If you’ve been reading this blog, you’ve probably heard us talk about things like how the advanced technology in the 2017 Ford F-150 makes it the smartest version of the truck ever, or the advanced safety features in family vehicles like the 2017 Ford Escape, or all the Ford models that come with the available SYNC3 system that can keep drivers connected and entertained. Today we thought we’d go a little more in-depth about some of these elements.

As far as safety goes, Ford automakers are constantly working to improve the available safety technology in all models. Using radar, sonar, and cameras, drivers can count on adaptive cruise control to ensure a safe following distance from vehicles in front, as well as forward collision warning, which works in tandem with the brakes to warn drivers of a possible crash situation and give the brakes maximum sensitivity when drivers respond. A lane-keeping system and blind spot information system help drivers stay in their preferred lane and make lane changes safely. Many features also double as driver assist features, making driving not only safer but easier. A rearview camera and active park assist help drivers see where they are going when they reverse and evaluate where a car will fit to park and help the driver steer it in. And all these features, utilizing innovative technology, are just the tip of the iceberg of what you can find in a new Ford vehicle.

On top of safety and driver assist features, there’s also the SYNC3 system, available in everything from a sedan to an SUV. The SYNC3 system uses voice activated technology to allow you full control while keeping your eyes safely on the road. Easy phone syncing makes hands-free calling a breeze, and Sirius XM radio will bring you the best in music and entertainment on the road. You can also use SYNC3 to play your own music from your device, and even make personalized playlists. SYNC3 also offers navigation, climate control, and much more, all activated through an LCD screen or with your voice.
