Safety Canopy Rollover System From Ford


Safety Canopy

Ford was the first in the industry to offer rollover deploying side curtain air bags, known as Safety Canopy™, beginning with the 2002-1/2 Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer.

Today, the Safety Canopy™ with rollover sensors – which helps protect vehicle occupants during side impact collisions and rollover accidents – is available on nearly all Ford Motor Company SUVs, and on certain cars and vans.

* Safety Canopy™ is standard equipment on the 2006 Lincoln Navigator, Mercury Monterey, Volvo C70 and XC90, Land Rover LR3 and Range Rover Sport.

* Safety Canopy™ is available on the 2006 Ford Explorer, Escape, Escape Hybrid, Expedition, Freestyle, Freestar, Five Hundred, Mercury Montego, Mariner, Mariner Hybrid, Mountaineer, and Mazda Tribute.

AdvanceTrac© with Roll Stability Control ™

To help mitigate rollover accidents, Ford Motor Company offers AdvanceTrac© with Roll Stability Control™ – an industry first which takes standard electronic stability control systems to a new dimension by using gyroscopic-effect rate sensors for both Yaw and Roll axes to sense unstable conditions and apply countermeasures to help the driver maintain control.

* The 2004 Lincoln Navigator was the first vehicle in the full-size SUV segment to offer standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control™. By the end of 2005, Ford Motor Company will have more than half a million vehicles on the road with this safety technology.

* AdvanceTrac© with Roll Stability Control™ is standard equipment on most 2006 Ford Motor Company SUVs, including Ford Explorer, Lincoln Navigator, Mercury Mountaineer, Volvo XC90, and on the Ford E-350 12- and 15-passenger Extended Wagons. The feature is available on the 2006 Ford Expedition and will become standard on Expedition in 2007. It will be standard on the 2007 Ford Sport Trac and will be available on the 2007 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX.
