The Car Connection reported Thursday Ford expanded the lively security expertise to even the bottom F-150 XL. Earlier than, patrons needed to step into the F-150 Lariat trim at a minimal to nab AEB. A Ford spokesperson confirmed the characteristic to Roadshow.

As the unique report factors out, the transfer makes Ford the primary American automaker to make AEB customary on its light-duty pickup trucks. The F-Sequence Tremendous Obligation nonetheless solely offers the characteristic as an choice for the bottom truck, although it is customary on all different trims for the beefier rig.

In actual fact, Ford acquired a hypothetical “most improved” award for increasing AEB throughout its car lineup earlier this 12 months. The Insurance coverage Institute for Freeway Security discovered the Blue Oval and Hyundai had been two automakers that dramatically increased the number of cars they equip with AEB. In the present day, 65% of Ford’s autos boast the expertise, whereas 78% of Hyundai autos do.

Because the tech continues to trickle into extra autos, proof continues to develop that easy lively security techniques create a serious impression. Particularly, if AEB, lane-departure warning and blind-spot warning techniques had been customary on all automobiles, the IIHS estimates the US would see 11,000 fewer traffic deaths per 12 months, a fall of almost a 3rd.
