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.

      Ahora entiendo porque tiene pesima reventa. Ni cagando compro una explorer, ni expedition ni una edge. Tiene mejores resultados la F150.

      Wow im a 17 year old teenager and i was happy that my parents gave me a 2016 ford explorer sport and that was a pricy 50k. Seeing this has made me so terrified for an accident and im just shocked that this is how weak the material could be. Does thos only pertain to the 2018 model or what. Anyways im getting a 2020 explorer st this summer so hopefully the new frame and design has made it tougher.

      if you want a strong, big, and anti-eco auto, buy a bus or a semi-truck.
      Those are probably the hardest cars you can get from the market.

      I wonder how much safer cars would be if it was mandatory every dealership had a tv showing the crash test beside every vehicle (display vehicle) so potential customers can see and judge if they wanna risk buying such a vehicle. because this would turn me off completely I own an f150 supercrew and thought that all fords were up to that standard of safety I guess not :/

      All that money. All those highly qualified engineers. All the time they’ve had to improve the explorer since it came out. This is pathetic Ford, Pure garbage. Shall we take a trip back to the dynamics/statics classes in uni? Perhaps you need to freshen up.

      I worked at the factory that makes the engine cable for these, the reinforcements are on the drivers side not the passenger side. Why they're not on both sides I'll never know, most likely cost
