The Taurus and Explorer achieved their top ratings thanks to safety measures like:
• Redesigned airbags, including dual-stage driver and front-passenger units, and, in the Explorer, Ford’s first passenger-side knee airbag
• Ford’s Safety Canopy System, which leverages a rollover sensor and side-curtain airbag to provide enhanced protection in certain side-impact and rollover scenarios
• Enhanced safety restraints, with the Explorer introducing inflatable second-row seatbelts
• An array of electronic safety systems, including stability control, forward collision warning with brake support, and the company’s Blind Spot Information System
• The SOS Post-Crash Alert System, capable of automatically unlocking vehicle doors, as well as activating the horn and emergency flashers, after deployment of airbags and/or seatbelt pretensioners
“Ford offers industry-leading features and technology on our Ford and Lincoln vehicles because of our commitment to customers and their safety,” said Robert Brown, Ford vice president of Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering. “These most recent crash test ratings from NHTSA are a validation that Ford is continuously innovating in the availability of safety technologies that benefit drivers and occupants in real-world accident situations.”
(In addition to the Explorer and Taurus, the 2013 Lincoln MKS also garnered a five-star Overall Vehicle Score in the recent NHTSA testing.)
