Ford Co-Pilot360

When you buy a new Ford, you’re buying into a future with better protection and fewer collisions on the streets of Hillsboro, NH. Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Assist Package equips drivers with a range of innovative safety technologies to support your awareness on the road, keeping you and your passengers safe and sound. These safety features and technologies are designed to help drivers and passengers stay safe on the road, whether it’s through collision prevention, improved visibility, or assistance with parking and maneuvering. Ford continues to innovate and improve safety across its vehicle lineup to provide peace of mind to drivers and their families. Let’s take a look at some of the key safety features you can find in Ford vehicles:

  • Ford Co-Pilot360™: Ford’s advanced driver-assist technology suite, Co-Pilot360™, includes features like pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, blind spot information system, lane-keeping system, auto high-beam headlamps, and adaptive cruise control. These features help drivers stay safe and alert on the road.
  • Blind Spot Monitoring: This system uses sensors to monitor blind spots and provides warnings to the driver when another vehicle is detected in those areas. It helps prevent lane-change collisions.
  • Lane-Keeping System: Ford vehicles often come equipped with lane-keeping assist, which uses cameras to monitor lane markings. If you drift out of your lane without signaling, the system can provide steering assistance to keep you in your lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Adaptive cruise control adjusts your vehicle’s speed to maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead. It can even come to a complete stop and resume driving when traffic conditions allow.
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection: This feature uses sensors to detect potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians. It can provide warnings and, if necessary, apply the brakes to mitigate or prevent a collision.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps: Auto high-beam headlamps automatically switch between high and low beams based on oncoming traffic, improving nighttime visibility without dazzling other drivers.
  • Rear-View Camera: Most Ford vehicles come with a rear-view camera, making parking and reversing safer and more convenient.
  • Park Assist: Some Ford models offer park assist systems that help drivers with parallel and perpendicular parking. The vehicle can take over the steering while the driver controls the pedals and gears.
  • Cross-Traffic Alert: Cross-traffic alert systems use sensors to detect approaching vehicles from the side when you’re backing out of a parking spot. This feature provides warnings to help you avoid collisions.
  • Airbags and Safety Cage: Ford vehicles are equipped with a comprehensive airbag system, including front, side, curtain, and knee airbags. The vehicle’s safety cage is designed to absorb and redirect energy away from the occupants in the event of a collision.
