As cars bulk up to pass the latest, most-stringent crash testing regimens, finding ways to bolster visibility from the cockpit has become more important than ever. That’s perhaps especially true when it’s a large, full-size truck you’re trying to position.
But the Blue Oval considered that when they went about designing the latest Ford F-150 light-duty pickup. One need look no further than the downward-sloping bottom edge of the front windows to gather that’s the case. That extra aperture area makes more of a difference than you’d think.
Of course, there’s more to the story, and Ford has put together a quick video to illustrate some of the other ways that the 2017 Ford F-150 pickup strives to endow the driver with sufficient vision to make placing the truck – and using it on the worksite – a cinch. The truck’s available 360-degree camera, LED box lighting, and LED side mirror spotlights all receive honorable mention.
Check out the video above to see how the 2017 Ford F-150 “owns work” with its savvy visibility-enhancing equipment.
