Ford Safe and Smart Package
Driving an Explorer is safer than ever thanks to Ford’s new Safe and Smart Package. This package is standard on Explorer Platinum models and available to add on XLT, Limited and Sport models. Safe and Smart Packages include:
  • Adaptive Cruise Control -- you set the speed and the distance between you and the vehicles around you. When traffic ahead slows down, your Explorer automatically slows down. When the traffic speeds up, the same thing happens. 
  • Forward Collison Warning with brake support—Sensors monitor what’s happening in front of you. If a front-end collision seems imminent, alerts will chime and the brakes will apply automatically, helping to reduce the likelihood of an accident. 
  • Lane-Keeping System -- vibrates the steering wheel when you drift too close to a lane marker. It can even sway you back into your lane. 
Other Safety Options
The Explorer XLT model now comes standard with the Blind Spot Information System (known as BLIS)
BLIS uses radar to identify a vehicle detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror.
Every Ford Explorer comes standard with a backup camera and the Ford MyKey system. 
MyKey is great for those with teen drivers. You can set a maximum speed and radio volume for the vehicle in MyKey. The radio will also not play unless everyone in the car is wearing a seatbelt.
