2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac (Not For Sale)
The 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac combines attributes of the best-selling Ford Explorer and best-selling Ford F-150. The Sport Trac is new from the ground up, including its innovative cargo box with tiered storage and a trio of integrated storage bins, complete with drain plugs. The all-new 2007 Sport Trac delivers all of the multi-functional character of the original, and does it better than ever.
contemporary new look, which blends tough truck exterior cues also found on the new 2006 Explorer and F-150 pickup. Including the standard chrome-finished grille, powerdome aluminum hood, and pronounced wheel arches.
Inside the box are three integrated cargo bins designed to maximize cargo-carrying ability and contribute to Sport Trac′s versatility. The bins are recessed into the bed floor (two six-pack-sized bins in the right and left rear of the box and one large bin that runs the width of the box) are equipped with weather-resistant lids and removable drain plugs for storing wet gear or ice.
An available tubular aluminum cargo cage acts as a cargo divider or can be swung out as a bed extender for extra storage capacity when the tailgate is lowered. An optional, locking hard tonneau cover keeps gear secure from the weather and would-be thieves.
Sport-designed seat styles and standard Tuflor™ rubber floor covering are designed for tough utility, allowing owners to wash out mud and grime with relative ease.
When the weather turns cold, Sport Trac offers the segment’s only heated windshield, using micro-wires embedded in the glass, which helps prevent fogging and speeds up de-icing.
Unique interior door-release handles are another innovation found in the interior, ergonomically designed to the shape of the human hand at rest. Sport Trac features a new console-mounted gear selector designed after that of the F-150 pickup.
The 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac showcases Ford Motor Company’s philosophy that engine employing advanced technologies can improve both performance and the environment. A new 3-valve V-8 engine option delivering 292 hp and an upgraded V-6 that produces less smog-forming emissions than a Honda Accord Hybrid.
Either engine can be equipped with the Sport Trac’s advanced Control Trac® four-wheel-drive system. Unlike less-sophisticated systems, Control Trac® features an automatic torque-split, which automatically transfers power to the front wheels as the rear wheels begin to loose traction. This increases safety and security without compromising fuel economy or NVH. In addition, the Control Trac® system features a torque-multiplying gear set in the transfer case for off-road applications that require extra power including deep sand, steep grades, and towing a boat trail

Sport Trac’s agile handling and powerful brakes provide an added measure of safety and security during emergency maneuvers.
