The following sections will give you a thorough outline of this SUV's cabin features and layout. So, there'll be no surprises when you decide to schedule your test drive!

Ford Explorer Interior Dimensions: Passenger and Cargo Space

Three-row SUVs like the Ford Explorer cater to large families given their ample interior space. Below is a list of some notable measurements that typically catch people's attention:

  • First Row Legroom: 43 inches
  • Second Row Legroom: 39 inches
  • Third Row Legroom: 32.2 inches
  • First Row Hip Room: 57.3 inches
  • Second Row Hip Room: 56.8 inches
  • Third Row Hip Room: 40.7 inches
  • Total Passenger Volume: 152.7 cubic feet

It's not just the passenger space that makes a good impression, it's also the cargo room, which can be adjusted to better fit your immediate needs.

For example, the cargo volume behind the third-row seats checks in at 18.2 cubic feet. If you fold those third-row seats down, you'll then have 47.9 cubic feet of room to work with. Lastly, there's the option to fold both the second-row and third-row seats down, opening up a whopping 87.8 cubic feet of space for cargo.

In-Cabin Technology

Technology is certainly a strong point for the Ford Explorer, and you'll find numerous systems in place throughout the cabin. The purpose of these cutting-edge features is to make your life easier.

So, for example, there's the Ford+Alexa system, which allows you to use Amazon Alexa in your car the same way you might use it at home. This is possible thanks to the Ford+Alexa app, which connects to the intuitive SYNC® 3 AppLink™ system in your SUV.

Another fascinating bit of technology is the FordPass™ Connect with Wi-Fi® hotspot. This setup gives you the ability to support up to ten devices at once. As for the app, you can use it to do a number of different things like receive updates on vehicle maintenance; compare gas prices at nearby stations; and find, reserve, and pay for parking spots in advance.
