I wonder if we're going to see this in the Bronco Sport? Ford has filed a patent for a new airbag system that's designed to help with vehicle rollovers. Two airbags are stored in a roof rack and drop down the sides of the vehicle in the event of a rollover.

The patent was filed back in 2015. "According to Ford’s description, after deploying downward from the roof rack, each airbag could “be held in desirable deployed position by one or more elastic tethers.”
