Safety has remained a top priority at Ford with the roll out of every new model. With the continued evolution of vehicle safety features, we thought we’d take a moment to break down a few of our car safety features to illustrate how each one is helping keep you and your passengers safe on the road.
Mitigating a crash can be just as important as preventing a crash. The actions taken in the seconds immediately after a collision has occurred are critical to preventing a secondary collision. Post-collision breaking technology introduces braking in that critical time frame to reduce risk.
Blind Spot Information System
It can be really hard to respond something that you can’t see. Regardless of the unique visibility challenges your vehicle presents, the Ford blind spot information system is a valuable feature offering cross-traffic alerts to bring your attention to vehicles you may not see, especially in troublesome areas like your rear panels. By providing an audible warning, visual display and a signal in your message center, the system communicates approaching vehicles from as far as 15 yards away.
Evasive steering marries your vehicles camera and radar technology to identify slowing vehicles and facilitate maneuvering around them. Essentially forecasting an imminent collision, evasive steering is a powerful vehicle safety feature in situations requiring an immediate response.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Cruise control is far from being new on the scene. Adaptive cruise control, however, takes it to the next level. Most valuable when you have a long drive ahead, it integrates lane centering technology with intuitive stop-and-go abilities.
Enhanced Active Park Assist
Even the most experienced of drivers can face some difficulty when attempting to parallel park in challenging conditions. Enhanced active park assist can help you find an available spot in crowded parking lots and smoothly aid you in backing into or parallel parking into the trickiest of spots.
