From the ground up, the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum takes every corner and stop of your drive seriously, with advanced performance levels and safety features to bring you confidence and provide peace of mind. The Safety Canopy system is a combination of side-curtain airbags and a rollover sensor to help in providing protection in certain side-impact and rollover accidents. This technology remains inflated for a couple seconds longer than other airbags to prevent occupant ejection. Other safety features include blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert. This system uses radar quarter panels to identify when a blind spot is being entered and it provides an indicator light in the side view mirror to notify the driver. Cross-traffic alert is able to detect a vehicle approaching as you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot and sends a notification to inform the driver. The advanced safety technology of lane departure warning with lane keep assist is able to detect the lane markings of a roadway and ensure you do not make any swerves from your lane. Bring safety to every journey through this array of features that are committed to your safe arrival. The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum takes everyday driving and turns it into an adventure you don’t want to miss out on. See it in person at West Coast Ford Lincoln.
