Ford has engineered the technology that will be the next big thing in passenger safety, inflatable seatbelts. The inflatable seat belts, along with a whole suite of safety technology, is appearing in a select group of 2015 Ford vehicles such as the Explorer, Fusion, and F-150. The purpose of these new seat belts is to properly distribute the forces that are impacted on a passenger during the event of a car crash. The inflatable seat belts look and work just like a normal seat belt, unless in the event of a crash in which they will deploy.
Ford will be selling this technology and wants to increase the awareness of passenger safety. Bill Coughlin, the President and CEO of Ford Global Technologies, said, “In this case, the wider adoption of inflatable safety belts has the potential to make travel safer and help mitigate passenger injuries – especially among children and the elderly.”
Sanderson Ford is not only concerned with the safety of their customers, but the safety of all.
