Ford and Safety go Hand in Hand

See Why New Ford Cars, Trucks and SUVs are the Safest Options for All Kinds of Travels

Whether you have the whole family packed up in your Explorer or Expedition, or you're finishing up a tough job, riding solo in your F-150, you'll drive with confidence thanks to Ford safety that unites this brand's new lineup. From high-end driver assistance technologies that keep you out of harm's way, to the intelligently strong and safe designs and engineering of these models, you'll find plenty to be happy about when it comes to protecting you and your most precious cargo. Visit our Westbrook, ME Ford dealer serving Portland, South Portland and Scarborough today and learn more about the available safety systems found in these reliable and trustworthy vehicles.

First and foremost, Ford vehicles are simply designed for your protection. Especially in our latest new Ford models, you'll find the design is reinforced with high-strength steel, aluminum and other materials, all designed to keep you and your passengers safe in the event of a collision. Building a car, truck or SUV can't be all about safety however, otherwise you'd just be driving huge chunks of heavy, reinforced steel around. With your other driving needs in mind - such as efficiency, maneuverability, etc... - Ford uses materials like lightweight aluminum that remain strong and protective in the event of an accident, all while working harmoniously with your chassis, suspension and undercarriage to nimbly move you along.

The innovative design and build of these new Ford models is just the start. From there, you'll find many advanced driver assistance systems that are available through the various trim level editions of each new Ford. While not necessarily designed for your own safety, the rearview cameras offered standard on many new Fords will provide you with a clearer picture as you back out of your garage or driveway. Moving on, and usually offered in the higher trim levels above base model versions, you'll find a wide assortment of optional safety equipment in your next Ford. Take a look through some of these available features to learn more.

Driver Assistance Features Offered in New Ford Models

  • Forward Collison Warning: Available in most new Ford models, this will provide an alert to keep you from colliding with the vehicle directly in front of you.
  • Automatic Emergency Braking: This will kick in when you don't respond to an alert, keeping you from crashing into the vehicle in front of you.
  • Blind-Spot Warning: This will alert you if you use your turn signal to merge into an adjacent lane when another vehicle is in your blind spot.
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Warning: Provides some kind of notification when a vehicle is out of view in your rearview mirror, but coming up closer to the back of your car.
  • Lane Departure Warning: Alerts you when you are crossing lane markings without a turn signal.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Using lasers and cameras, this will keep your car a safe and steady distance from the vehicle ahead of you while you're in cruise control.

This is just a taste of some of the popular driver assistance and safety systems offered in many of our new Ford models. We'll make sure we go over each and every trim level offering for the specific model you're considering, and to show off how these safety systems work. Additionally, you'll enjoy having the Ford experts at our service and parts at your disposal.
