Keep reading to learn about its pre-collision system, lane-keeping alert, and blind-spot monitoring system with Sherwood Ford.
The pre-collision system on the 2021 Ford F-350 SRW XLT helps to prevent forward-facing car accidents with an Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system that can sense the vehicle ahead of yours using forward-facing sensors. The idea is to prevent crashes before they happen rather than react to crashes after they happen as many safety systems do. This system can not only detect vehicles but also pedestrians who have strayed into your vehicle’s projected path.
Lane-keeping alert is a system that uses a camera mounted behind your vehicle’s windshield to scan the road marking ahead of your vehicle. It can detect where your lane is on a road or highway and helps to keep your vehicle in it by warning you with steering wheel vibrations when you start to stray from your lane. These vibrations mimic the feeling of driving over a rumble strip, so they will be familiar, and you can react quickly in response.
Another great safety system on the 2021 Ford F-350 SRW XLT is its Blind Spot Information System (BLIS ®) with Cross-Traffic Alert. This system can give you information about what is in your vehicle’s blind spot by using an enhanced system to sense the area to the rear and side of your vehicle. This system can also be used to monitor the blind spot of the trailer that your truck is towing. It supports conventional trailers of up to 33 feet in length to help you safely switch lanes.
