2018 Ford F-150 Safety

When you consider your next pickup truck, you think about things like power and performance. However, if safety is among the top things on your priority list, you should consider the 2018 Ford F-150 as your next addition to the family or work fleet.

This pickup has a variety of safety features to offer ranging from standard airbags to advanced cutting-edge safety features. Below, we at Fred Beans Ford of West Chester will introduce shoppers in West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern to the F-150's many safety features. Let's get started!

Passive Safety Features

The 2018 Ford F-150 is standardly equipped with several basic but helpful safety features starting with front, driver, and passenger airbags and seat-mounted side airbags. You'll also have Safety Canopy® side curtain airbags, which deploy from around the windows to reduce side and rollover impact, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, and a safety belt from every passenger.

Also standard in the F-150 is a battery of passive safety features like Curve Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control (RSC®). The latter feature uses two different types of technology to keep your grip tight on the road and prevent skidding or sliding.

You'll also have a standard rear-view camera on your side in this vehicle. Back up and park with confidence knowing that you have a clear view of what's behind you right on the standard infotainment screen. This feature also includes dynamic hitch assist which makes hitching your trailer to your F-150 a breeze.

Opt for several other helpful available features including Inflatable Second-Row Safety Belts which inflate when a collision or crash is detected. Upgrade your rear-view camera to the available 360-degree camera with split-view display. Like the rear-view camera, you'll have a clear view of what's around you right on your infotainment screen.

Active Safety Features

In addition to its many passive safety features, the 2018 Ford F-150 also offers a variety of smart active safety features starting with the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Coverage. The side mirrors will signal when a vehicle is in your blind spot while audible warnings will let you know when there's a vehicle behind you while you're backing up.

The F-150 also offers available Pre-Collision Assist. This feature, which includes Pedestrian Detection, scans everything ahead of you for potential collisions with cars, objects, and people. If something is detected, the brakes will be automatically pre-charged to make stopping easier. You'll also have Lane Keep Assist, which work similarly but scans the sides of your vehicle to ensure you're in your lane.

Another active safety feature you'll enjoy in this model is Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go. Like regular cruise control, you'll set a cruising speed and go. However, you'll also set how much of a distance you want to keep from vehicles ahead of you. When you meet this threshold, the stop-and-go aspect of this feature kicks in and adjusts your speed to remain the right distance away.
