Ford F-150: Driver-Assist Features
The Ford F-150 comes with a number of driver-assist technologies that make every drive in the F-150 safer and more convenient.
All the stops
For example, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, as a part of the Ford F-150’s Ford Co-Pilot360™, detects when your F-150 is heading towards a potential collision. The system alerts you visually and audibly and pre-charges your brakes for faster stopping power. If you do not react, the system engages the brakes for you.
The Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies also include the Lane-Keeping System, which monitors if your F-150 starts to drift from its lane and steers it back into its intended path. Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage allows you to know what is going on in your blind spots during lane changes, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go empowers you for a safer cruising experience. You also a rearview camera that coaches you on backing up into that coveted parking space or backing out of your crowded garage.
Light up the darkness
When you drive down a road through the country, you need additional lighting. However on standard vehicles, many of us don’t always remember to turn them off when a car from the other direction approaches. Ford changes this game to ensure we do not blind others on the road. The F-150 auto high-beam headlamps dimmer when they sense lights from incoming vehicles and ensures that no animal or obstruction catches you off guard at night.
Driver-assist features in the F-150 also help you with one of its main duties: its towing. For example, available towing technologies that make the process easier include Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, which makes backing up with a trailer as easy as turning a knob, and dynamic hitch assist with line-of-sight guide. An 8.0-inch productivity screen gives you all the towing information you need behind the wheel.
