Hi all, been a while I passed by!
Been a while I wanted to do this and today's the day!
Pulled out my measuring tape and mapped my trunk.

Hatch door opening:
  • 40" at the 'top', 26" from bottom
  • 46" where it starts to get narrow, 15" from bottom
  • 46-1/2" at the widest, 2" from the bottom
Little space behind raised 3rd row:
  • 9" deep by 14" by 40" wide
  • 20" seat width
Distance from the door:
There is about 1" variation front the middle of the door opening and the corner, all measurements are front the corner
  • 18" to third row raised
  • 50" to second row raised
  • 73" to end of second row lowered
  • 78" to back of driver seat (Being tall, it is back almost all the way)
  • 93" to back of passager seat, fully forward, tilted forward (No one can think of sitting!)
  • 100" between the 2 seats up to the end of the center console
    • 9" space between front row seats
  • 112" up to the front console (over shifter)
  • 139" up to the windshield
Width:
  • 40-1/2" between wheel "well"
  • 56" between the rear doors
  • 25" on the back on the 60% seat
  • 14-1/2" on the back of the 40% seat
Second-row info:
  • 11" between seat and center console (foot)
  • 43" door height, at the greatest
  • 33" door width, at the greatest

Yours to translate, did my mechanical degree using Imperial.
I think we all likely took measurements etc. in Imperial in school, but that was a long time ago, and most of the modern world uses the metric system. :)

There is about 25cm variation front the middle of the door opening and the corner, all measurements are front the corner
  • 45.7cm to third row raised
  • 127cm to second row raised
  • 185.5cm to end of second row lowered
  • 198cm to back of driver seat (Being tall, it is back almost all the way)
  • 236.25cm to back of passager seat, fully forward, tilted forward (No one can think of sitting!)

Architects work in metric, construction workers work in imperial (at least the plan from my house, 10years ago... that is a generation ago, might have changed!?!?)

Not a deal breaker, but the 46 inch width has been my biggest disappointment. It would have been nice to be able to haul a 4'x8' sheet of plywood

That and the water pump

46 is the door, but it is 40" between wheel well.
Was trying to build some kind of angular rack to put the sheet at angle as it could fit. But anyway, it would not be long enough.
Gratefully, there is the roof.

That's what I thought Ford did, but the other day when I was installing a new replacement window motor in my 98 Ex, some of the bolts were 6mm, and unexpectedly, another factory stock bolt was 7/16". (Still have my SAE sockets, from when I had my '70s Mopars). Imperial system far from dead in the USA for many applications. Now, of course, want to measure the same spaces in my 98 to see if they differ from the '16 model. Might want to haul plywood some day...
