The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced the 2013 Ford Taurus and Ford Explorer have earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score in New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) testing.

The 2013 Ford Taurus and Ford Explorer feature several active and passive restraint technologies, which include redesigned airbags and restraint system enhancements. Each of these enhancements help drivers avoid potential crashes and all of these features played a part in their overall performance in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) testing.
Both the 2013 Ford Taurus and Ford Explorer offer safety and driver assist technologies, including dual-stage driver and front passenger airbags, Safety Canopy® System, inflatable safety belts, AdvanceTrac® ESC (electronic stability control), forward collision warning with brake support, SOS Post-Crash Alert System™, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with cross-traffic alert, and MyKey®. The 2013 Ford Explorer will also hold Ford’s first passenger-side knee airbag.
