Modern fleet vehicles from Ford offer a wide array of technological amenities, increasing the safety, reliability, and value of your business or organization’s fleet. Here we’ll compare Ford’s fleet line-up to a few popular competitors.
Ford offers eight fleet models and variations: Ford Ranger, Ford F-150, Ford E-Series Cutaway, Ford Super Duty Pick-Up, Ford Chassis Cab, Ford F-650, Ford F-750, and a Stripped Chassis.
What Can You Expect from Ford Fleet Technology?
Ford applies specialized tech to their fleet vehicles to ensure Ford owners can do their jobs with maximum safety and efficiency. They include a variety of state-of-the-art technologies that many other automakers don’t offer. Inside, Ford vehicles built for work. You’ll find an available 8” LCD Productivity Screen behind the steering wheel, Ford+Alexa infotainment tech, a FordPass Connect device-to-vehicle connectivity system, and a plethora of safety features including the Blind Spot Information System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go technology, and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. A fully-loaded vehicle decreases the chance for accidents or errors on the road, whether it’s you or your employees behind the wheel. It also supports your ability to stay connected with customers and staff while in the field.
Let’s examine two popular models: the Ram ProMaster and the GMC Sierra 2500.
Compared to the available tech in Ford’s diverse line-up of fleet vehicles, Ram’s ProMaster line of work vans have underwhelming, outdated technology. For example, its touchscreen interface is only a 5” diagonal. While a smaller interface may not seem like a big deal now, you’ll miss those extra inches when you’re squinting at the screen instead of at the road ahead.
GMC Sierra 2500
The GMC Sierra offers a slightly larger touchscreen interface than the Ram ProMaster, but it still neglects to offer a dynamic Productivity Screen, as is found in Ford fleet vehicles. Ford fleet vehicles and the Sierra 1500 offer similar connectivity features, but only Ford offers it in the form of the comprehensive FordPass Connect system. FordPass Connect includes a 4G LTE WiFi® hotspot with connection for up to 10 devices at a range of up to 50 feet away from the vehicle.
