When you consider what should be included in your next pickup truck, power, capability, and performance probably come to mind. However, one of the most important aspects to look at when in the market for a pickup is security. If safety is on your priority list, we think you should consider the Ford F-150 as your next addition to your family or work fleet.

This pickup has a variety of safety features ranging from standard airbags to cutting-edge technology. 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!

Exterior Safety

We all know Ford builds their trucks to be tough, and the 2019 F-150 is no exception. Its body was engineered using high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy, as was its fully boxed, durable steel frame. This material not only gives the truck a domineering appearance and ultimate capability when towing, but it also keeps those inside safe during the commute ahead. It is also resistant to dents, which is quite helpful.

Halogen headlights are also found on the outside of this truck as well as daytime running lamps and automatic headlamps with wipers. These headlights always keep your path lit to promote further safety and will automatically wipe the windshield off when it's raining.

The Passive Safety Features You Need

Ford always puts your safety first, and it is proven with their large variety of passive safety features that solidify your confidence behind the wheel. The 2019 Ford F-150 is standardly equipped with several basic but helpful safety features, such as front, driver, and passenger airbags as well as 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. The 4-wheel Anti-Lock Brake System and a safety belt for every passenger are standard in every Ford F-150 trim, as well.

You can also opt for several other helpful available features, such as the innovative inflatable rear safety belts. These seatbelts inflate when a collision or crash is detected to keep those in back secure, and they're great for smaller passengers like children.

Safety in Performance

Technology is all around in this Ford pickup, and it works with you to keep you safer on the road. The F-150 has a plethora of passive safety features, such as Curve Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability ControlTM (RSC®). The latter feature uses two different types of technologies to keep your grip tight on the road to prevent skidding or sliding.

You'll also have a standard Rear View Camera 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.

Upgrade your Rear View Camera to the available 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display and gain even more safety-forward perks. Like the Rear View Camera, you'll have a clear view of what's around you right on your infotainment screen. Then, it also includes a full view of your truck using multiple cameras on the exterior of your vehicle.

Active Safety Features You Can Trust

In addition to its many passive safety features, the 2019 Ford F-150 also offers a variety of smart active safety features. With the suite of advanced and intuitive driver-assistive technologies available with Ford Co-Pilot360™, you're set for whatever the road throws your way.

First, you have the available Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. 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 will also receive the Lane-Keeping System. This system works similarly, but it scans the sides of your vehicle to ensure you're in your lane. If you happen to veer outside the lines, it will notify you so you can correct it. It can even detect if you're doing this frequently and will shoot you a recommendation that it's time to take a rest from driving.

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 be on your way. 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 correct distance away.

Other active safety systems available include:

  • Hill Descent Control™ to help you maintain speed and control while driving down an incline
  • Automatic High-Beam Headlamps that adjust to oncoming traffic
  • Voice-Activated Navigation System that helps you stay on course

Towing & Trailering Safety Technology

The 2019 Ford F-150 makes sure that you're safe even when you're carrying large loads behind you, and it all starts with the BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Trailer Coverage. This safety feature helps when you're changing lanes while towing by alerting you if someone is in your blind spot or alongside your trailer.

Pro Trailer Backup AssistTM is also available. This system makes backing up while towing in your F-150 a cinch. All you need to do is rotate in the direction you want the trailer to go, and this system will respond accordingly.

The 2019 F-150 additionally is available with a factory-installed trailer brake controller. This feature helps synchronize your truck's brakes with the brakes on your trailer, so stopping is never an issue you need to worry about.
