Default Anti-roll bar in Scorpio

Can we fit a rear anti-roll bar in Scorpio to make it a more stable ride and avoid that dangerous SUV phenomenon "rollover" ?.

Anti-roll bar can at best prevent the car from rolling while turning, but if you go beyond the safe thresh-hold centrifugal force, the vehicle will still tip over. In this case, there will be less warning.

Imagine a car with no suspension. Body just welded to the chassis having wheels. There would be zero rolling, but this contraption would still roll over. Cannot defy physics...can you.

I thought the Scorpio already had a rear anti-roll bar? Whats the point?
