Safety Technology

Recent Ford models are typically endowed with intelligent safety features. These driver-assistance aids are particularly useful with models like the 2020 F-150, as the truck's size can make it tricky to navigate through tight areas.

The list of driver-assistance equipment found in the Ford F-150 centers around the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite. Here are some of the features you can expect:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking

The Lane-Keeping System will alert you if your truck begins to unknowingly drift out of its lane. For the Pre-Collision Assist setup, you'll receive a warning if a front-facing collision seems likely. If you fail to respond, the truck will automatically apply the brakes.

Other safety features include a Rear View Camera, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go capability.

Towing-Specific Technology

If you're grabbing a 2020 Ford F-150, there's a good chance you'll be hitching a trailer to the model with regularity. To offer some aid for these instances, Ford has created multiple towing-specific technology packages.

A good example is the 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display. First, the camera provides a bird's-eye view of your truck so that you can see exactly what obstacles surround you. From there, the camera display on the touchscreen can be split into four images. Finally, the dynamic hitch assist gives you a useful sight line when trying to attach your hitch ball to the trailer tongue.

Another system is the 8-inch LCD productivity screen, which will display fuel economy figures, towing information, the driving mode that your truck is currently in, and much more.

Remote Connectivity

You'll always be in touch with your Ford F-150 after downloading and connecting the FordPass Connect™ application.

The application exists on your smartphone and links to your truck. Once connected, you can utilize many features, with a few prominent options being:

  • Locking, unlocking, and starting your car remotely
  • Comparing fuel prices of nearby gas stations
  • Receiving service reminders and updates
  • Finding parking in advance
