The 2017 Ford Explorer Interior Makes Room for Growing Families

2017 Ford Explorer Platinum third-row seat

The 2017 Ford Explorer offers a spacious, quiet, and feature-packed interior, with higher trim levels indulging drivers with the downright luxurious. Combining three rows of seating with premium materials and inviting design style, the Ford Explorer perfectly encapsulates the driving motivation of the modern SUV; it’s family-friendly, thoroughly engaging, and feels like a home away from home.

The three-row SUV has somewhat eclipsed the popularity of the minivan, and the new Explorer demonstrates why. Three rows of seating provide more than enough room to take seven passengers in total comfort, and the vehicle’s long and wide-opening doors make entering and exiting a snap. For easier third-row access and roomy second-row accommodations, you can even opt for second-row captain’s chairs.

And the Ford Explorer’s generous passenger space doesn’t diminish its cargo-carrying ability. In fact, you’ll find up to:

  • 21 cubic feet behind the third-row seats
  • 43.9 cubic feet behind the second-row seats
  • 81.7 cubic feet behind the first-row seats


The expansive interior dimensions of the 2017 Ford Explorer excels when it comes to practicality, but what truly strikes drivers is the level of comfort, with standard and available fittings including:

  • 10-Way Power Driver’s Seat with Power Lumbar Support
  • Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Heated Steering Wheel
  • Heated and Cooled Front Seats

To push interior comfort even further, think about adopting the indulgent interior amenities of the Platinum trim. Real wood along the steering wheel casts an upscale atmosphere, and seats are upholstered with unique Nirvana leather and perforated and quilted inserts in either Ceramic and Ebony. A dual-panel moonroof extends above you to flood the interior with warm natural light, and a 500-watt Sony audio system can fill your cabin with rich and immersive sound.
