New 2020 Ford Models Offer Robust Driver-Assist Technologies

Ford's new model lineup covers a lot of ground in terms of performance, style, and capability. But there's one element that all of these models have in common: available active safety technology.

Intelligent technology features have become a mainstay of modern automobiles, finding there way into everything from navigation to streaming media and much more. One of the most significant developments on this front is active safety systems. Automakers across the board are equipping new models with cameras and radar systems that work together to keep drivers near Bunker Hill, IN and Logansport more aware and even provide automatic input to help avoid accidents.

Ford is no exception to this trend. New Ford models are available with a ream of safety technologies, ranging from 360-degree cameras to blind spot monitoring.

The bulk of these features are included in the Ford Co-Pilot 360 package. It’s a suite of driver-assist technologies that help make Ford vehicles easier to drive and helps keep drivers confident and aware of their surroundings.

Ford Co-Pilot 360

Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: This feature uses radar to detect incoming hazards like vehicles or pedestrians. When either is detected, the system will sound and display visual and audio alerts alike. If necessary, the system will automatically employ braking to slow the vehicle before collision.

BLIS with Cross Traffic Alert: Merging into another lane can be a challenging process; drivers often aren't sure if there are other vehicles in low-visibility zones. The Blind Spot Information System fixes this problem by indicating when there are vehicles in your blind spots. The system can also let you know when another vehicle is passing behind you during reversing.

Active Park Assist 2.0: This feature conveniently and automatically navigates your vehicle into a parking spot. All you have to do is hold down a button.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go: This feature can maintain a set distance from other vehicles while cruising by automatically adjusting cruising speed. It can even slow down to a stop in traffic and resume when the line gets moving again. It makes commuting a breeze.

Rear View Camera: Need to see behind you? This camera system has you covered with a live video feed in the center display.

Evasive Steering Assist: This feature can add extra steering support when you need to quickly maneuver around an obstacle.

Lane Keeping System: This feature keeps track of where the lane lines are and lets you know if you start to drift out of them. If you drift out a few times, the system will suggest that you take a break to rest.

Auto High-Beam Headlamps: It's sometimes hard to predict when you will or won't need your high beams for enhanced visibility. This feature turns high beams on automatically to make sure you can see where you need to go. It can also detect oncoming cars and turn the brights off accordingly.
