Technology Spotlight - 2018 Ford F-150 Safety Features
It’s no secret that the F-150 is the toughest truck in town, but a modern high-feature pickup needs more than muscle to tackle the demands of the road. That’s why the 2018 Ford F-150 features a comprehensive suite of safety technologies to keep you safely on your way, whether you’re headed to the work site or out of town for a weekend getaway.
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection uses a sophisticated sensor system to keep you one step ahead of potential hazards. With this feature, your 2018 Ford F-150 scans the road ahead and lets you know if you’re heading toward a potential collision. If a hazard is detected, you’ll receive a visual cue on the windshield and an audible chime so you know to apply the brakes. Even if you fail to apply the brakes in time, this technology can automatically engage the brakes to prevent a collision.
BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Coverage
This available technology displays a signal in the outside mirrors when another vehicle is detected in a blind spot. This technology even knows when you’re towing a trailer and provides a warning if a vehicle is in the way of your trailer when you’re ready to change lanes.
An advanced camera system enables this feature to keep you securely in your intended lane, thus reducing the potential for possible collisions. If you begin drifting from your lane, a vibration in the steering wheel or the application of subtle torque reminds you to stay exactly where you need to be to remain safe on the road.
