Ford Explorer Cargo Dimensions & Space

The Ford Explorer offers a spacious cabin equipped with 151.5 cubic feet for the seven passengers over three rows of seating. The second row features the 60/40 split bench, while the third row includes the 50/50 split bench. Both rows can be partially folded to make room for longer materials, such as fishing rods or camping equipment. However, these rows can also be completely folded flat to add more space to the Ford Explorer cargo dimensions.

  • The Ford Explorer offers 21 cubic feet of cargo space when the second and third rows are upright and in place.
  • When the third row is folded down, the Ford Explorer cargo space expands to 43.9 cubic feet.
  • The Ford Explorer offers 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space when both the second and third row are folded flat, but it drops the passenger seating to two.

Cargo Space Enables Great Towing Capacity

You've just learned how the Explorer cargo dimensions and space can be expanded when you fold down the rear seats; however, it limits your passenger capacity. If you've got a lot of materials to bring on your trip and you need all the seating upright for your passengers, you can easily bring the cargo along by towing it. The Explorer offers a range of engine selections that offer an impressive performance and ability to tow materials.

  • The base level 3.5L V6 engine produces 290 horsepower, 255 lb-ft of torque, and can tow 2,000 pounds, or 5,000 pounds with the Class III Trailer Tow Package and weigh-distributing hitch.
  • The 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine can deliver 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque while towing 2,000 pounds, or 3,000 pounds with the Class II Trailer Towing Package.
  • The 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 produces 365 horsepower, 350 lb-ft of torque, and can tow 5,000 pounds with the Class III Trailer Tow Package and weight-distributing hitch.
