Parking is a necessary but unloved part of the driving experience, and when it comes to the dreaded parallel parking, often actively avoided. But there’s no avoiding parking completely, which is why Ford automakers have worked hard to make the whole experience easier, safer, and better for everyone involved.

One of the easiest ways that many Ford vehicles improve the parking experience is with a rear view camera. When you back your 2017 Ford Escape out of a spot, the rear view camera ensures that you can easily see any passing pedestrians, approaching cars, or other obstacles with a fuller view and less neck craning than most drivers are used to. And when you’re reversing your 2017 Ford Fusion into a small parallel space, the rear view camera means you’ll be able to get as close as possible to the car behind you without bumping into it.

But if you want to take things one step further, innovative Ford technologies can help you do just that. If you choose to equip a model like the 2017 Ford Focus with Active Park Assist, you can count on your vehicle to guide you through the whole process. Ford Active Park Assist starts by using sensors to find a spot that will fit your car, and once activated, actually steers you into the space! All you have to worry about is changing gears and working the pedals based on audio cues from the system.

With technology like this available, there’s no reason to worry about parking for a second longer.
