Driver Assist Technology
The welfare of the driver of the vehicle is just as important as the new freezer vehicle itself and Ford vans are fully fitted to monitor and assist the driver as he navigates to your destination.
- Hill Start Assist:
This modern and innovative technology is excellent for use in mountainous terrain. Sensors in the vehicle are used to detect when a vehicle is on an incline and the Hill Start Assist maintains the brake pressure for a set period of time as you switch from the brakes to the gas pedal. This way you are assured of not rolling back on an incline.
- Changing lanes: BLIS®(Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert warns you if it detects a vehicle in either of your blind spots while driving forward, or approaching from the sides while in Reverse.
- While cornering: When you activate a turn signal or make a tight turn with the headlamps on, cornering fog lamps can help by providing additional illumination to that side of the vehicle.
- Even when others drive: MyKey®programmable ignition keys allow you to place limits on the vehicle’s maximum speed, audio volume and several other settings to help new drivers stay focused on the road.
The low CO2 emission rate of the Ford models makes them eco-friendly. They emit 10-20 % less CO2 on a well-to-wheels ratio (WTW).
