Internal memos from Ford that were presented during a new trial show that from 1995 – 1999 the Ford Explorer roof strength went from 1.72 strength-to-weight ratio to 1.56, just over the federal minimum of 1.5. Within the memos, engineers expressed concerns over the strength of roof pillars, but no changes were made. Ford is fighting the judgment that found in favor of a woman that was killed when her Explorer rolled several times and the roof caved in.
