Ford Escape rental car - how much luggage space?

My DH, DD(10),DS(2) and myself are flying into Tampa. We'll rent from Budget and drive to the World! I'm trying to figure out how many pieces of luggage the rental will hold. We'll also have a stroller, and no matter how much I try to conserve, we seem to have at least one med. size suitcase each.
Does anyone have experience with this mid size SUV? How much space is there in the rear for storage?
10 days left before we get to go!!!!

Re: Ford Escape rental car - how much luggage space?

My BIl has an Escape and I have a Toyota Highlander.

I think you should be fine with the Escape. It's not quite as big as my car, but you should be able to put a stroller plus four bags in it. You could even possible put a bag on the floor in front of your DS as he probably won't need the leg room.

Re: Ford Escape rental car - how much luggage space?

I have a Mazda Tribute (same size and Sister to the Escape), and I am able to hold enough luggage for four people with the seat up.

I also have a Ford Focus (as we also rented one for WDW last year), and that same luggage fit into the Focus. You could actually save some money and go small (just an idea).
