If you think trucks like the Ford F-150 focus on power at the expense of cutting-edge safety, you need to think again. Just a few of this Ford truck’s state-of-the-art driver-assistance technologies include:

  • 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display: Multiple cameras positioned around the Ford F-150 combined to create a 360-degree bird’s-eye view. It’s the perfect feature when you need to park in a busy Hayward lot.

  • Pre-Collision Assist: The Ford F-150 can sense possible collisions, provide a warning, and pre-load the brakes.

  • Lane-Keeping System: Should you start drifting from your chosen lane between Rice Lake and Cumberland, the Ford F-150 will automatically apply corrective steering pressure to keep you centered.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-And-Go: Your preset cruising speed will be automatically adjusted up and down to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, even bringing you to a complete stop when necessary.

Safety-Focused Towing Features

Since the new F-150 remains a half-ton truck inextricably associated with best-in-class towing, the latest model carries a whole host of smart towing features to keep safety first-class regardless of what you’re hauling.

Towing safety features include:

  • Class-Exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist: When you back up a trailer, you must control two vehicles going in opposite directions. To keep things safe, use Pro Trailer Backup Assist — rotating a knob left or right directs where you want the trailer to go.

  • Factory-Installed Trailer Brake Controller: Sure-fire stopping power is synonymous with safety, so the Ford F-150 can synchronize truck and trailer brakes to give you exactly that.

  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage: When you need to change lanes, you’ll be alerted if a vehicle is in your blind spot or alongside the trailer.

  • Smart Trailer Tow Connector: Worried about connectivity issues or battery problems? Don’t be — the Ford F-150 smart trailer tow connector will alert you to any such issues.
