The 2018 Ford Expedition is a family-friendly SUV with plenty of space for both passengers and cargo. The Expedition is now even more appealing to families after earning a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA is one of the leading automotive safety organizations, and the 2018 Ford Expedition safety features proved especially crucial in earning it the highest honor for safety available
According to The News Wheel, the Expedition earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating by getting nearly perfect scores in the New Car Assessment Program’s crash tests. Features that helped it to earn such a rating include high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy in the body; a fully-boxed steel frame; and driver-assist technologies aimed at providing confidence behind the wheel. These high-tech safety features include Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Forward Collision Warning, and auto high-beam headlamps.
“As a father of four and longtime Expedition owner, safety was a top priority when engineering the entirely new Expedition,” said Andrew Kernahan, Ford Expedition chief program engineer. “We are proud of the many features Expedition offers today that help keep our customers safe on the road.”
The 2018 Ford Expedition is big in more ways than one. It’s imposing in size and a great value, perfect for your family needs or making first impressions. To test-drive the Expedition and experience its award-winning safety in person, stop into Sanderson Ford.
