Embrace the wild side as you embark on each journey from a place of prepared stability in the 2016 Ford Platinum. Impressive details and advanced performance become one as you enjoy a luxurious design that was created with you in mind. Safety is a main priority and that is why you are offered features such as the Safety Canopy System to keep you protected. This system is a combination of side-curtain airbags and a rollover sensor that help in providing protection for certain side-impact and rollover accidents. It is also able to remain inflated for a couple seconds longer than other airbags to prevent occupant ejection. Stay aware of your surroundings through the blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert. Utilizing radar quarter panels to help identify when a blind spot is being entered, this system is able to notify the driver when the space around the vehicle is not clear. Cross-traffic alert brings your level of awareness up as it is able to detect a vehicle approaching as you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot. An extraordinary design is presented with the Explorer Platinum, combining advanced technological features and a commitment to quality. Let Your Legacy Start Here with Legacy Ford Ponoka.
