2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Comes Standard with Adaptive Cruise Control
WESTLAND, Mich.––If towing your boat, RV, trailer, etc. seems like a chore, the new Ford F-Series Super Duty is about to change your entire outlook. The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty comes standard with adaptive cruise control able to handle a tow of 31,500 pounds or more! Imagine for a moment, with the touch of a few buttons that you would be able to drive with cruise control down an open road, rolling hills, and even flowing traffic, without putting your foot on either pedal. Now imagine doing that with a large tow? Sound pretty amazing? It is. Let's go over the details.
Thanks to the adaptive cruise control your 2017 Super Duty will be able to automatically speed up and slow down to keep pace in any traffic condition. The incredible F-Series Super Duty also comes with adaptive steering and Blind Spot Information System and trailer coverage. These technologies are a class exclusive available to pickup truck drivers for the first time. The Series actually comes with a giant list of driver assist features that any driver would love including:
-Adaptive cruise control
-Blind Spot Information System with trailer coverage
-Trailer Reverse Guidance
-Trailer tire pressure monitoring system
-Utility LED lighting system
-BoxLink with premium locking cleats
-Customer-placed trailer camera (Factory-installed)
-PowerScope power-telescoping and power-folding trailer tow mirrors
The adaptive cruise control, able to tow over 31,500 pounds, is the newest and most convenient driver assist feature included in all 2017 F-Series trucks. But how does it work? First you'll set the speed like you would with regular cruise control, then set a comfortable driving distance that lets the truck know how far to stay behind the vehicle in front of you. The truck uses a radar to sense the distance and speed of the vehicle ahead to then slow down or speed up accordingly. The feature will maintain the preset distance and speed above 20 mph until you turn the feature off.
Towing is serious business and drivers of the F-Series will have confidence in Ford's latest technology to make towing much easier. The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty comes standard with adaptive cruise control, although it is optional on the King Ranch, Lariat, and Platinum Super Duty pickups including the F-450. The 2017 F-Series will be available late this year, and built right in the U.S. If you'd like to check out all the stunning options Ford has to offer for your towing needs before the release of the adaptive cruise enabled F-Series, you can stop by our Ford dealership in Westland!
