As every Ford dealer knows, the 2018 Ford Expedition is a great family car for a lot of reasons. The all-new SUV is spacious, practical, and versatile. But now we can add another reason the 2018 Ford Expedition is a wonderful choice for families – it’s one of the safest cars on the market! The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently awarded the 2018 Ford Expedition a five star safety rating, the highest safety score possible from the organization.

So what does it take to earn a five star rating from the NHTSA? When it comes to the 2018 Ford Expedition, it’s a variety of things. For starters, there’s the high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy used in the body. The lighter weight gives the SUV a lower center of gravity, which increases driving stability. The seat belt anchor and retractors boast pyrotechnic pretensioners, which helps keep passengers safe and steady in a crash situation. But it’s not just about how the 2018 Ford Expedition would perform in a collision – it’s also about preventing crashes in the first place. Technology like cross-traffic alert, auto high beams, and pre-collision assist help drivers avoid dangerous situations in the first place.

Not only is the 2018 Ford Expedition safe compared to most vehicles, it’s as safe as it gets when it comes to full-size SUVs. In fact, the 2018 Ford Expedition is the only model in its segment to earn the highest safety rating from the NHTSA.
