Every Ford produced is packed with creativity and innovation. Technology that helps us build cleaner, quieter, more sustainable vehicles, and create smarter, safer, more connected driving experiences.
With busy roads and so many distractions, we could all use some help to make our journeys easier. Which is why our researchers, engineers, designers and scientists are shaping the future of mobility, including spearheading automated driving with Ford BlueCruise.
Hands-free assisted driving has arrived for Mustang Mach-E owners 2023 onwards. This rigorously tested ‘hands off, eyes on’technology allows you to safely remove your hands from the steering wheel across all ‘Blue Zone’ designated roads. Experience it for yourself, with a 90-day free trial*.
For less stress when driving in heavy traffic. Simply set your desired cruising speed, and Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go automatically maintains a pre-set distance from the vehicle in front, bringing your car to a stop if necessary. Once the traffic ahead clears, the system accelerates back to your chosen speed.
Forward-looking cameras can detect if you unintentionally drift out of your lane. The system then alerts you by vibrating the steering wheel, and can even provide gentle steering assistance to help guide you back into the right lane. The Lane-Keeping System is designed for multi-lane roads. Automatically deactivates below 43 mph, or can be turned-off manually.
Hill Start Assist gives you extra control when starting on a slope. The system works by maintaining pressure to the brakes for an extra 2.5 seconds, to temporarily stop you rolling backwards (or forwards) while your foot moves from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.
When you stop at red lights or in heavy traffic, Auto Start-Stop can automatically switch off the engine while still supplying power to essential systems, like the headlights, air-conditioning and Ford SYNC. When you're ready to move again, just depress the clutch (or press the accelerator for an automatic), and the engine restarts.
Blind Spot Information uses sensors to look for vehicles hidden in your blind spot. If another vehicle is detected, the system alerts you via discreet warning lights built into both door mirrors. Cross Traffic Alert helps when reversing out of spaces with limited visibility by sounding an alert if it detects vehicles approaching from the sides.
For signs at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition is designed to identify them. It then displays the sign’s information – including speed limits – on your instrument cluster. Speed limits will update every time you enter a new speed zone.
The FordPass Connect* modem and FordPass app allow you to interact with your car like never before. with a range of connected services in your vehicle, and on your smartphone, that work together to keep you effortlessly connected on every journey.
