7 Treadmills That Will Fit in Your SUV

As you may already know, buying a new treadmill or a used treadmill often assures delivery to your doorstep with no extra care or planning required on your end. However, what happens when you are moving or placing your items in storage?

Will your treadmill fit in your car? (If you are interested in viewing which ones fit in your car, you can check the list here). 

Should you plan this out even before buying your treadmill as a way to think one step ahead?

It never hurts.

We have researched 5 of the most common/popular full-size and mid-size SUV models on the market.

Ford Explorer

Honda Pilot

Chevy Tahoe

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Toyota 4 Runner

6.1’ x 3.8’ x 3.8’ (ft)

5.6’ x 4’ x 3.9’ (ft)

6.7’ x 4.1’ x 3.5’ (ft)

5.6’ x 4.1’ x 36’ (ft)

5.6’ x 4.1’ x 36’ (ft)

After exploring their maximum interior storage capacities we will then take a look at the treadmills that you can safely fit in these vehicles for transport while boxed and unboxed.

Believe it or not, it is extremely difficult to find the interior cargo dimensions in an L x W x H format, as the standardized measurements nowadays are in Cubic Feet (but what normal person really understands that?), so trust us when we say this was a labor of love for you wonderful readers!

Let’s get started. 

SUV Interior Cargo Volume (Seats Folded)

2002 Ford Explorer

Listed below are the dimensions of the interior cargo volume for the 2002 Ford Explorer.

We lay it out in inches, feet, and then also cubic feet so you can best apply these to the treadmills you are looking at. Because most treadmill dimensions are measured in inches, we will start with that.

  • 73.5” x 45.4” x 45.6” (in)
  • 6.1’ x 3.8’ x 3.8’ (ft)
  • 88 cu. ft.

It is worth noting that although some of these models may be older, the dimensions have not changed too much (and if they have, they have only gotten bigger) over the decades and you should be able to confidently apply these dimensions to your newer Ford Explorer Model.

2014 Honda Pilot

Listed below are the dimensions of the interior cargo volume for the 2014 Honda Pilot, which is one of the more popular SUV models and years on the market.

We lay it out in inches, feet, and then also cubic feet so you can best apply these to the treadmills you are looking at. Because most treadmill dimensions are measured in inches, we will start with that.

  • 66.6” x 48.4” x 47” (in)
  • 5.6’ x 4’ x 3.9’ (ft)
  • 87 cu. ft.

Although some of this model may be older, the dimensions have not changed too much (and if they have, they have only gotten bigger) over the years and you should be able to confidently apply these dimensions to your newer Honda Pilot model...give or take a couple of inches, but the differential won’t be an issue for the treadmills we have found.

Believe it or not, it is hard to find an SUV that most treadmills won’t fit in.

Let’s continue.

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe

Listed below are the dimensions of the interior cargo volume for the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe, which is one of the bigger storage capacities on this list.

We lay it out in inches, feet, and then also cubic feet so you can best apply these to the treadmills you are looking at. Because most treadmill dimensions are measured in inches, we will start with that.

Something to note is that our interior dimensions calculated the overall storage volume to be closer to 96 cu.

ft. but the manufacturer has a total cargo volume of 108.9. Take from this what you will, but it only means you should have more height and width to work with.

  • 81.4” x 49.1” x 41.7” (in)
  • 6.7’ x 4.1’ x 3.5’ (ft)
  • 96.1 cu. ft. (manufacturer says 108.9 cu. ft.)

Needless to say, we will most definitely have treadmills that will fit within the Chevy’s storage capacity.

Onward!


2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Listed below are the dimensions of the interior cargo volume for the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which adds a little drama to this article, as it has a slightly shorter interior height than our other car models.

We lay it out in inches, feet, and then also cubic feet so you can best apply these to the treadmills you are looking at. Because most treadmill dimensions are measured in inches, we will start with that.

  • 67.2” x 49.2” x 36” (in)
  • 5.6’ x 4.1’ x 36’ (ft)
  • 68 cu. ft.

Internal View of 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with seats down. Dimensions once again are: 67.2” x 49.2” x 36” (in)


2017 Toyota 4Runner

I am not going to lie to you guys, this is the current make and model that I own, so I have a vested interest in knowing these measurements. I had a rough idea, but to make sure I walked right outside with my tape measure to get the facts.

  • 66.1” x 49.2” x 37” (in)
  • 5.6’ x 4.1’ x 36’ (ft)
  • 69 cu. ft.
 It’s not the most or least storage capacity on this list, but it sure is roomy for how compact the car is.

There is actually a wide range of differences in the interior space in full-to-mid-size SUVs, some full-size SUVs are even outclassed in space by mid-sized models.

The bottom line is that when the seats are dropped, there is quite a bit of space to fit cargo in your SUV, including most treadmills.

All that being said, there are some treadmills that you should definitely be able to fit inside your car for transportation. So now let's look at 7 treadmills that should fit in the SUVs listed above.

7 Treadmills That Will Fit in Your SUV

Sunny Health & Fitness Electric Folding Treadmill with LCD and Pulse Monitor, 265 LB Max Weight, Device Holder, Bluetooth Speakers and USB Charging - SF-T7917

Dimensions while boxed:

  • 69” x 35” x 15” in

Dimensions while folded:

  • 32” x 32” x 57” in
  • 2.6’ x 2.6’ x 4.75’ (ft)

Ok, so although the length of the treadmill while boxed might be showing as too long to fit in some of the SUV’s we have listed above, I have it on good authority that you could most definitely fit it into any of these vehicles with just a little finesse.

Bottom line is that it will fit.

On top of that, this treadmill also offers many of the premium amenities for a rather reasonable price.
