What gives the 2018 Expedition a good crash score?
Several changes on the new Expedition have allowed the 2018 model to perform well in crash testing. A body made of military-grade aluminum, and a fully boxed steel frame give this SUV a good balance of durability and stability. It has a lower center of gravity (thanks to up to 325 pounds less weight) which can help in a crash. The 2018 Ford Expedition also has excellent seat belt technology that can help keep all eight passengers where they should be in case of an accident.
Crash prevention technology
In addition to offering the structure that allows drivers and passengers to survive a crash, the 2018 Ford Expedition will be available with plenty of crash prevention technology. Some features that will be available on the 2018 Ford Expedition that may help prevent an accident include Cross-Traffic Alert, automatic high beams, active park assist, and Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
