In our experience at Grogan Ford, safety is a top concern for families looking to buy a new vehicle. That was true in years past, and it is undoubtedly one of the top questions we are asked by consumers lately.
Not too far behind safety come questions about comfort, reliability, and affordability.
At Grogan Ford in Watford, we understand what our friends and neighbors are looking for in a new vehicle, and we help them think through all their choices.
The Ford Co-Pilot360 System is an innovative driver assistance system. With its lifesaving features, many of which come standard on all Ford models, it’s worth asking your sales team member about those features that might be most appropriate for your family.
The Ford Co-Pilot360 System includes the following safety features:
Pre-Collision Assist With Automatic Emergency Braking
If you’re moving too quickly for the traffic in front of you, sensors alert you to slow down. If you don’t react quickly enough to the warning, the system will activate automatic emergency braking to decrease the possibility of a collision.
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
With this system, you no longer have to twist and turn to see the traffic in your blind spot. Our system alerts you with an indicator in the corresponding side-view mirror.
If you’re in reverse and traffic is coming from either direction behind you, Cross-Traffic Alert lets you know! Cross-Traffic Alert uses three alerts to warn you a moving car is coming from either side when you’re backing up: a light on the corresponding side-view mirror, a chime, and a message on the message screen. There should be no more close calls in crowded parking lots with this feature assisting you!
Auto High Beam Headlights
You may not think Auto High Beams are a safety feature, but with their automatic dim and brightening, they certainly are. With sensors to detect appropriate amounts of light, these beams automatically dim when oncoming traffic is approaching and brighten so you can see what’s ahead and in your periphery with ease.
Evasive Steering Assist
Although this system doesn’t steer for you, it can help guide you should a collision be imminent. There is never a guarantee you won’t have an accident, but with systems like these in place, the impact will be lessened should a collision be unavoidable.
Sometimes it is impossible to keep your eyes on the road at all times. In the event you inadvertently veer into a lane other than your own, the lane-keeping system will gently sound an alarm and guide you back to your detected lanes if necessary.
Available on most vehicles, this safety feature is great for everyone, but especially for families on the go. With Ford’s Head-Up Display, you get all the critical driving information you need without taking your eyes off the road. The Head-Up Display shows you images regarding speed, navigation, and other pertinent driving information that can be helpful as you keep your eyes on the road ahead.
You told us, and we listened! Without proper ventilation, passengers in the backseat can get stuffy and cold. As a result, Ford made rear air ducts standard on most models. No more complaining! Everyone has control over their comfort levels.
Everybody likes the comfort provided by sliding seats for extra legroom, soft-cloth plush front bucket seats, and the convenience of SYNC 3 for touchscreen navigation, music, climate control, and enhanced voice recognition. SYNC 3 is available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Families should be confident that Ford consistently ranks highly in reliability on most model cars, trucks, and SUVs. When you’ve gone to all the trouble to get everybody dressed and ready to go, your Ford will be ready to go, too!
An added comfort is FordPass, a mobility app that allows users to access complimentary remote features like start/stop, lock/unlock, schedule a start, locate the vehicle, and vehicle status checks. With this app, you can see current fuel levels, service history, warranty information - even when it’s time for an oil change.
