Which Fords Can Fit the Most Car Seats

Ford Cars
When thinking about your next family vehicle there are definitely some key factors to consider. How much cargo space is there? Can it seat up to seven – heck even eight? What kind of safety assist features come standard? While these are all big concerns, if you’re in a stage where your children are still in car seats, choosing a Ford vehicle that fits your car seat requirements is one feature that might get overlooked. Hillsboro Ford is here to help narrow down the best Ford vehicles that can fit the most car seats, whether you’ve got newborn triplets on the way, sticky-faced toddlers who need more room to express themselves, or need to save space for the addition of one more little one – you know, just in case.

Ford Edge

One of the great things about the Ford Edge is that it has a huge amount of cargo space, which is just what’s needed when you have kids. The Ford Edge also features three anchors and two lower tether systems in the second row and has a good amount of legroom in the back. It’s compact enough for city driving while offering your family the space you need to grow comfortably.

Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer is a mid-size SUV that can seat up to seven people. The second row is a 40/60 split with two full car seat anchors and tethers as well as a third row which is a 50/50 split with one full anchor with a tether as well allowing up to 3 car seats to be installed for both rear and forward-facing car seats. It’s also a seriously rugged SUV with solid towing power, so if you’re planning on head out for an East Coast adventure with the whole family, the Explorer is a great option.
Room And Comfort

Ford Expedition

As a full-size SUV, the Ford Expedition is available with seven or eight seats with all of the seats in the second and third-row equipped with anchors and lower tethers. The third row is also the largest of any SUV on the market and with the car seat safe tilt available for the second row, getting in and out of the third row is easy. Truck-like towing power, loads of luxury features, and space galore make the Expedition an absolute chariot for big families.


Ford F-150

As one of the most popular trucks on the market, the Ford F-150 features a roomy, modern cabin and top safety ratings. This makes it a great option for families who are looking for a vehicle that can accommodate up to two car seats. Don’t let the word “pickup truck” fool you: the F-150 has as much room inside the cabin as many midsize sedans on the road, plus the elevated seats make latching and unlatching the kids a lot easier on your back.

Child Proof

Child Tether LATCH System

The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system was developed to make it easier to correctly install child safety seats without using seat belts. Check out this helpful video to learn how to attach and adjust a child seat to the child tether LATCH system in your vehicle with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.
