How long is a Ford Excursion?

The Ford Excursion was a full-size SUV produced from 1999 to 2005 with a length of 226.7 inches across all trims and models.
With that length and a curb weight of 7,230 to 7,688 pounds, the Ford Excursion is both the longest and heaviest SUV in mass production history. Don’t be surprised if it feels like you’re driving a miniature tank—the Excursion could probably pass for one.
So what exactly does a length like that mean for this SUV. Here’s what the Ford Excursion’s extra-long length allows for in terms of seating and cargo space


The Ford Excursion SUV came with three rows of seating for a maximum of nine passengers. All seating came with plenty of space—40 to 41 inches of legroom and headroom across all three rows!


When all three rows are in use, the Ford Excursion has a cargo space of 48 cubic feet. However, if you remove the third row and fold the second row of seats, that cargo capacity jumps to a maximum of 146.4 cubic feet. The maximum cargo space is long and wide enough to fit 4’x8’ sheets of plywood nicely.

Will your Ford Excursion fit in your garage?

Break out that measuring tape and measure your garage to see if your behemoth Ford Excursion can fit. If you’re moving to a new place and don’t have a chance to check the garage size, don’t sweat it. Jerry’s got some averages to give you some peace of mind, and we’ll even do some of the math for you!
The Ford excursion’s 226.7 inches is equivalent to roughly 18.9 feet of length. The average garage is between 20 and 24 feet deep. Unless you’re moving into a place with an irregularly small garage, you’ll likely be able to fit your Ford Excursion in the new digs! However, the space may get a little cramped from front to back.
Single-car garages have an average width of at least 12 feet, and the Ford Excursion is 79.9 inches (or 6.7 feet) wide. You should have a good amount of space along the side for other storage needs like a push lawn mower, trash can, and so on.
