  • The exterior has been revised with Ford’s signature 3-bar grille, sculpted hood with more defined accent lines, new front and rear fascias, and new taillamps.
  • Safety features now include standard dual-stage driver and passenger front airbags, front side-impact airbags, plus side curtain airbags for both seating rows.
  • AdvanceTrac electronic stability control is optional.
  • Increased sound-dampening insulation, hydraulic engine mounts, revised strut towers, new front and rear dampers and springs, as well as a retuned rear suspension greatly increases interior quietness and overall ride smoothness.
