At the top of the list of advanced new safety and driver assistance features included in the 2018 Ford F-150 are a pair of segment-first features. First, there’s the available adaptive cruise control system with stop-and-go functionality which allows you to set a speed before using advanced radar and camera technologies to monitor the traffic ahead of you in order to maintain a set distance between you and the cars around you. This feature will even bring your 2018 F-150 to a complete stop if necessary. The other is the pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection system, which monitors the space around you for vehicles and pedestrians. These two features join other available safety features such as the blind spot information system, the lane-keeping system and a 360-degree camera.
Music is a staple at any worksite, so why shouldn’t it be a staple in your favorite work partner – your 2018 Ford F-150. If it wasn’t before, it will be now, thanks to the newly available B&O PLAY audio system complete with high-end speakers.
