Ford Co-Pilot360™ Will Be Standard on Many Ford Cars by 2020


As Indianapolis, IN Ford dealers, we couldn’t be happier to tell you that Ford Co-Pilot360™ will be standard on a lot of Ford vehicles by 2020. More specifically, the Ford brand expects the suite of advanced safety and driver-assist features to be standard equipment on 91 percent of the automobiles it produces by 2020. The 2019 Ford Edge and the 2019 Ford Edge ST will be the first cars outfitted with Ford Co-Pilot360™ when they hit Ford dealerships throughout North America in the fall of 2018.

The automaker we represent describes Ford Co-Pilot360™ as “the most advanced suite of standard driver-assist technologies among full-line brands.” As such, the bundle of features is meant to help drivers be more confident behind the wheel.

Ford Co-Pilot360™ includes sought-after safety and driver-assist features, which include the following:

  •         Automatic braking with pedestrian detection
  •         Blind spot information system
  •         Lane keeping system
  •         Rearview camera
  •         Automatic high beams
  •         Adaptive cruise control with stop and go and lane centering
  •         Evasive steering assist and post-collision steering

While that’s an impressive list of existing features, the Ford brand plans to add more features as new ones are developed. In 2019, the car maker intends to add reverse brake assist with AEB to Ford Co-Pilot360™. This feature will help drivers avoid hitting objects when they’re backing up their vehicles.

“Though our vehicles today are safer than ever, drivers tell us they are still stressed about getting in a potential accident,” said Jim Farley, Ford president, Global Markets. “That’s one reason why we’re making these must-have technologies accessible to millions of customers each year.”
