2018 Ford F-150: Technology
The 2018 Ford F-150 is the most popular vehicle in the U.S. because it offers a striking design, impressive capabilities, and lasting quality. However, the F-150 is also popular because this model comes with the latest high-tech features on the market. Ford has always been an industry-leader when it comes to innovation, and the F-150 has some unique features to keep you up to date as you drive, to improve entertainment, to optimize safety, and to modify performance.
SYNC CONNECT® and FordPass™
SYNC CONNECT® is an available feature powered by FordPass™. This system can remotely track your vehicle to access features, allowing you to easily lock or unlock, start or stop the engine, check the vehicle status, and even look at fuel levels. You can also schedule specific remote start times to make sure that your car is ready to go in the morning before work.
The FordPass™ system is an app that’s available on most smartphones. It was developed by Ford to help you stay better connected to your car, allowing you to do several things with just a press of a button. For instance, you can find parking ahead of time in big cities. You can compare fuel prices along your route, lock or unlock remotely, and even schedule service for your F-150.
Driving doesn’t have to be difficult. There are a range of systems that make driving simpler. For example, a 360-degree camera with a split display allows you to easily see where you’re going when you reverse or parallel park. There’s also an available remote tailgate release which pairs with other features like an integrated tailgate step and deployable box steps.
In addition to keeping you better connected, Ford technologies help keep you safer on the road. The available Blind Spot Information System® can detect when there are other cars in your blind spot, giving you a warning before you change lanes. You can even modify this system to add trailer coverage. Pre-Collision Assist can scan the road ahead to alert you to danger and potentially pre-charge the brakes to help you stop in time. Adaptive Cruise is a lifesaver for those who frequently drive on the highway, as this system cannot only set a speed, but it will also maintain a safe following distance. No more fiddling with the cruise on the road; just set the system and relax.
