Ford Escape: Personal Safety System™

What Is the Personal Safety System

An advanced safety system that protects occupants in frontal crashes.

The system analyzes occupant conditions and crash severity before activating the appropriate safety devices. During a crash, the restraints control module may deploy the seatbelt pretensioners, and one or both stages of the dual-stage airbags based on crash severity and occupant conditions.
