCrew body styles are offered. Five trim levels are available: workhorse XL, youth-oriented STX, mainstream XLT, offroad FX4 and luxurious Lariat.

Ford's F-150 trucks have a half-ton rating. Heavier-duty F-250 and F-350 pickups are listed separately in the Cars.com Research section.

Exterior
Some F-150 styling touches were borrowed from the Mighty F-350 Tonka concept truck. Stepped-design side windows improve mirror visibility and enhance the tough-truck look.

F-150 grilles are trapezoidal. A chrome surround and honeycomb insert go on the Lariat trim level. Both regular and SuperCab (extended-cab) pickups can have a 6.5- or 8-foot cargo bed. Short beds are available with flared fenders, called Flareside; otherwise, the bed is a slab-sided (Styleside) design. SuperCab models can have a shorter, 5.5-foot cargo bed.

Regular cabs and SuperCabs have narrow rear-hinged back doors — called access panels — on both sides. They can't be opened unless the front doors are open. A power sliding rear window is offered. Either 17- or 18-inch wheels are installed.


Interior
Ford says it enhanced both the comfort and support of the F-150's seats for 2007. The automaker also added an optional DVD-based navigation system.

Either a 40/20/40-split three-place bench seat or optional dual captain's chairs can be installed in front. The SuperCab adds a three-place rear seat.

Interior layouts vary according to the series. A full-length floor-mounted console with a shift lever is available. At the lower end of the price scale, the XL has hose-out rubber floormats in a plainer interior with a column-mounted gearshift. On SuperCab and SuperCrew versions, a modular overhead rail system can hold a DVD player and other components.


Under the Hood
For 2007, a new flexible fuel version of the 5.4-liter V-8 engine that can run on E85 is optional. The base F-150 engine is a 202-horsepower, 4.2-liter V-6. Two V-8s are available: a 231-hp 4.6-liter and a 300-hp 5.4-liter.

A four-speed automatic transmission is standard with V-8 power, but V-6 models can team with a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual. Four-wheel-drive models have a floor-mounted transfer-case lever that permits shifting in and out of 4WD High on the move. A dashboard switch activates an optional, electrically engaged transfer case.


Safety
Four-wheel antilock brakes and front seat belt pretensioners are standard. Dual-stage front airbags work with an occupant classification system sensor.

Driving Impressions
Significantly more substantial than its pre-2004 predecessor, the F-150 has a heavier, more solid feel. The suspensions react more positively to pavement flaws by rebounding rapidly and only as far as necessary. They recover quickly from bumps. Imperfect surfaces can produce quite a bit of body motion, though it's not bad for a truck.

The 5.4-liter V-8 produces quicker acceleration than the 4.6-liter, though neither engine is phenomenal. Even with the larger engine, the F-150 takes a while to really get rolling — but when it does, it feels pretty powerful. Interiors are roomy, but the A-pillar grab handles aren't helpful to every rider.


F-150 SuperCrew
SuperCab and SuperCrew models with the Styleside box can be equipped with an FX2 Sport Package in 2007. The package offers a body-colored grille surround, 18-inch wheels (with 20-inchers optional), fog lamps and unique captain's chairs with a center console and floor-mounted shifter, among other appearance touches.

SuperCrew versions of the F-150 full-size pickup have four conventional, front-hinged doors like those on passenger cars. Rear occupants sit on a three-place bench seat. The F-150 SuperCrew has only been offered with a 5.5-foot cargo bed, but a 6.5-foot bed will be available later in the 2006 model year.

The SuperCrew can be equipped with either a 231-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 or a 300-hp, 5.4-liter V-8. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard. A DVD player is optional. A King Ranch version, which includes Casta�o leather upholstery and special badging, is available for the Lariat SuperCrew model. Back to top

Smooth ride, good power, reliable truck

by mjaredyates from Arlington, TX on November 28, 2017

This is my first Ford truck and I hate that I’ve been driving for 25 years and have missed out on driving a Ford. Will be a Ford truck owner for life now.
