Ford Super Duty F-250 Safety Review
The Ford Super Duty F-250 is one powerful towing machine. This heavy-duty pickup truck offers shoppers outstanding capabilities on the jobsite. In this safety review, though, our team at Ford of Ocala wants to focus on the F-250’s attention to safety.
From engineering to driver-assistance technologies, there’s plenty to cover. Read ahead and discover how this truck can help keep you secure on the roads of Starke, Gainesville, and Ocala!
Ford F-250: Safety in Engineering
The Ford F-250 is built from the ground up with your safety in mind. It uses a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body that’s lighter than the previous version. This one is just as strong, though, and sturdy enough to handle the toughest tasks safely.
Meanwhile, the fully boxed steel frame gives a new meaning to strength. Built of more than 95 percent high-strength steel with up to 10 crossmembers, this frame is much stiffer than the previous one. In fact, it’s 24 times stiffer, to be exact!
With more than 12 million miles of testing, this truck’s body and frame has proven its performance chops. The F-250 has been tested at temperatures from -20 to 120 degrees, proving that it’s engineered for the extremes of even the toughest of jobs.
Safety Features: Seven Cameras
You’ll have more than one extra pair of eyes on the road in the Ford Super Duty F-250. This pickup truck offers up to seven available camera systems. No matter what the job demands on site, you can tackle the task more safely.
High-definition 180/360-degree cameras display all sides of the truck. You can navigate busy spaces more easily with this bird’s-eye view. Meanwhile, Trailer Reverse Guidance makes backing up with a trailer in tow much safer. It uses visual guides along the sides of the display to show you where the trailer is going.
A center high-mount stop lamp camera gives you a view of the pickup bed. Check it during your drive to confirm that all your cargo stays secure. Hooking up to a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch? This camera will come in handy for that, too.
Safe Towing in this Ford Truck
One of our favorite safety features in the Ford F-250 is the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System). It does much more than your typical blind spot monitor. You’ll have coverage of both the truck and trailer’s blind spots as you’re towing. It’s a safer way to tow your load.
AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and Trailer Sway Control comes standard. These systems use gyroscopic sensors to monitor the stability of your truck and trailer. They can reduce engine power and selectively apply the brakes to give you surer footing on the road.
