Ford F-150 Technology Features

The Ford F-150 is a versatile and impressive pickup that workers and drivers have relied on for decades. However, the 2018 Ford F-150 offers technology that you can include to add more abilities, convenience, and safety to your driving experience.

At Richmond Ford West, we're always happy to give our friends in Glen Allen, Ashland, and Short Pump more details on these optional F-150 technology packages, so they can decide if they'd like to include them with their truck.

SYNC Connect® & FordPass™

Opting for SYNC Connect® with your Ford F-150 brings an 8-inch touchscreen display to your fingertips. You can access your features and apps, as well as additional amenities like SiriusXM® Satellite Radio or your connected media device. FordPass™ is a system that integrates your vehicle to your phone when you download the app. From the palm of your hand, you can have access to vehicle features like:

  • Remotely locking, unlocking, locating, and even starting your vehicle.
  • Locating available parking, reserving a spot, and paying in advance.
  • Finding fuel on the road ahead and comparing prices to find the cheapest gas in the area.
  • Checking the status of your vehicle and scheduling automotive services.

Ford F-150 Driver-Assist Technology Packages

You also have the option of including some sophisticated driver-assist technology packages with your Ford F-150 to add a little more safety and security to your experiences on the road. These packages incorporate sensors that are mounted to the vehicle to give you a heads up of objects on the road.

These features include:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage: The sensors can detect when a vehicle is approaching your blind spot when you're initiating a lane change. The cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage ensure that you're aware of any objects behind your vehicle when in reverse.
  • Pre-Collision Assist and Lane-Keeping System: Pre-Collision Assist uses sensors to detect objects in your path while calculating your rate of approach to notify you if a collision could occur. The Lane-Keeping System identifies the lines on the road and will send an alert if you begin to veer out of your lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go: This feature lets you set a distance from the vehicle in front of you, as well as your preferred cruising speed. The truck will automatically use its brakes to maintain the distance that you set.
