The 2017 Ford F-150 has a wide range of safety features and technologies both standard and available. Besides an advanced suite of airbags, the F-150 also comes standard with Curve Control, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
But where the F-150 really shines is its use of driver assist technology. Driver assist technologies are becoming more and more important to consumers, and the F-150 not only integrates helpful safety features but also offers technology tailored to pickup truck drivers.
The F-150 comes with available BLIS, or Blind Spot Information System. This system alerts the driver when a vehicle is in their blind spot with a blinking light on one of the outside mirrors. The BLIS technology also comes with Trailer Coverage, so you don’t have to worry about seeing around your trailer when you’re towing something. Finally, this system comes with cross-traffic alert, which lets you know when a vehicle is driving behind you while you’re backing out.
The F-150 also has an available 360-degree camera with split view display. This uses four cameras, placed under both side mirrors and at the grille and tailgate, that piece together images they capture to give you a complete 360-degree view around your truck. This feature is useful on trails, maneuvering in tight spaces, and with backing your hitch ball onto your trailer.
Finally, the F-150 has Trailer Backup Assist, a feature that helps you back up your trailer more safely than ever. With an easy to use knob that lets you turn the trailer with more precision than the steering wheel allows, it’s much simpler to change the direction of your trailer, and thanks to the F-150’s rearview camera you can easily see behind you to avoid running into anything when backing up.
