Ford Measured The Interior of the Escape With Ping Pong Balls

Ford Measured The Interior of the Escape With Ping Pong Balls

We always assumed that, in order to measure interior volumes, some guy with a protractor, caliper, and measuring tape went and took a bajillion measurements of the interior of a car. We also assumed that this information was then fed to a very fancy computer which, after a minute or two, spat out a number. Apparently, stuffing the cars full of ping pong balls is faster, more accurate, and no doubt more fun.

A Ford Escape, for example, can hold 56,778 ping pong balls. We must say, we're a little disappointed in Ford though. We wanted a picture of an Escape holding all 56,778 balls.
