The 2020 F-350 carries more than cargo. Instead Vernon drivers will bring passengers along on their adventures – wanting to embrace the Go Further philosophy together. Safety, therefore, proves essentialâ€¦ and this is why Ford delivers Belt Minder tech to BC.
Anchoring the interior of the new F-350 system is the Belt Minder program. This console ensures that all passengers are securely fastened as they travel the backroads, delivering real-time notifications to the driver in a three-step process:
One: Integrated buckle sensors monitor both door and seat pressure activity, automatically identifying when a passenger has entered the truck.
Two: Those same sensors immediately note which passengers have not used their seat-belts, recognizing the lack of pressure and proper positioning.
Three: If the engine engages and no action has been taken, the system will release a series of audible chimes – as well as flash a warning across the dash.
This allows operators to recognize when a passenger hasn’t properly fastened his or her seat belt – and it affords enough time to correct the problem and ensure a safer experience.
With the inclusion of the Belt Minder system Ford is redefining pick-up performance. To learn more about this and other F-350 technologies contact our team today.
