Ford has invested a lot into staying ahead of the pack when it comes to in-vehicle technology. From semi-autonomous safety features to increased connectivity and convenience behind the wheel, here’s just a few of the high-tech features that Ford offers drivers.
Ford’s semi-autonomous driver-assist and alert-safety features now come bundled with Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology. Innovations including the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert or the Lane-Keeping System help keep you safe by watching the road through cameras and sensors. Some systems even apply gentle torque to the steering wheel to guide you back on track, or help you hit the brakes when you need to stop on a dime. The Pre-Collision Assist System with Automatic Emergency Braking also helps by preventing or mitigating potential collisions to minimize damage. Everything about the Co-Pilot360™ system is designed to aid the driver for a safer time behind the wheel.
SYNC® 3 and Connect + New Apps
Infotainment systems are the way of the future, and Ford stays two steps ahead of the competition by always providing cutting-edge upgrades and innovations when it comes to their in-vehicle technology. New Ford vehicles offer both SYNC® 3 AppLink and SYNC® Connect capabilities, include onboard Wi-Fi® and the FordPass™ suite of apps. AppLink can also now be used to connect to Waze for integrated navigation, and it can even access your home’s Amazon Alexa unit. Its voice command technology is also intuitive and easy to use.
Ford trucks are now fitted with available trailering technology designed to make your driving experience simpler and safer. Pro Trailer Backup Assist helps sync the trailer to your truck to make putting it in reverse less stressful. Plus, the Blind Spot Information System has trailer coverage on trucks, while you can stay in control with features like the trailer brake control, dynamic hitch assist, and an 8-inch productivity screen with trailer information.

For many businesses, it’s critical to have a well-managed fleet of vehicles. If you’re building your business fleet, these management technologies give you a great reason to choose a vehicle from the Ford commercial lineup.
Ford Telematics™ is a fleet management software designed specifically for Ford vehicles. Every time your fleet vehicle takes a trip, it creates data. Ford Telematics collects this data to help you optimize your fleet. With this software, you can monitor your fleet with GPS updates on a live map, set service reminders, monitor fuel usage, and keep track of driver behavior so you can improve safety and potentially save on vehicle insurance.
Ford Data Services™
Your fleet produces a lot of data and you need a secure way to get that data. Ford Data Services™ gives you access to the Transportation Mobility Cloud, an open platform that lets you view secure, clean, telematics data. TMC works with many fleet management tools including Ford Telematics. Your Ford fleet vehicles can send their data to the cloud through their built-in modems.
Along with business-specific technology, your Ford fleet vehicles are likely equipped with advanced SYNC® technology. This touch-screen system can give your drivers hands-free, voice-activated control over many vehicle functions.
Make sure your fleet is always on track by choosing vehicles equipped with built-in navigation technology. The system delivers accurate maps and routes and can be updated, when needed. You can also opt for voice control navigation capabilities.
Keep everyone on the job connected with the available built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot in your Ford fleet vehicles. This allows your crew to connect up to 10 devices, as long as they’re within 50 feet of the vehicle.
Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
Most Ford fleet vehicles are compatible with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. These systems will allow your drivers to seamlessly connect their smartphones and use certain apps through the SYNC system.
