Small-Item Storage Solutions

Not everything that will be hauled inside the 2023 Ford Explorer will require seats to be folded down. Most of the time, people simply need a way to organize small items so they don’t roll around the vehicle and create a mess. The SUV’s Cargo Area Management system provides small cubbies throughout the passenger cabin to hold these items in place. Also, wet and/or muddy items can be held on a reversible load floor featuring a plastic bed.
