2020 Ford Explorer Cargo/Storage Volume

The 2020 Explorer provides ample cargo space for most families with above class-average storage volume. Because the rear row slides forward, the Explorer is able to maximize its cargo space without sacrificing the comfort of rear passengers at other times. Ford engineers made sure the cargo floor is wide and low with no lip, so it’s easy to load large items. As a family vehicle, the 2020 Ford Explorer wouldn’t be complete without plenty of small cubbies, door storage, and other pockets for easy stashing.
