There’s a new standard for safety in town: Ford Co-Pilot360™. The most advanced non-luxury suite of standard driver-assistance technologies to date, Ford Co-Pilot360™ will protect you and serve as the keeper of your peace of mind. While most big-name auto brands offer a variety of available safety features, Ford will be the first nameplate to equip every model across its lineup.
But what specific features will come standard? Let’s take a closer look.
5 Things to Love About Ford Co-Pilot360™
Auto High Beam
Having to constantly adjust your high beams on a dark, winding road can be distracting to you and dangerous for other drivers. That’s why Ford Co-Pilot360™ will provide Auto High Beam capability. This nifty feature will automatically activate your headlamps when you need them. And when you don’t? Auto High Beam will dim the lights when you’re approaching well-lit areas or another vehicle.
Blind Spot Information System With Cross Traffic Alert
Let’s face it: Every car has a blind spot. But fortunately, drivers with Ford Co-Pilot360™ won’t have to worry about theirs. Thanks to the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), drivers can know immediately when another motorist enters their blind spot. And with Cross-Traffic Alert, they can know if a car or object is present while they’re backing up.
Speaking of backing up, Ford Co-Pilot360™ will come with a built-in reverse camera — an amenity that might not be available at the base trim of competitor models. With increased visibility for moving in reverse and parking, going backward will have never been easier.
Lane Keeping System
Plenty of technologies notify you if you’re veering outside of lane markings, but Ford Co-Pilot360™ takes things a step further. Once it vibrates to let you know that you’re drifting, Lane Keeping Assist will help you steer back toward the center of the lane. Then it will deliver audible and visual warnings if your attentiveness is less than ideal.
Pre-Collision Assist With Pedestrian Detection
A form of automatic emergency braking, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection harnesses the latest advances in predictive technology. If a collision with a pedestrian or another car is detected, this system will alert the driver audibly and visually. If the subsequent response is not deemed effective enough to avoid a collision, Ford Co-Pilot360™ will apply brakes to minimize a harmful outcome.
