Safety

Even with the issues Consumer Reports raised and the sales halt that followed, the federal government has not yet crash-tested the GX. Nor has it issued a rollover rating. Most large SUVs, like the Ford Explorer, have a three-star rollover rating. Other luxury makes, like the MDX and Enclave, earn four-star rollover ratings.

The GX comes equipped with an above-average arsenal of airbags, including knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger. Seat-mounted side airbags are also standard for first- and second-row passengers, and there are curtain airbags for all three rows. There is also an optional collision-warning system.
