2011 Ford Explorer Offers Industry-First Inflatable Seat Belt
Ford says rear seat passengers, often children or mature passengers, can be more vulnerable to head, chest and neck injuries.The Ford inflatable belts spread impact forces across five times more area than conventional seat belts. This reduces pressure on the chest while helping to control head and neck motion. Belt comfort also should help increase usage rates. Studies show inflatable belts to be more comfortable for passengers due to the padding.
It's an industry-first from Ford.
