The 2018 Ford Explorer rates poor because its structure was seriously compromised. Intrusion reached 15 inches at the lower door hinge pillar and 13 inches at the upper door hinge pillar and the dashboard. The door sill was pushed in 6 inches toward the dummy. Measures taken from the dummy showed a high likelihood of injuries to the right hip in a real-world crash of the same severity, as well as a possibility of left lower leg injuries.

The Explorer also had poor structural performance in the driver-side test and earns an overall rating of marginal for driver-side small overlap protection. Ford is redesigning the Explorer and says the new model will have improved small overlap protection on both sides.

      According to your channel no SUV is safe. I feel like any mid range SUV crashed this way would fail.

      Nice to know even seeing these pieces of sh*ts EVERYWHERE isn’t because they’re good, it’s because they are cheap. I’ll keep my legs intact by skipping this Ford, or any Ford for that matter.

      They call it the Explorer because you'll likely be exploring the afterlife in one of these
