Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure (All)

What’s the Benefit?

The ACE body structure is designed to enhance occupant protection in a frontal crash, making for greater driver confidence.

The Feature:

The ACE design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.

  • Enhanced frontal crash-energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.
  • The design also helps reduce the potential for misalignment with the frame of an opposing vehicle, whether it is large or small.
  • Additional structural elements are engineered to enhance vehicle performance in small overlap frontal collisions.
