Trunk Dimensions of 2011+ Coupe Mustang

Hi everybody,

I am french... and however also a Mustang fan. (Quite rare cars in my country but I get the chance to enter in a wonderful Shelby GT' 69... and till I a am really fond of these muscle cars)

In few weeks, I am going to rent a Mustang Coupe (V6 only but it is a starter) for a trip in Florida and I am currently thinking which luggages to take for this 2 week vacation.

Is there someone kind enough to give accurate dimensions of the trunk ?
I know the volume is not really "square" so several pics / point of measurements would be very helpfull

I do know that one large luggage and small one would fit but getting the real dimensions would help in choosing the right luggages so that the trip would be without having packs on the rear seats all the time :-(

Thanks for your help

If you don't have kids to stuff in the back, the rear seats can fold down if you need them too; Plus the back seats are great for holding travel/duffel bags.

lots of room for luggage (smallish opening though) if there are only two of you you'll be fine. If there are more than two the people in the backseat will not be happy if they are old enough to speak.

edit. how do you get two threads and one post?

With the seats down I was able to squeeze a passenger, myself as driver, 4 wheels and 4 tires into my car, and still had viewable room out the rear window. Very ample space if you do not opt for a convertable.

The Trunk Size is quite ok for a Coupe (sorry for no actual sizing)
But i would prefer Softcase Travel bags, as the Trunk Opening is very small.
If you get a Coupe, you can load via the folding down rear Seats.

I told it, but no one was listening.

This and Immortal's reply are the best answers so far. The Mustang coupe's trunk space is surprisingly large for a car of its type, but the opening itself is a little restrictive.

The space in any trunk is VERY irregular; when a manufacturer says it will hold x.y cubic feet, that's talking about filling the space with something like ping-pong balls and has little meaning for pieces of luggage. So use the dimensions that follow as a rough guide only:

The main, rearmost portion of the trunk has a central area about 44" wide (between the wheelwells), 25" front to back, and 17" high. This is where your largest pieces of luggage would have to go.

Forward of this is a smaller, more irregular area about 37" wide, 14" front to back, and 15" to 10" high depending on where it is measured. A standard-sized carry-on would easily fit in here.

Behind the wheelwells, the 44" x 25" x 17" area widens out to about 55" x 14" front to back.

The unobstructed opening at the rear center of the trunk lid measures 25" wide x 15". Just forward of this, the opening widens to about 36" but is only 9" front to back -- see photo below:

Note that the dimensions shown in the photo are for the trunk opening only, and NOT the actual trunk space within. If you can get a piece of luggage through the opening, there will be plenty of room for it inside the trunk. Also, all of these dimensions are with the rear seat backs folded up. If you don't need the back seat for passengers, you can fold the seat backs down and gain a lot more space for your bags.

Hope this helps, and enjoy your trip to Florida!

Thanks everybody for your very accurate and helpful answers.

I am now fully aware of this trunk geometry and opening.
I will so get the correct luggages for this great trip in my first Mustang

13 GT base, 3.55, Sterling Grey, MGW shifter, BMR LCA's, GT500 AB, silver RTR's, 275/40/19 Michelin pilot super sports, more stereo equipment than I will admit to, more parts to come.

If you pack in smaller, soft bags, it is easier to get things in any car. If you are traveling to a destination with numerous layovers, you can split up your clothing, and have a bag for your every night necessities. Also, do not forget that the spare tire area can hold a lot of items.
