Discover why Fords are some of the safest cars on the road.
When you’re shopping for a new vehicle, safety is a top concern for most drivers - and here at Aspen Ford, it’s a top concern for us too! That’s why we proudly stand behind the entire Ford lineup as being some of the safest vehicles in Alberta. Using innovative technology, Ford brings drivers a series of smart safety systems, such as Co-Pilot 360 and Safe & Smart, designed to sense and avoid potential accidents before they even have a chance to start. When you buy a new Ford, you drive away with confidence knowing that your vehicle is working hard to protect you and your loved ones from accidents on the road.
Ford believes that safety should be accessible, which is why all new 2021 Fords come stocked with a plethora of helpful driver-assist safety features as standard fare. Whether you’re looking to buy a new Ford F-150 for work, or a family-friendly Ford Explorer, you can look forward to advanced features like a Blind-Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross Traffic Alert, which alerts you to vehicles behind you and in your blind spot, Lane-Keeping Assist, which alerts you when sensors detect that you’ve strayed out of your lane, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, which automatically changes the speed of your vehicle to match the speed of the car in front of you to maintain a safe distance. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg - there are plenty more standard and available safety features across the entire Ford lineup!
Always one to stand out from the competition, Ford has designed several safety features that are unique to the Ford brand. Alberta drivers will appreciate Ford’s Evasive Steering Assist, which offers steering support if a slow-moving vehicle (like a farm tractor!) suddenly appears in your path. Ford also offers a Curve Control system, which detects your speed as you enter a steep curve and can automatically slow you down to help you maintain control of your vehicle. Ever passed up the perfect parking space because you didn’t have the confidence to parallel park? Parking anxiety is a thing of the past with Enhanced Active Park Assist, which takes care of all the steering for you while you simply control the accelerator and brakes.
It’s no secret that Albertans love their trucks - and Ford has gone above and beyond to develop specialized features that make life on the road safer and easier for truck-driving families. Going down a steep mountain road can be scary - especially if you’re hauling a heavy trailer or the family RV - but Hill Descent Control has got your back! This system automatically applies the brakes when needed in order to help you maintain a set speed while driving down steep inclines. Popular Ford trucks like the F-150, Ranger and Super Duty also come with helpful tools like Hill Start Assist, a Reverse Sensing System, Dynamic Hitch Assist, a 360-Degree Camera, and so much more.
Being safe should never mean having to sacrifice performance, tech or style! When you shop the Ford lineup, you can count on your new car, truck or SUV to come fully loaded with all Ford’s most advanced and modern features. Not quite sure where to start?
