Versatile Storage in the 2014 Ford Explorer
In addition to unmatched power and efficiency, the Ford Explorer offers a number of storage options that help to make it one of the most versatile seven-passenger SUVs currently on the market. When all three rows of seats are upright, the Explorer provides 21 cubic feet of space behind the third row. However, when all of the split-folding rear seatbacks are collapsed, the Explorer provides just over 80 cubic feet of flat storage space which makes it easy to fit just about anything that you can imagine. Accessing all of that space has never been easier, either. The third row of seats are power folding, meaning they can be collapsed with just the touch of a button. If all of the seats are occupied, there is a small in-floor cargo area that is perfect for additional storage or for keeping valuable items out of sight.
