Technology features have become increasingly important for car buyers and a must-have for their new cars. Drivers from Geneva, Canandaigua, and Rochester want quick access to information and entertainment options in their car, as well as top-notch safety features to help protect them and their loved ones from collisions. Ford gives their drivers useful and fun features for a comfortable driving experience. Learn more about the Ford F-150 technology in our detailed analysis below.

Safety Features

Ford wants drivers and their passengers to feel safe in their models, while also giving them assistance for parking in tight spots. The F-150 delivers important standard safety features that include a Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Trailer Sway Control,       and Auto high-beam headlamps.

To bolster your car’s safety, you can buy optional features such as BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and the Lane-Keeping System. Also, the Adaptive Cruise Control has stop-and-go technology where your car will slow down on its own to keep a certain distance from the car in front of you. The 360-degree camera with split-view display allows you to see traffic and what’s around your car from all sides, which proves handy when your view is obstructed by a trailer or a tall item in the truck bed.

Ford F-150 Technology for Towing

Certain drivers use the truck primarily for towing purposes. Whether you need to haul heavy equipment for work or hitch a trailer for the family road trip, the F-150 makes for a powerful towing vehicle and offers technology to help you with your towing needs.

With the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ feature, you just turn the knob in the direction that you want the trailer to go, and the car and trailer will synchronize when they both back up. The F-150’s Rear View Camera with dynamic hitch assist uses gridlines to help you connect your truck’s hitch to the trailer’s receiver. The LED lighting illuminates the truck bed and tailgate handle so you can hitch your trailer at night.  Check this out for more of the F-150 towing capacity!

SYNC® 3 Infotainment System and Other Features

The SYNC® 3 infotainment system comes standard in the XLT and higher trims. The system has an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, and voice recognition activation. SYNC® 3 also offers an innovative traffic-monitoring app that sends alerts on traffic jams and accidents and allows you to contact other drivers for the best routes and detours.

Other available 2019 Ford F-150 technology features include navigation, dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, and USB ports. The FordPass™ Connect with Wi-Fi® Hotspot lets you link up to 10 mobile devices.
