Driver Safety First: Ford Co-Pilot360

Drivers needn't worry as long as Ford has your back. Co-Pilot360, a new suite of driver-assist technologies, emphasizes driver efficiency and safety. We here at Heritage Ford in Modesto, CA are already fans and can't wait to share the full details of the suite with our customers. Here are two technologies that we love about the suite.

Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)

The precursor to AEB is pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, a system that emits warning sounds and flashes after detecting pedestrians crossing in front of your advancing vehicle. If you fail to brake at the warning sounds and flashes, AEB kicks in to stop an unfortunate, perhaps deadly accident.

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)

BLIS uses radar to detect vehicles that veer into your blind spot as you're driving down the road. BLIS alerts you with a flashing light in your side-view mirror, giving you an opportunity to merge or change lanes carefully. Ford Co-Pilot360 is slated to be standard on all new Ford models by the end of 2019.
