Ford Safety, All You Need to Know

It's hard to believe just how far cars, trucks, and SUVs have come. In terms of safety features, Ford has equipped all of their models with an array of standard safety features that lend a helping hand. We are all human, and all can benefit from some added confidence on the road. From merging into other lanes to seeing what's behind you, the Ford safety features are there when you need them most. Let's explore these features and how they come in handy.

Safer at Every Turn

Ford vehicles have several available driver-assist features that make getting from Columbus to Marshall WI effortless. After using the driver-convenience features, you won't remember what it was like driving without them. These features include the listed below.

  • Driver-activated front rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Auto high-beam headlamps
  • BLIS®(Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert
  • Lane-keeping System
  • Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with brake support
  • Panel roof included in the Ford Safe and Smart Plus Package

Let's dive into what these features are capable of.

BLIS® with cross-traffic alert uses radar technology to detect a vehicle in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light on your exterior side-view mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radars to detect a car passing behind you, so when you are backing out of your driveway or parking spot, this system will alert you if there is an approaching car from up to 15 yards away.

Adaptive cruise control is another beneficial feature. You can select a speed and distance that you want to keep from another vehicle in front of you. When traffic slows down, your Ford will automatically slow down and then resume its set speed. Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you to potential collisions, and if you don't react in time your Ford will apply the brakes for you.

We want our drivers to feel confident and safe on the roads. In a new Ford model, you'll be equipped to feel your best no matter the distance.
