Ford Safety Features

When looking to purchase a new vehicle, safety features may be one of your main considerations. Will your new car provide you with any driver-assisting features? Will it protect you and your family from harm in the event of a collision? What is its safety rating?

The articles housed on this page will answer these questions and more, helping you decide which vehicle has the safety features you want on your commute around Middletown, Odessa, and Dover.

Passive Safety Equipment

Passive safety equipment includes standard passenger protection systems, such as anti-lock brakes and air bags. These systems are designed to keep passengers safe from harm in the event of a collision. Many Ford vehicles have earned perfect scores in both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and government crash testing, some even receiving coveted awards for their performance.

Driver-Assisting Technology

Many of our Ford models are equipped with driver-assisting technologies to help you navigate tricky situations on the road or in the parking lot. Unlike passive safety features, which keep you protected in the event of a crash, these features are designed to help prevent a crash from occurring in the first place. Some notable features available in many Ford models include:

  • Active Park Assist: This system helps to guide your vehicle safely into tight parallel parking spaces, a hassle that most drivers can agree to hate.
  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®): A radar detects when a vehicle is travelling in your car's blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror.
  • Cross-Traffic Alert: Watches for approaching vehicles behind you while you slowly back out of a parking space and provides an alert.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: A radar sensor can detect slowing traffic while driving in cruise control, and can automatically brake and accelerate to keep you moving with the pace of traffic.
  • Lane-Keeping System: Prevents swaying for your lane by providing a series of steering wheel vibrations when the system detects unintentional swaying.
