Ford models today are outfitted with some of the best safety and driving assist technologies on the market. While some models come with absolutely everything you can imagine, like the Ford Co-Pilot 360™ system, others need you to add some safety features. With that in mind, take a look at some of our suggestions for Ford safety features we think you should have on your model, regardless of what you’re driving!
If you’re one of the rare breeds driving a pickup truck in Ontario (and all the more power to you!), then you should consider adding the 360-degree camera system. Not only does it give you multiple cameras and viewing angles, but it also stitches and compiles all the footage together to give you a complete bird’s eye view of your truck while driving out of difficult parking spots or when trying to hitch a trailer.
Driver Alert System
Supplementary to the Lane Keeping System, the Driver Alert System ensures you stay on course by monitoring your driving behaviours throughout your drive. When the system detects irregular driving patterns, such as difficulties driving within your lane, it eventually alerts you to take a rest from driving. As we all know, taking long drives throughout Ontario is never an easy job, especially if you have to travel all the way to bigger cities for work.
BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
If you’re one of those people who have high stress-levels when trying to switch lanes on a busy highway, then the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert is the perfect solution to alleviate those anxieties. The system alerts you of incoming traffic on either side of your vehicle when it detects another car approaching when you are attempting to switch lanes. Having BLIS® on your Ford vehicle makes the commute on the Gardiner less stressful than it already is!
Front Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers
We’d have to consider this one of the most underrated driver’s assist features out there. Front Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers are not only super convenient, but they’re a sure-fire way of ensuring you get the best visibility during your drive. Additionally, newer Ford models can alert your vehicle’s wipers when precipitation is detected on the horizon to ensure you’re prepared when it starts to get wet outside.
