    I wouldn't worry about the year-end rebates. Incentives are different for each area but for the most part they did not really change after 1/2/07. Where the money comes from might be different but the totals are probably very close. For example, in my area (NE Ohio) prior to 1/3/07 there was a $500 cash back offer plus a $1000 year-end bonus. Beginning 1/3/07 there is now $1500 cash back. The total rebate has been $1500 almost from the beginning of production. They just keep shuffling the sources. Ford Credit rates have changed from time to time and they are actually better now than they were before 1/3/07. Again, in my area, they went from a low of 1.9% for 36 mons to 0.9% for 36. You cannot combine the cash back and low interest, you have to choose one or the other.
  • Left a post on the site you spoke of, to see where the Sport Trac is. The VIN is about 35 from yours.

    Those are some real good interest rates.

    Thanks for your help.

    You're welcome.
    Just out of curiosity, what color did you order?
    Mine is a 4x4 Limited V-8 in Alloy (Carbon) with the Dark Charcoal leather interior. Looks like ours were built about a day apart. Mine only has to travel from Kentucky to Ohio so I hope it gets here soon. Unfortunately, I think the plant is down again this week so I don't know how that might impact trucks built last week.
  • Sounds much like your Sport Trac, except color is Dark Stone and Tan Leather. Here's to hoping that shipping will take place even though production is down. Mine has to ship to Michigan.

    Thanks Again.
  • fsmmcsi,

    Hello from Norfolk, VA! I'm beating my head against a wall trying to find stereo wiring codes/diagrams for an '07 Explorer XLT. I will take delivery of one as a company vehicle, and would like to add a powered Bazooka tube. The sub accepts line level and speaker level (reccomended) inputs. Do you suppose the diagrams for the '06 are worth looking at? My hope is that the XLT is prewired for the optional Audiophile package and subwoofer. I suppose I could just root around the back for those wires and connect the sub rather easily. If not prewired, I could at least discover where the harness for the rear speakers is located, and tap into the correct wires. If all else fails, then it's time to open the dashboard!

    Any thoughts? Can you point me elsewhere? Is there a Chilton's out for the '07 that would help?

    It's comforting to have come across your post. At least now I'm on the right track. Thank you for your time.

    Andy

    My 2006 Explorer (not Sport-Trac) Eddie Bauer does not have the Audiophile system and did not come with wiring for the sub-woofer. Why don't you just order the wiring diagram manual?

    Hi,

    New to the forum. I take delivery of my new 2007 Sport Trac 4wd with the 4.6 engine on Wednesday. Test drove it today and loved the ride.

    Question. The dealer folded down the rear seat but it didn't appear to lay flat. He stated that it may have to slide forward further. Does the rear seat fold flat?

    I've read most of the forum inputs and find it amusing that the only thing I found difficult during the test drive was closing the front doors because of the location of the interior handles. This particular car has been on the lot since early summer. Then I read the forum and the Job 2 solution. Oh well, not a show stopper but you have to wonder who tested the ergonomics of that design decision?

    I'm excited to take delivery this week and will continue to rely on this forum's expertise to help me upgrade some items.

    THINKING ABOUT GETTING A SPORTS TRAC. BUT WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM REAL PEOPLE ABOUT ITS PERFORMANCE IN TOWN AND OFF ROAD CAPABILTIES. HOW IS THE GAS MILEAGE LIKE? WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT OF ITS PERFORMANCE AND CARE.

  • Got this off Motortrend...

    2008 Ford Sport Trac Adrenalin: A year after the second-generation Sport Trac is introduced, Ford will launched a high-performance SVT version dubbed Adrenalin. This special model variant gets a supercharged 4.6-liter 32-valve V-8, six-speed automatic, all-wheel-drive, and unlike the new SVT Shelby Mustang 500, independent rear suspension. The blown 4.6 makes 390 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque in the Explorer-based truck. SVT tunes the shocks and springs, and the Adrenalin gets larger front- and rear-stabilizer bars and 295/45R21 tires. SVT says the Adrenalin will match or better the last F-150 Lightning for performance. The last Lightning Motor Trend tested did 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds. It's scheduled for mid-2007 release.

    Hopefully, someone can confirm. It would also be nice to get some pricing information.

    The Adrenalin was dropped as part of the way forward plan.

    Mark.
  • Yes the '2007' Adrenalin was dropped. Most of the internet information concerns that model year. But this was the first time that '2008' was mentioned, and it was from Motortrend.

    Hello, I have a 2007 Sport Trac and started it up the other day to go to work and noticed the check engine light and Advance Trac light was on. I hooked up an ODB scanner and it said the engine temperature was reading high. When I popped the hood the first thing I saw was bread and beef jerky on the engine block!!!! I then noticed some critter droppings and finally the numerous amount of wire bundles that had been chewed through!!!! I can't believe this. It is covered under my comprehensive insurance but who's to say they won't come back? I have read that I will need to clean the engine with 50% pine oil and pressure washer. I am also concerned as to whether or not they may still be hiding in the vehicle vents or what not. I have began the rat removal process around my home. Has this ever happened to anyone and does anyone have some good information for me on this one? Oh, by the way, the company fixing the vehicle cannot determine why the Advance Trac light is on. They say that when they hook it up to the diagnostics it tells them that "trac light error due to external node" I'm sure it's probably some sensor wire that they just haven't noticed that the rats have dug into but if any of you have any knowledge of this please respond. Thanks!
