As the smartest F-150 ever created, the 2017 FordF-150 does a lot more than just tow heavy loads. Buyers will find a myriad of available technology features that help them stay connected on the road and help prevent an accident from happening.
With the available SYNC 3 system, drivers will be able to use simple voice commands to perform a wide range of tasks, from finding your favorite music or making a phone call, to navigating to a new destination (when equipped with navigation).
Owners can use the FordPass app on SYNC Connect-equipped vehicles to connect with their F-150 even when they’re not on the road. With this app, you can remotely lock and unlock the doors, track your vehicle’s location, check the fuel level, and schedule a remote start time.
Technology also keeps F-150 passengers safe. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert covers both the F-150 and any attached trailer. If a vehicle is traveling in the blind spot, then the outside mirrors will give a lighted signal. In addition to this function, the cross-traffic alert signals the driver when there is a passing vehicle while they are trying to back up.
