The 2021 Ford F-450 Detects Potential Collisions in Summerland

May 25,2022

Enhance your commercial fleet's safety and avoid costly downtime with the 2021 F-450 from Skaha Ford in BC. This medium-duty truck comes equipped with Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking to detect accidents before they happen and react if your driver does not. The Pre-Collision Assist feature uses camera technology to sense a potential collision with a vehicle or pedestrian directly in front of the F-450 during daytime or nighttime driving. It can help reduce the severity of and possibly eliminate a frontal collision.  Additionally, if a potential collision is detected, an alert sound will emit through the cabin, and a warning message will display in the message centre. If action is not sufficient, the Automatic Emergency Braking system will precharge the brakes and increase sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when braking does occur. If no action is taken at all, the brakes will automatically apply as a last resort to avoid an accident with a pedestrian or another vehicle. The Super Duty's Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking is like having another set of eyes on the road. This feature comes standard on 2021 F-450 XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trims and is optional on the base XL trim.
