2007 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Owned this truck for almost a year now, and am overall very impressed. The ride is amazing for an SUV this size, the power for the v6 is decent, plenty of power for everyday driving or on the highway. The ride is very smooth even on cruise control at 80-85. The fuel economy for most people's driving habits is about 15 around town and 19-20 highway. If you drive fuel consciously, I am able to get 17 around town and 22 highway. Very roomy, third row can fit two grown adults with ease. Plenty of cargo space, great for towing, better than average stock sound system. Good looking truck inside and out. I highly recommend this truck!


Best Features

Keyless entry Smooth Ride Sound System Auxiliary input jack Very nice looking dash and gauges


Worst Features

Better fuel economy USB input

2007 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Second Explorer I've owned and by far the better of the two. Had an 2004 v-8 SSV (special services vehicle) police package that we bought used. Loved the big police interceptor, but the 2007 V- 6 feels just as strong. love the power pedal adjuster ( so all the wife has to do is press the button and move the pedals instead of moving my seat and forgetting to put it back) love where they moved the 4wd buttons instead of where they were by the radio and I love the positioning of the gear shifter. Overall A+++ job Ford.


Best Features

Power pedal adjuster, new gear shifter, how quiet it is, even on the interstate


Worst Features

a little better MPG would be nice. '04 SSV Police package got around 20 city/26 highway, but still I average 19 highway now and still climbing.

2007 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Not impressed. Didn't like it after the first month and I was stuck in a lease. When is below 40 deg. the ESC actives on turns even when the roads are dry. Especially frustrating while trying to accelerate on a cloverleaf on-ramp on to highway. The 9V power supply is in a bad spot, near the center console. Radar and GPS power cords have to stretch from the console to the dash. No Ash tray/trash. Eddie Bauer edition doesn't come with steering wheel audio controls


Best Features

Keyless entry


Worst Features

Move the 9V power supply under the dash.
