2018 Ford Explorer Safety


We at Fred Beans Ford of West Chester know how important safety is to SUV drivers in West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern-and that's why we're excited to introduce you to the 2018 Ford Explorer. This vehicle goes above and beyond to keep passengers safe with its array of standard and available safety features.

In this review, you can learn more about the many safety features that have earned the 2018 Explorer a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.1 Let's get started!

Standard Safety Features

Standardly, the Ford Explorer is equipped with a variety of safety features. First off, you'll have AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and Traction Control. These two features work to keep you stable and confident on the road by increasing traction and decreasing the possibility of skidding or sliding.

The Explorer is also equipped with a standard LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tether Anchors for Children) system, Belt-Minder® to remind everyone to put their seatbelts on, and the Safety Canopy® System. The latter system helps reduce injury in collisions by deploying airbags near the windows of the Explorer.

Another standard safety feature you'll get in this model is the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™. This system goes the extra mile to flag down help for you when you're involved in an accident. When this system detects the deployment of the airbags, it'll automatically turn on the hazard lights and beep the horn, so someone notices your vehicle and comes to help.

To prevent problems with your tires and potential accidents, the Ford Explorer also features a standard Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System (ITPMS). This feature measures the PSI (pound per square inch) of each of your tires and lets you know if one of them is too low.

Ford Safe & Smart™ Package

In addition to its many standard safety features, the 2018 Ford Explorer also offers the available Ford Safe & Smart™ Package. This package bundles some of the most impressive advanced safety features on the market.

With this package, you'll get helpful automatic features, such as rain-sensing windshield wipers and auto high-beam headlamps. You'll also get active safety features that act like a second set of eyes on the road, including the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support.

These features use a series of exterior sensors and cameras to keep an eye on what's going on around you. If they detect a potential collision, they'll let you know immediately, so you can react in time to prevent it. Some of these features, such as the Brake Support feature, will even assist you in reacting to get you stopped in time.
