The unparalleled safety features the Ford Company has made standard on almost all makes and models of Ford vehicles are, without a doubt, favorites of our salespeople at College Ford Lincoln in Lethbridge.
Your safety is our number-one concern. With these features in place, we are confident our drivers and the people they love most are safe in a Ford.
Ford MyKey, standard on almost all Ford models, is a critical part of our commitment to keeping first-time drivers safe. MyKey is a key custom-programmed with safety features you feel are most appropriate for your teenage driver. Those features include:
a safety belt reminder with repeating alarm
low fuel light that activates earlier, allowing more time for fuel-up
the ability to restrict vehicle speed
the option to set audio systems to a maximum volume of 45%
If your model is equipped with these additional features, MyKey can also be set to:
always be on for Advance Trac or traction control
911 Assist or Emergency Assist
Do Not Disturb, which prevents incoming texts and phone calls while driving
Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert
Ford Co-Pilot 360 System
The Ford Co-Pilot 360 System provides our drivers with six different elements and varying degrees of innovation. This system is not just for first-time drivers. With this system in place, driving your car becomes infinitely safer.
The Ford Co-Pilot 360 System includes the following safety features:
Pre-Collision Assist With Automatic Emergency Braking
Pre-Collision Assist uses in-car technology to scan the road ahead and alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians it detects in your path. If an object is detected, a warning flashes on the windshield and an alarm sounds. If you are alerted and take no action, the brakes are applied automatically. The brakes are only applied if you need them - not if you don’t.
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
If you are concerned about taking your eyes off the road in front of you to check behind you, the BLIS with Cross-Traffic alert can aid in their detection.
Active even when you’re not moving, radar systems on either side of your car detect when a car is present and in your blind spot. A light comes on in the corresponding side-view mirror to alert you to the vehicle you may not be able to see. *This system only detects motorized vehicles, not bikes, walkers, or other objects.*
Cross-Traffic Alert warns you a moving car is coming from either side when you’re backing up with three alerts: a light on the corresponding side-view mirror, a chime, and a message in the message sensor.
Auto High Beam Headlights
A standard feature, the auto beam headlights can sense poor lighting conditions and automatically turn on to increase visibility. A real plus for nighttime highway driving, it also senses when another vehicle is coming from the opposite direction and dims automatically.
Evasive Steering Assist
This available feature can help make it easier to avoid a potential collision. It does not steer for you, but it provides steering support if the system warning goes off and you need to maneuver around the vehicle ahead.
This feature keeps you in your lane, especially in a moment of distraction, by constantly scanning your positioning within your lane and alerting you should you deviate from it.
Your eyes should always be on the road! Ford’s Head-Up Display is the best way to get the critical information you need without taking your eyes off the road.
Available on most models, this safety feature is designed to show images regarding current speed, navigation, and information regarding your pre-collision assist on a display screen in front of you as you look through the windshield.
FordPass with FordConnect
Providing added comfort while on the road, FordPass is a complimentary app available to all new Ford owners. Paired with FordConnect, FordPass allows the user to access remote features like start/stop, lock/unlock, schedule a start, locate the vehicle, and vehicle status checks. With this app, you can see current fuel levels, service history, warranty information, and when it’s time for an oil change.
One key safety feature FordPass provides is quick access to Ford’s Roadside Assistance. Ford’s Roadside Assistance is available 24/7, providing drivers with fuel delivery, winch-outs, tire repair, lockout assistance, battery jump starts, and towing.
At College Ford Lincoln, we are proud to provide lifesaving features like these on our vehicles. Come let us show you how they work and how they can provide you with confidence and peace of mind while you are out on the road.
