2021 Ford F-150 Helps Keep Drivers Safe and Secure in BC, Canada

Safety is your number one priority on BC’s worksites, and that’s true for the 2021 Ford F-150, too. This truck has plenty of features available to keep you protected as you drive across the province. From parking to hauling, you can rest assured the various Co-Pilot360 services offered have your back.

2021 Ford F-150 Lets You See More Around You in BC

The 2021 Ford F-150 has lots of options that enhance your ability to view your surroundings. It starts with the Blind Spot Information System, which uses cameras to monitor anything hidden where you can’t see while simultaneously flashing alerts to warn of approaching obstacles. It works with a trailer hitched up, too; and, if you add the optional telescoping mirrors, you get an even bigger picture.

An On-Demand Rear View camera is also available. It affords a 180-degree picture of potential hazards behind you – ideal for backing out of tight spaces. Not only does it work when the gear is set to “Reverse,” but you can activate it any time you want via the Uconnect touchscreen to check on trailers.

And for nighttime travels, Auto High-Beam Headlamps are there to take the strain off your eyes. When low-light conditions are detected, they can switch on themselves. Then, if any traffic is recognized to be approaching, they’ll dim to ensure you don’t blind other drivers.

2021 Ford F-150 Helps Prevent Accidents in BC

Because driving a pick-up in tight traffic can be tricky, the 2021 Ford F-150 offers multiple accident-avoidance features. One such option is the Lane-Keeping System, which uses intelligent sensors to scan for road markings. It will activate alerts as you start to drift; and, if that happens a few times, a coffee cup icon will illuminate on the dash – indicating that it’s time for a break.

On a similar note, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Breaking can kick in when needed, too. This system will continuously keep track of traffic ahead of you using forward-facing sensors – including any pedestrians. If it notices an imminent accident and you don’t take evasive action, it will apply the brakes by itself.

Evasive Steering Assist is another option you can use to prevent accidents. This system doesn’t move the wheel for you, but it provides extra support when you do take command. It also displays a warning and sounds an alert to notify you that an upcoming avoidance manoeuvre is required.

2021 Ford F-150 Helps You Park in BC

Trying to park a truck can be quite the challenge - especially when hauling cargo. Thankfully, Pro Trailer Backup Assist is available to help. This system makes reversing easy. Just turn a dial in the direction you want to go, and your F-150 takes care of the rest - tracking alignments of both the chassis and your payload to assure optimal positioning. Steering wheel tension is then increased to maximize handling, and a smooth trajectory is charted via guide-lines on the central screen. 

If you have to pull into a tight spot, there’s Activate Park Assist 2.0 available. After you activate this feature, it can help you locate a site in which the F-150 will fit. Then just brake, shift into Neutral, and press the button – your truck will do everything else. And, when you need to exit, side-sensors can navigate you away from other nearby cars.

Through these features, BC drivers can more effectively navigate downtown environments - even when taking advantage of the F-150's payload capacity of 2,238 pounds. 

2021 Ford F-150 Assists You in Navigating BC

Getting to your destination is a crucial part of safety. That’s why the F-150 has a connected built-in Navigation System on offer. It not only tells you where to go, but it can help you find gas stations or coffee shops - so you and your truck can fill up when required.

And, as you're driving, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go is there to help you stay steady. Not only does it maintain a set pace, but it can slow down or accelerate as needed to keep up with other traffic using multiple sensors. Plus, it stays aligned with its Lane Centring feature, which detects markings on the road. At the same time, Speed Sign Recognition adjusts velocity on-the-fly.

Hill Descent Control is also available. This system combines traction and cruise management with anti-lock brakes to moderate your truck’s behaviour on slopes. It continually adjusts stopping pressure to keep you going down at a steady rate between 3 and 19 km/h. That way, you can focus on steering, and the pickup does the rest.
