The Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker, with its headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford has manufactured a variety of cars which includes SUVs, hatchback, sedans etc. To better fit American family needs, Ford now offers SUVs with 3rd row seating to accommodate more passengers. Their first 3rd row seating model was built in 2002 and since then, they have made tremendous changes and improvements. Ford Explorer has to be mentioned as we talk about Ford's SUVs with 3rd row seating. It is considered to be the one of the top ten 3 row SUVs in the states.

Here are some of the top reasons to consider a new Ford Explorer with 3rd row seating:

Extra seating capacity

Seating space is one the biggest advantages of SUVs over other vehicles. Ford's SUVs holds a space for up to seven passengers, which makes it similar to a van, but even more sporty. It can fit in nine passengers depending upon the upgrades we choose to pick. This type of seating arrangement is great for two families or one large family, also helps for people who practice carpooling. With vans providing more space, a driver would still pick these 3rd row seating SUV's models for its slick look and design.


Behind the third-row seat, Ford Explorer has one of the best cargo capacities with 21 cubic feet. For extra convenience, a feature of power-folding third-row seat is made available, as is a hands-free lift gate.

Towing capacity

Besides having room for cargo and seating area, these vehicles are pick for their towing ability. The larger size and powered engines helps to tow trailers and other heavier things which won't be possible if with a car. 

Vehicle handling

Even in bad weather or uneven roads, the driver can firmly handle these vehicles as they are heavier with respect to the weight of a car. Especially Ford offers all wheel drive options which is the popular choice amongst many people.

Efficient fueling option

The fuel efficient option is the drivers favorite choice, besides providing more space than a car, this option keeps them less worried about the gas mileage while using the vehicle as needed.

Vehicle safety

With increased handling comes increased safety. These SUV's are raised higher above the ground than most cars, which makes them able to drive over debris or small objects in the road more easily and sometimes with even minimal damage.

Additional horsepower

Talking of benefits, These SUVs have extra horsepower as compared to other types of vehicles. Off road or climbing a hill or getting out of a ditch, these extra horsepower works with the tires to get the vehicle where it needs to be. One of the basic reason why the people in rural areas prefer these type of vehicles.
