A Mercury Grand Marquis or Ford Crown Victoria might be good. My '08 Grand Marquis has a huge deep trunk. The Crown Victoria is the same car only with a Ford emblem on it. They're very comfortable and have plenty of room in the passenger's compartment as well. They have good ratings for reliability too. I've had mine since '12 and I'm very pleased with it. Even though it's a V8 it's a small V8 and I get 20 miles per gallon around town. HTH. - Jim

Or a Lincoln the same size. My son has an older one with a trunk so deep that it will hold several chairs.

Lincolns resale value doesn't hold up to like a Cadillac, so you might get one at or below the price of a Crown or Grand Marquis even though they sold for much more money new.

I can tell you that the Jeep Grand Cherokee, GMCYukon, Chevy Tahoe and Suburban can all carry a Wheelchair without too much difficulty, the Jeep has a slight problem with clearance at the rear gate, but you said that you could break it down so that solve that problem, also some of the older Isuzu Troopers have good clearances.

Minivans would work too.
