If you are in the US and interested in a Ford, your dealer will be happy to let you try your harp in any car you are interested in.
We are a Flex family- the Flex holds my 85P with tons of room to spare, and I can’t imagine the Style 23 not fitting as well.
The big advantage we find with the Flex is that it is low, like a sedan, but boxy. Very easy to load, with a flat entry floor.
The mileage is about the same as the Explorer.
Again, the most important thing is to explain to your dealer what you need the room for, and do a trial before buying.
