When I was in high school there was a cheer given after a player made the first of two free throws. It went, “We want another, just like the other one, just like the one before.” I was reminded of this when I left for California to test-drive the all-new 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. I assumed it was a similar, but updated version of its predecessor, first produced in 2001.


I couldn’t have been more mistaken. From the B-pillar forward, the ’07 Sport Trac is identical to the 2006 Ford Explorer, meaning it shares the same body structure down to the chrome-finished three-bar grille. From the B-pillar back, it’s a pickup truck, which means the Sport Trac is intent on keeping the shoppers that Honda’s Ridgeline has in its gunsights.


Growing appeal


Sharing pieces with the four-door Explorer also means the new Sport Trac has grown in size. Its wheelbase of 130.5 inches is 4.5 inches longer than the previous Sport Trac (and 16.8 inches longer than the ’06 Explorer — credit the truck bed). Overall length is 210.2 inches, overall height is 72.5 inches and overall width is 73.7 inches.


Like the Explorer, the Sport Trac offers up a 60/40 rear split-seat. And unlike some four-door pickups this one actually can seat a total of five, comfortably. Front headroom is 39.8 inches while the rear is 38.5 inches. Front-seat legroom is 42.4 inches and rear legroom is 36.9.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
