Ford Explorer maintains top safety ratings from NHTSA
The 2014 Ford Explorer maintains top marks in the federal government’s new car safety rating program.
Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models earned five-star overall vehicle scores in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program. Available second-row inflatable safety belts offer improved comfort and protection for passengers.
This advanced restraint system is designed to help reduce head, neck and chest injuries for second-row passengers, often children and older passengers who can be more vulnerable to such injuries. Ford Explorer also features AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, Safety Canopy® side air curtain technology for all three rows, and dual-stage airbags for driver and front passenger. The vehicle comes standard with a tire pressure monitoring system and SOS Post-Crash Alert System™.
