First look at the features included in Ford Co-Pilot360™
For anyone on the road, safety is a primary concern. When you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, you're responsible for paying attention to what is happening around you. While most drivers are capable of focusing on what they are doing, there are always times where paying attention to the road might slip to the back of your mind, which is why Ford is adding Ford Co-Pilot360™ to many of the new 2019 models.
Ford Co-Pilot360™ compiles some of the most popular driver assistance features to help drivers when they're on the road. This suite consists of automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane keeping system, auto high beams, a reverse camera, and a blind spot information system with cross traffic alert. The addition of the blind spot information system and cross traffic alert makes Ford Co-Pilot360™ the most advanced standard grouping of driver-assistance features among its non-luxury competitors.
