Ford continues to innovate and expand on every aspect of its evolving fleet, from new turbocharged engines to hybrids that excel in the power, handling, safety and tech features categories. Ford has an exciting entry in nearly every vehicle category: coupe, sedan, crossover, SUV and pickup. Here are a few standout amenities available in several champions of the Ford fleet.
Ford EcoBoost Engines
Standard or available on at least 10 Ford models as of this writing, EcoBoost is ingenious engine tech that combines direct injection, turbocharging and Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (TI-VCT).
This trio of capabilities makes EcoBoost highly efficient on less energy, scoring an impressive EPA-estimated rating of 21 city/31 highway mph. This is the result of precise fuel injection that maximizes power output while TI-VCT and turbocharging minimize fuel consumption and deliver on-demand power.
Ford Co-Pilot 360: Today’s Futuristic Safety Tech
Ford Co-Pilot 360 is Ford’s ahead-of-trend suite of driver assist technologies. It debuted on the 2019 Ford Edge and Edge St and is now available on roughly 90 percent of the 2020 Ford fleet.
The suite makes use of multiple cameras and sensors embedded in the vehicle structure. The cameras and sensors interface with a master on-board computer to expedite emergency automatic braking in lieu of potential collisions, blind spot monitoring with side mirror flashes and audible alerts.
Other notable perks of the suite include lane keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alerts, intelligent adaptive cruise control, evasive steering assist and active park assist as well as auto high beams and hill descent control.
