Sync with MyFord, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and the SOS post-crash alert system are standard features on the 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat. These features provide enhanced safety and comfort for F-150 truck drivers and passengers.
The Sync infotainment system with the MyFord interface adds many features in one unit, including voice activated cellphone calls, audible text messages, more music functions, smartphone integration and GPS navigation. Music input options are 3.5-millimeter jacks, USB ports and Bluetooth. The system's enhanced safety features automatically place a 911 call and send GPS location information for emergency dispatchers when the airbags deploy.
The SOS post-crash alert system is another safety feature triggered by airbag deployment or safety belt pre-tensioner activation. This feature automatically sounds the horn, turns on the flashers and unlocks the doors for easier rescue. The system alerts passersby and first responders of the vehicle's location.
The AdvanceTrac system is Ford's premium stability control system. It improves stopping performance, vehicle handling and stability in many types of driving conditions, including rain-slick roads, snow, ice, gravel and dry pavement. The system has sensors throughout the vehicle that monitor its movements 150 times per second. When it detects driver control problems, it applies the brakes to keep the truck moving in the intended direction. The Roll Stability Control tracks the vehicle's roll angle and, in the event of a problem, reduces power and begins braking to stabilize the vehicle.
