How safe is the 2018 Ford Expedition?

2018 Ford Expedition NHTSA safety rating and available driver assistance innovations

For most Canadians, going on a long trip is an exercise in careful planning and good times behind the wheel. Both of these values are achieved nicely onboard the Ford Expedition, one of the largest (and most innovative) of the model line’s SUV family. Across the generations, the Expedition has turned from a relative newcomer into a real and true icon for so many, which makes the recent safety upgrades it has introduced that much sweeter. We invite you to check out the 2018 Ford Expedition NHTSA safety rating and available driver assistance innovations with us today to see what we mean!  

Safety ratings of the 2018 Ford Expedition

It can often be difficult to evaluate just how safe and capable a vehicle is, which makes it all the more impressive how the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) goes about its business. This organization can dole out safety and crashworthiness ratings with pristine accuracy, and the Expedition has scored highly!

To be more specific, the 2018 Expedition has received a 5 Star overall rating by the NHTSA, the highest that it’s able to achieve. Perhaps even more impressive is that it’s a top-ranking model whether you opt for its 4×2 or 4×4 configurations, giving you the ultimate peace of mind no matter where you are.
