Blind Spot Information System w/ Cross Traffic Alert
When travelling at a speed of 4.82km/h, radar sensors detect vehicles moving into your blind spot. When triggered, indicators on your sideview mirrors light-up until the car is out of range. Meanwhile, the Cross Traffic Alert system warns you of other incoming vehicles near your car while you’re backing up with three different range warnings.
Visibility in the wintertime can be extremely difficult for drivers, especially in blind spots. Instead of spending several minutes scraping the ice, heated mirrors act as a defroster and melts it off with ease so they’re as clear as they were in the summer.
Lane Keeping System
If you find yourself drifting into other lanes, this system both alerts and helps direct you back into your lane. The alert mode warns you to steer back into your lane by vibrating at different intensities, while the aid mode automates the actual steering wheel to help direct you back towards your lane.
Forward & Reverse Sensing Systems
Both these sensing systems alert you while parking to avoid any damage on either end of your vehicle. The sensors emit a warning sound that intensifies as you get closer to an object and stops once you set it on park. Parallel parking has never been easier!
360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display
If your Ford vehicle is equipped with a four camera system, you can use the full 360-degree split-view display to see every side. The system stitches together each camera view on a centre stack screen to give you a full birdseye view of any objects that may be near your vehicle.
Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection
To help mitigate potential accidents with other vehicles or pedestrians on the road, this system produces warning flashes and sounds to alert you while also gently increasing the brake sensitivity before you actually brake. If your vehicle fails to slow down before a potential collision, the brakes will apply automatically.
