Ford is famous for building the toughest vehicles to handle even the most difficult jobs. Now the automaker has taken strength to a new level, developing an ultra high-strength steel manufacturing process that creates materials that are literally stronger than railroad tracks and military tanks.
In creating the roof rails for the 2020 Ford Escape and the 2020 Ford Explorer, Ford developed a new forming approach known as 3D Roll and Sweep. Basically, the process roll-forms the material into a tube and then bends it into a unique shape. The process is less costly than the former hydroforming process and more than twice as strong.
The high-strength steel in Ford models also allows for increased space inside the vehicle and an overall reduction in weight, enhancing comfort and performance.
Steel as strong as a military tank isn’t the only reasons why the new Ford vehicles are safer than before, though. New Ford models feature a huge array of advance safety technologies that let you drive with total confidence. Features like Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Blind Spot Information System, Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Evasive Steering Assist all work in tandem to keep you safe no matter the conditions on the road.
