When it comes to interior space, the 2017 Ford Explorer knows just how to please. Not only does this year's model offer seating for up to 7 passengers, but also boasting a full 151.7 cubic-feet of passenger volume, the 2017 Ford Explorer offers all of the space that you need to get going. As for the Toyota Highlander? Its interior isn't nearly as spacious.


Of course, a wealth of passenger space isn't all that the 2017 Ford Explorer has to offer new car shoppers. Opt for this year's model, and you'll find yourself enjoying an impressive 43.8 cubic-feet of cargo space behind its third row. Unfortunately for Toyota shoppers, the Highlander is only able to provide 42.3 cubic-feet behind the third row.

Opt for the 2017 Ford Explorer, and you'll find yourself enjoying tech-savvy features such as the SYNC 3 infotainment system. Offering features such as seamless smartphone integration, a multicolor touchscreen display, and premium navigation, you can't go wrong when opting for this system. Unfortunately, for Toyota shoppers, SYNC 3 is exclusive to the new Ford lineup.
