Additionally, the Explorer offers adaptive cruise control with forward-collision warning and Brake Support, a lanekeeping system, and a blind-spot information system with cross-traffic alert.
One of the most innovated safety features is the world’s first automotive production inflatable rear outboard safety belts. The inflated safety belt helps distribute crashforce energy across more of the passenger’s torso than a tradition safety belt, which helps reduce the risk of injury while also providing support to the head and neck. If a front or side impact were to occur, the inflatable safety belts hold the passenger in the safest seated position, which reduces injury. These safety belts are also compatible with child-safety seats. Delivering big things in terms of safety, you will handle troublesome road conditions easily with standard features like trailer sway control and stability and traction control. The stability control system includes Ford’s Curve Control, which automatically decelerates when it detects speed carried into a corner. The available rearview camera makes backing up a snap. Advanced safety systems - including the optional blind-spot warning and lane-departure warning systems are designed to maximize your vigilance. With countless technology features at your fingertips, the 2015 Ford Explorer makes your driving experience more convenient and enjoyable.
