In the name of safe driving, numerous carmakers are gearing for improved driver assistance features. Ford makes sure that they’re not staying in the shadow. Recently, the blue oval brand has announced a bunch of new driver assistance technologies, which falls under the name, Ford Co-Pilot360.
Planning to debut on the new 2019 Ford Edge and Edge ST around September in North America, the new system consists of essential safety features: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, Lane-Keeping System, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross traffic alert, auto high beam, and reverse backup camera.
In addition to that, the American marque also offers a premium version of Co-Pilot360, which has adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane-centering, evasive steering assist, and post-collision braking.
The Ford Co-Pilot360 is set to roll out across the brand’s passenger, SUV, and truck segments in North America.
Another good news is that, Ford is also planning to make AEB as a standard safety feature on new passenger cars, SUVs, and trucks in North America by 2022. Not only that, the company is also set to invest more than P26 billion on the next five years to further develop new driver-assist safety technologies.
“Though our vehicles today are safer than ever, drivers tell us they are still stressed about getting in a potential accident. That’s one reason why we’re making these must-have technologies accessible to millions of customers each year.”
The Japanese brand closes its fiscal year 2018 with 58.5% growth from the previous period.
