1. 2013 Ford Taurus
And here it is, the most spacious schlepper in AutoGuide’s Battle of the Boots. Livery drivers rejoice, Ford’s raging bull takes top honors with more than 20 cubic feet of volume in its aft cargo hold.
At 112 inches the car’s wheelbase is the third longest in this competition, falling behind the lanky Chrysler twins and Hyundai’s Genesis. Luggage capacity must have been a top priority for engineers because when it comes to interior space the Taurus is one of the smaller cars in this comparison.

What it lacks in cabin room though, it more than makes up for with choice. Buyers have three engines to pick from and can even opt for all-wheel drive. The mainstream powerplant is a 3.5-liter V6 delivering 288 horsepower. Economy-minded shoppers can spend a little more up front to save some cash at the gas pump. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine is optional and delivers up to 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Also, driving enthusiasts can go with the SHO, which offers a 365 horsepower twin-turbocharged V6.
But at the end of the day cargo capacity is what this Top 10 list is all about, and the Ford Taurus is our junk-in-the-trunk champ.
