2007 Ford F150 Super Cab Review

By

If Ford does one thing better than building tough trucks, it's selling them. Rising fuel prices and a move toward smaller vehicles have forced the company to revise its F-150 lineup by offering more features and options with an aggressive new pricing strategy. Determined to keep the F-150 America's best selling pickup, Ford continues to offer a dizzying array of configurations (a total of 60 in all) as well as a new 5.4-liter V8 Flex Fuel engine that can run on E85, a blend of 85-percent ethanol and 15-percent gasoline. Tough competition from Dodge, as well as new lines from GMC and Chevrolet, will keep the fire under the F-150's tires, which could very well translate into some great deals for the savvy consumer.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're a pickup-truck kind of person to begin with, but your spouse is not, this truck could very well win him or her over. Bold colors, outrageous trim packages, a lavish interior and the all-American big Blue Oval should win thumbs-up approval.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you like your trucks rough, loud and shaky, this one won't cut it. On a serious note, the F-150 cannot claim the most horsepower or torque in its class, an important bragging right for some truck owners. Safety-conscious consumers won't care for the lack of side-impact and side-curtain airbags.

What's Significant About This Car?

The FX2 Sport Package is now available on two-wheel-drive SuperCab and SuperCrew XLT models, while an auxiliary audio input jack becomes standard on STX, XLT, FX and Lariat trims. New options this year include SIRIUS Satellite Radio, a DVD-based navigation system and six new colors. A new tire pressure monitoring system is standard across the line, as is a five-year/60,000 mile warranty.

Driving the F150 Super Cab

Driving Impressions Power is the name of the game when it comes to full-size trucks, and here Ford has made some significant advances. The Triton 5.4-liter V8 features a three-valve-per-cylinder design and...

variable cam timing to generate 300 horsepower and a healthy 365 pound-feet of torque. A beefed-up version of the 4R75E automatic transmission has been assigned to handle the engine's added muscle. Gone are the old power steering system and torsion bar front suspension; replacing them are a modern rack-and-pinion steering and front coil-over-shock suspension. The combination of these features makes these the best-handling, best-riding F-150s to ever leave a Ford factory. If you've driven the older models (2004 or prior), you'll be duly impressed by the dead-on steering feel and straight-line tracking of today's F-150s.

DVD System Screen Adjustment
The F-150's optional overhead rail system with DVD entertainment system allows you to adjust screen distance.

Small Rear Door
Regular Cab models have a small rear door to help load items behind the back seat.

2007 Ford F150 Super Cab Details
Interior

The F-150's interior is as close to car-like as you'll find in any pickup. Not only is the new F-150 better-looking inside, it's also more quiet, safe and spacious. The dash and interior design on the base models look good enough, but the addition of leather, wood, chrome and center console-mounted shifter found on the high-end models combine to raise the bar on the plush pickup concept. Seating is firm and upright, and SuperCrew models feature lots of rear legroom and amenities such as DVD-entertainment and power windows.

Exterior

The F-150 carries on for 2007 with only minor exterior upgrades. The recently redesigned shapely Ford body, egg-crate grille and Blue Oval badging remain intact, surrounded by some new chrome trim and a crop of fresh new colors. The F-150's silhouette is easy to spot, thanks to its tall bed wall (about two inches taller than the previous generation F-150). Though it looks different, some may find the tall bed walls make it difficult to reach a toolbox from the side of the truck. The Regular Cab features a set of small, rear-hinged doors that allow easy access to the narrow space behind the front seat. Those who like to have as much fresh air in the cabin as possible will appreciate the SuperCab's optional rear roll-down windows, a first in this segment.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The base F-150 has a 202-horsepower V6, five-speed manual transmission, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), 26-gallon fuel tank, AM/FM stereo, dual side mirrors, vinyl split-bench seat, tilt wheel, power steering, locking tailgate and 17-inch steel wheels.

Optional Equipment

The F-150 offers numerous trim levels, engine choices and bed and cab lengths. Notable options include a 300-horsepower 5.4-liter Triton V8, power seats, power windows, power locks, remote entry, keypad unlocking system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, AM/FM stereo with six-disc CD changer, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, leather seats, all-wheel drive, DVD navigation, trailer and towing packages, power sliding rear window, cruise control, power moonroof, Reverse Sensing System, limited-slip differential, 35-gallon fuel tank, mechanical or automatic shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, power adjustable pedals and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Under the Hood

Base Regular Cab models are powered by a tepid but fuel-efficient (for a big truck) V6. We don't recommend this engine for towing or hauling heavy loads. The 4.6-liter engine might save you some money, but it, too, seems to lack the punch this truck deserves. We prefer the 300-horsepower 5.4-liter V8, which has the power to move, haul and tow that's befitting to this truck's can-do image.

4.2-liter V6
202 horsepower @ 4350 rpm
260 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3750 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 15/20 (manual), 16/20 (automatic)

248 horsepower @ 4750 rpm
294 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 16/20 (2WD), 14/18 (4WD)

5.4-liter V8
300 horsepower @ 5000 rpm
365 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3750 rpm

"Bought this truck in 2009. I have not had a single day when I was disappointed in it's performance. The amount of repairs to this have been almost nil. At 80000 miles, I replaced the plugs as well as the coil boots and the front shocks as a preventative measure. The ride on this truck is as tight today as it was in 2009. It is still running as strong and quiet as well. there are just a few minor glitches like a slight snapping sound in the tailgate hinge and a little bit of rust on the cross rails under the bed of the truck. This is my 4th Ford truck, no need for #5 yet. By the way, the radio in the FX4 model will blow you out of the truck with its' massive woofer under the back seat."

"Still get compliments on its look even though its 7 years old. Had to give a 5/10 reliability rating because had to have transmission replaced at 50K but NO other problems. This truck drives like car and still has a smooth ride. I'm keeping it until it falls apart."
