Let’s talk now about your safety. Safety is an important aspect for Ford when designing and manufacturing their vehicles. A standard safety feature in this SUV includes the Belt-Minder® system that serves as a reminder with a sound and by lighting the seatbelt sign to warn the driver when a seatbelt is unbuckled. The Safety Canopy® System is a side-curtain airbag in the case of a rollover accident. They help prevent the passenger’s head from hitting the window. Still with the theme of airbags, there is a Front Passenger Knee Airbag to ensure that the passenger’s knee is not injured during a collision. In the event of a crash, there is also an SOS Post-Crash Alert System to help you and your passengers request assistance quickly after a collision. There is also optional industry-first inflatable rear outboard safety belts. This design shares the crash force energy across the passenger’s torso.
