Overall, TheCarConnection.com's editors find that the 2007 Ford Explorer offers some great features―if you’re willing to step up to one of the more luxurious trim levels.

In general, the different trim styles of the 2007 Ford Explorer stand out more than they might with another vehicle. Ford has put a lot of thought into differentiating between the various options, which, as Forbes Autos points out, are "XLT, Eddie Bauer, and Limited"―in that order.

The base-trim 2007 Ford Explorer XLT offers "cruise control, air-conditioning, a CD/MP3 stereo with an auxiliary input jack and full power accessories," according to Edmunds. In the Ford Explorer Limited trim, Cars.com declares, "heated front seats, a power passenger seat, dual-zone automatic temperature control and a six-CD player with MP3 capability are standard."

A number of reviewers note the many optional features in the 2007 Ford Explorer. Edmunds highlights the "rear-seat DVD entertainment" system, while ConsumerGuide points to the "power running boards and a heated windshield," both of which are new for 2007, and makes note of the optional second-row bucket seats, sunroof, rear obstacle detection, and power-adjustable pedals.

Autoblog describes the DVD and navigation systems as "above average." Reviewers like the touch-screen control, and comment that the Explorer's system is intuitive enough for most drivers to use easily. Furthermore, Autoblog notes, "the audio and nav functions do a good job of sharing the screen real estate without getting in each other's way." Stereo controls are on the top of the screen, but there are also redundant stereo controls on the steering wheel for those who prefer not to operate a push-button radio.

Conclusion

The base XLT comes with plenty of standard features, but be prepared to pay extra if you want the top tech features.

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.
