Stop by our Columbia, MO car dealership and learn about the self-driving tech available in our new vehicles. While the technology for autonomous cars is fast arriving, it may be a bit until you enjoy a hands-free vehicle. However, with the state-of-art technologies available on new Ford vehicles, you can experience a high tech adventure. Plus, you’ll find a nice selection of used trucks for sale that offers advanced safety features at Machens Auto.

Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go.

Adaptive cruise control is a safety feature that plays off the classic cruise control that we’re all used to. To use this feature, drivers set their speed and preferred distance from the car in front of them. Radar sensors help adjust the truck’s speed automatically and can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop.

Blind spot information system.

Ford uses an advanced system called BLIS® which stands for the blind spot information system to protect drivers from hard-to-spot vehicles.  Plus, with the cross-traffic alert feature, a warning will flash if a car is passing behind you while you’re pulling out of a parking spot or driveway.

Pre-collision assist.

You’ll find this option on select used trucks for sale in Columbia, MO, as Ford introduced this technology on the 2018 models. The pre-collision assist function works with automatic emergency braking to prevent accidents. If a possible front collision is detected, then the pre-collision assist gives you an audible and visual alert. At the same time, the automatic braking function precharges for top-notch responsiveness. If an emergency, the brakes apply automatically and work to prevent a significant collision.

At Machens Auto, we believe advanced safety features save lives. That’s why we offer used trucks for sale with plenty of safety features along with a variety of new models with the latest tech. Stop by our Columbia, MO car dealership and find out which technologies fit your lifestyle.
