Smart Safety in the 2018 Ford F-150: It's Not Your Grandad's Pickup

New technology becomes available to auto makers all the time. Most manufacturers are taking advantage of this influx of tech to make cars smarter and safer than ever before. Now, Ford has brought smart safety technology into its perennially popular pickup, the F-150.

The 2018 F-150 starts out safe in the first place. A military-grade aluminum body on a rugged steel frame works in tandem with airbags throughout the cabin to make sure occupants face as little harm as possible in the event of an accident. But what about preventing wrecks altogether?

That's where smart safety comes in. These systems monitor conditions and obstacles and automatically react when the driver does not. Pre-collision assist detects impending collisions with objects or pedestrians and automatically applies braking to help prevent a crash. For highway cruising, adaptive cruise control can maintain a consistent distance between you and the next vehicle by adjusting the F-150's speed.

Whether you're looking for a smart work truck or simply a safe commuter, the 2018 F-150 is worth a look when it becomes available later this year. You can also visit our location near in Danbury to check out the safety features in the 2017 F-150.
