It’s an exciting year to check out Ford vehicles, with offerings like the latest smart technologies, including wireless charging, cloud connectivity, and voice recognition. Additionally, you’ll see attributes such as largest-in-class standard screens and top-of-the-line driver assist features.
Here’s what to look forward to from Ford vehicles in 2021.
Ford Mustang Mach-E
Driving a Mustang is fun and easy, as the 2021 Mach-E features an updated Co-Pilot360 package that adds road edge detection and blind spot assist to its already standard pre- and post-collision brake assistance, lane centering, adaptive cruise control, cross-traffic alert, hands-free driving, speed sign recognition, and automatic parking.
Road edge detection senses the edges of a lane or road, while blind spot assist helps you avoid unsafe movements.
Additionally, in hands-free mode, an infrared driver-facing camera tracks eye gaze and head position to verify your eyes are on the road. If you’re distracted, you’ll see a visual prompt as the vehicle slows, if necessary, until you return your attention to the road.
The Mach-E features an electric battery with a 230-mile estimated range.
The 2021 Broncos arrive in summer, with models for all types of adventurers.
The Big Bend will be optimized for mainstream off-roading, with optional high-clearance suspension, trail control for off-roading, and trail one-pedal driving. It will also offer comforts like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated seats.
Black Diamond takes off-roading to the next level with standard rear-locking differential, steel front and rear bumpers, and heavy-duty skid plates.
The Outer Banks series will have 18-inch high-gloss black-painted aluminum alloy wheels, LED headlamps and taillamps, and an optional 12-inch LCD touchscreen.
Other options include the Badlands series for extreme off-roading and the Wildtrak series for high-speed off-roading.
Reservations are open for these popular vehicles.
The F-150 continues to deliver on performance and technology in 2021.
The XL, starting at $28,940, offers a 3.3-liter V6 port-fuel/direct-injection engine with 290 horsepower and auto start/stop technology. In addition, the included Sync 4 infotainment system — found in the F-150, Mach-E, and Bronco — helps you find inexpensive gas and open parking spots.
Upgrade to the XLT to take advantage of Ford Co-Pilot360 software or to the Lariat for leather-trimmed seats and a push-button start.
Connecting a trailer is easy now with the F-150’s rearview camera and its dynamic hitch assistant feature, which helps you guide the hitch ball to a trailer tongue, with a clear sightline.
This year’s Ford Edge boasts a newly standard largest-in-class 12-inch center screen with optional connected built-in navigation and conversational voice recognition, along with two additional USB ports to give backseat passengers access to device charging.
“Ford Edge is the choice for tech-savvy customers on the go,” Edge marketing manager Angela Cascaden said in a news release.
The returning Edge ST-Line will offer a unique ST-style grille, lower sport cladding, signature LED lighting and a priority on value over performance. Edge ST will continue to offer its specially tuned 2.7-liter EcoBoost with 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, so this SUV is outfitted for dynamic handling.
