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.

      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

      Thankfully, they are largely used as police vehicles. So if you slam on your brakes with one of these chasing you down, you will probably end the chase abruptly, and make your escape with only minor damage to your rear bumper.
      It is shocking to think that this ROBUST looking car, crumpled so badly at what looked like a 30mph collision though. I think I will steer clear of these, literally.
