Did you know that 60% of all SUVs sold in the US have three rows? Whether you’re a family of 6 or enjoy packing up your friends for frequent road trips to Lake Massasecum, a three-row SUV is certain to come in handy. With enough seating for typically 7 to 8 passengers, ample leg and headroom, not to mention enough cargo space for all your camping gear, three-row Ford SUVs are the perfect travel companion for life in New Hampshire. Let’s explore our top picks for three-row SUVs from Ford!
Ford Explorer – Luxury and Utility
The Ford Explorer has long been the standard-bearer for the three-row SUV class. Though it has been redesigned several times, the Ford Explorer has maintained much of its iconic look. Now, it offers more power, efficiency, and interior comfort than ever before.
The Ford Explorer is perfect for Hillsboro families who want a large, comfortable interior, three rows of seating, and the ability to tow more than many competitors. The new Ford Explorer is the only vehicle in its class that comes standard with RWD, which improves towing performance and handling if you happen to be bringing a travel trailer along with you on your next adventure. If you’re shopping for an SUV or crossover with lots of room and a luxurious design, the Ford Explorer should be at the top of your list to test drive.
Ford Expedition - The Ultimate Family SUV
If you’re looking for expansive interior space as well as superior power, there’s no better choice than the Ford Expedition. This full-sized SUV is more than capable when towing and going off-road than its crossover counterparts. Plus, it’s fun to drive on the open road. Inside you’ll see a spacious cabin with ample storage. The new generation of Expedition’s large interior is also complemented by large windows and a distinctly upscale design.
The Expedition is particularly great for New Hampshire families who frequently venture into the outdoors and who are likely to tow a large trailer or boat. And with comfortable seating for eight in its three rows, the Ford Expedition excels as both a family hauler and road-tripper.
Ford Flex – And Oldie, But Roomy Goody
While Ford discontinued this model in 2019, there are still some amazing Flex options on the used car market. Not to mention, buying a used Flex is a great way to drive off in one of these outstanding vehicles without paying the price of a new car. Its spacious interior has 83 cubic feet of cargo room, so this is a great option for families that need a car that can fit everything from camping equipment to sports gear. As the smallest of Ford’s vehicles with three rows of seats, the Flex is a great choice if you need to maximize seating capacity but don’t want a car with a full-sized profile.
Bonus: Ford Transit
While not technically a three-row SUV, if you need to haul a lot of people, the Ford Transit van may be a good option to consider. The Transit van can have up to 5 rows and fit up to 15 passengers on select models. All Transit passenger vans have at least four rows as standard with room for at least ten passengers, making it the perfect road trip vehicle. You can also load up a variety of gear and equipment with the top-mounted rails that can be customized for your exact needs.
