Ford is introducing an all-new inflatable airbag restraint design in the 2015 Mustang providing knee airbag protection for the front seat passenger.
It is the first knee airbag system packaged inside the glove box door. It will be introduced later this year as part of a standard safety feature that includes a more robust package of sensors.
The design includes an inflatable plastic bladder integrated into the glove box door which provides front passenger knee protection similar to a conventional knee airbag mounted under the instrument panel.
The airbag design is 65 percent lighter while the inflator is 75 percent smaller than a conventional knee airbag inflator.
