2019 Ford F-150 Safety & Driver Assistance Features
Known for its powerful engines and unmatched towing ability, it’s no surprise that the Ford F-150 reigns as America’s best-selling pickup. On top of that incomparable strength, the 2019 F-150 goes above and beyond with an advanced set of safety and driver assistance features that give drivers more control behind the wheel than ever before. Check out for yourself what safety and driver assistance features you can find on the 2019 Ford F-150.
Pro-Trailer Backup Assist
The F-150’s available Pro-Trailer Backup Assist takes the hassle out of maneuvering a trailer. With this added feature, the F-150 gains a Trailer Backup knob located on the dashboard. This knob acts as a second steering wheel for your trailer. While in reverse, simply push the knob’s trailer backup button, remove your hands from the wheel and turn the knob in the direction you want the trailer to go. The system will work the steering wheel for you accordingly. Yes, it’s just that easy.
Hill Descent Control
The available Hill Descent Control system serves as cruise control for steep slopes. Drivers can pick a decent speed between 2 and 12 mph and the system will continually adjust braking pressure to help control slippage and maintain that preset speed. Just press the hill descent button located on the instrument panel and you’re set for the rest of your descent. You can increase and decrease the set speed by pressing on the accelerator or the brakes until you reach the desired speed.
Ford F-150 Co-Pilot360 Safety Features
Automatic High Beams—Automatically toggles between low and high beams to provide the best possible view of the road without casting a glare at other drivers.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking—Uses camera and radar technology to scan the road ahead for collision risks. When a potential collision is detected, the system warns the driver. If no corrective action is taken, the system can automatically apply the brakes.
Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage (Available)—Uses radar sensors mounted on each side of the vehicle to detect and warn the driver of vehicles located in the blind spot zone. When towing a trailer, the system will also warn you of vehicles alongside your trailer.
Lane-Keeping System (Available)—Uses a front-mounted camera to identify lane markings on the road ahead. If the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane, the system can respond by vibrating the steering wheel or applying steering torque to help re-direct the vehicle on its path.
