Top 3 Ford Vehicles with the Most Seating
Haul Your Whole Crew Easily in a New 2021 Ford from Zeck Ford in Leavenworth, Kansas
Having a family, a pack of pets, or lots of gear to haul means you’ve long ago abandoned the dream of driving a small sports car and instead focus your attention on vehicles with the most seating when it’s time to buy one of the best Ford vehicles.
For the most seating capacity – or the roomiest interior when the seats are folded down or removed – choose a large Ford SUV with third-row seats and ask to test drive these top three Ford vehicles when you visit Zeck Ford in Leavenworth, Kansas.
Test Drive the 2021 Ford Explorer
Start your new vehicle search with the updated 2021 Ford Explorer, a mid-size SUV with three rows of seats and lots of interior features to entertain all your passengers. Although the 2020 model year was newly redesigned, Ford made some changes to the 2021 edition.
Not only does this SUV seat up to seven passengers comfortably and up to four car seats, but new features are available in several of the trimlines. Heated seats are now standard on the XLT, with a heated steering wheel as an option. Front seat passengers will enjoy an eight-way power-adjustable seat on the Limited, ST, and Platinum models. A new Sport Appearance package on the XLT trim includes 20-inch aluminum wheels, mesh grille, lower-body cladding, dual exhaust outlets, faux skid plates, and more. You’ll also love the optional cargo organization on the XLT, Limited, and ST models, or standard with the Platinum trim.
Passengers in the third row of seating can manually adjust sunshades to keep comfortable – a great feature for traveling with infants and other small children. If it’s gear you’re looking to haul, you can fit 31 suitcases in the back of the Explorer with the seats folded down – the equivalent of luggage for a weekend trip for an entire high school class!
Stretch Out in the 2021 Ford Expedition
Need even more room in the third row of seating? There’s a Ford SUV for that. Consider the Ford Expedition XLT! With three rows of seating for up to eight passengers and three-zone climate control, everyone stays comfortable, no matter where they’re sitting.
Even with every seat occupied, the Expedition XLT has more than 18 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row. Car and Driver reports that few SUVs are as spacious and comfortable as the Expedition, so it’s a smart choice for carrying your family from point A to point B. Powered by a twin-turbo V6 engine and a 10-speed automatic transmission, you might want to upgrade to four-wheel drive from rear-wheel drive – and that’s available on any trim level!
As a bonus, the Expedition has a great towing capacity for long weekends at the lake (up to 9,300 pounds), 15 cupholders, and a nice infotainment system with a navigation option, in case you need to hand over your cell phone to help keep a child quiet with games and movies on a long road trip.
For this model year, the base trim of the Ford Expedition has just two rows of seating, so before test driving be sure you’re starting with the XLT trim level to see an SUV with the seating you need.
Go Big with the 2021 Ford Expedition Max
Even larger than the Expedition is the Expedition Max. These two large SUVs have a lot of features in common, although the Max can tow 300 pounds less than its slightly smaller brother. The two share most standard features, so you don’t have to compromise on those when you choose the larger version. The Platinum offers the most bells and whistles.
The Expedition Max adds nearly 12 inches to the length of the SUV and an additional 15 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third row of seats. The Max seats up to eight passengers, and has five LATCH seats for car seats to keep your little ones safe. Seat depth of the rear seats are worth noting; some mommy bloggers have noted they are deeper than the Expedition Max’s competition, which makes installing and securing car seats a whole lot easier.
