Model News

The Explorer underwent a full redesign for 2006. With the 2007 version, Ford has eliminated the XLS trim level and now only offers XLT, Eddie Bauer, and Limited configurations. Side curtain airbags have been made standard on the Eddie Bauer and Limited trim levels, and all trim levels now feature an audio input jack.

On the XLT, some equipment that was standard in 2006 has been made optional for 2007, including the power driver seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, security approach lamps, illuminated visors, overhead console, and rear map light. For 2007, the Limited adds such standard equipment as auxiliary rear air conditioning, a third row seat, reverse sensing capability, and 18" aluminum wheels.

As in years past, the Explorer's body is a traditional SUV, while the Explorer Sport Trac trades the enclosed rear cargo area for an open bed. The Sport Trac is available in all the same trims as the Explorer, with the exception of the Eddie Bauer line.

A new Ironman option package is available for the XLTs, offering several cosmetic changes--including a unique Orange Frost paint--for an appropriately athletic look.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Explorer is a traditional body-on-frame SUV, which makes it attractive to buyers in the market for a mid-sized SUV with towing and off-road capability. Safety equipment, including standard stability control with a rollover sensor, will appeal to the family haulers. Another plus for those with large broods is the availability of manual- or power-folding third-row seating.

Base prices on all trim levels are down from 2006, including the high-end 4WD Limited V8, which has more standard equipment than the 2006 version.


Pros

Generous standard safety equipment; quiet cabin; good balance of around-town driving, towing, and off-road capabilities.


Model Highlights

Following the 2006 redesign, the 2007 Explorer is well positioned to compete against other truck- or car-based mid-sized SUVs. The body-on-frame construction will please those in need of towing capacity, while the independent rear suspension and stiffer frame enhance handling on paved surfaces. Optional third-row seating on all trim levels expands utility for larger families. For those with the occasional boat or basketball-team-sized contingent of kids (or both) who choose not to pop for a large SUV, the mid-sized Explorer must be considered.

The standard V6 engine produces 210 horsepower while the optional V8 cranks out 292 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox, which is a nice segment-leading plus.

At less than $26,000, the base 2WD V6 XLT offers impressive standard equipment for the price, including air conditioning, fog lamps, stability control, aluminum wheels, anti-lock brakes, privacy glass, remote keyless entry, side seat air bags, and more. Options available on all styles include a power moonroof, navigation system, and heated windshield, so even the XLT can be generously loaded.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
