Ford Expands Availability of Inflatable Safety Belts

Ford is continuing to find new ways to raise the bar in terms of quality, fuel-efficiency, and certainly safety. The 2014 Ford Fusion recently became the only vehicle in its class to offer rear inflatable safety belts. These are essentially seat belts that turns into airbags. The inflatable safety belts were first introduced by Ford in the 2011 Explorer and ever since then they have been become such an appealing option. So much so that Ford is now expanding its availability so it will now be included on the Flex and Taurus as well as the Fusion and Explorer.

These belts provide additional protection for rear-seat passengers. Rear seat passengers are usually children or older adults that need more protection since their head, neck, and chest are more vulnerable and more likely to injure upon impact.

“The inflatable belt is designed to help reduce head, neck and chest injuries for rear-seat passengers, often children and older passengers who can be more vulnerable to such injuries,” said Srinivasan Sundararajan, safety technical leader with Ford’s research and advanced engineering group. “This is another unique family technology that builds on our safety leadership.”

When it comes to safety, nothing beats Ford. Come out to Friendly Ford today and check out our great selection of top-safety rated vehicles.
