Keep reading to learn more about Ford vehicles’ top safety features that help ensure your family’s safety and well-being.

Enhanced Child Seat Anchors

Ford vehicles come equipped with the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system, which provides secure attachment points for child safety seats. These anchors make installing and securing child seats easier and more reliable, minimizing the risk of improper installation.

Rearview Camera and Parking Sensors

Parking can be challenging, especially when you have children in the car. Ford vehicles often come with a rearview camera and parking sensors that assist drivers in maneuvering their vehicles safely. The rearview camera provides a clear view of the surroundings, while the parking sensors alert the driver to any obstacles, reducing the chances of accidents.

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™

Ford’s AdvanceTrac® system continuously monitors vehicle dynamics and applies selective braking to help maintain control. Combined with Roll Stability Control™, this feature detects and helps prevent potential rollovers. It helps ensure the stability and safety of the vehicle, especially when carrying precious cargo like children.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning

Ford’s Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning uses radar technology to adjust your vehicle’s speed automatically and maintain a safe distance. It also alerts the driver if a potential collision is detected, giving them time to react and avoid an accident.

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®)

Changing lanes becomes safer and more convenient with Ford’s Blind Spot Information System. This system uses sensors to detect vehicles in your blind spots and alert you with visual or audible warnings. This feature is particularly useful when you have children in the backseat, as it reduces the risk of collisions during lane changes.


Ford’s MyKey® technology allows parents to set certain vehicle limitations and restrictions when their children are behind the wheel. Parents can program a restricted driving mode, set speed limits, and limit the audio system’s volume. This feature helps promote responsible driving habits and enhances the safety of young drivers.

SOS Post-Crash Alert System™

In the unfortunate event of an accident, Ford’s SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ comes to the rescue. This system automatically activates the vehicle’s horn and hazard lights to alert nearby drivers and pedestrians, potentially saving lives.

Ford Co-Pilot360™

Ford Co-Pilot360™ is an innovative and comprehensive safety suite that equips Ford vehicles with advanced technologies to enhance driver awareness and avoid potential accidents. This robust system includes features such as Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, which detects and warns of potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians and can even apply the brakes if necessary.


The Lane-Keeping System helps prevent unintentional drifting by providing steering assistance. At the same time, the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert notifies drivers of vehicles in their blind spots or approaching from the sides.
