2024 F-650 Straight Frame Driver

As the commercial transportation landscape evolves, so do the vehicles that keep businesses moving forward. The 2024 Ford F-650 Straight Frame promises to redefine the way we think about safety and efficiency in heavy-duty trucks. With a suite of cutting-edge driver-assistance features, this powerhouse meets the dynamic needs of modern commercial operations head-on. This powerful truck is one of the many great vehicles in  our inventory at Farney Ford in Selma, California.

Advanced Safety on the Move: F-650’s Driver-Assistance Technology

The 2024 F-650 Straight Frame boasts an impressive array of driver-assistance technologies that prioritize safety and intuitive operation. Adaptive cruise control, a standout feature, automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, reducing driver fatigue and improving fuel efficiency on long hauls. Lane departure warnings alert drivers when the truck begins to drift from its lane, while automatic emergency braking intervenes to prevent or mitigate collisions.

For commercial fleet managers, these advanced safety features translate to tangible benefits. By reducing the likelihood and severity of accidents, businesses can potentially lower their insurance premiums and minimize costly downtime. The enhanced safety and comfort provided by the F-650’s driver-assistance technologies can also improve driver satisfaction and retention.

The F-650 Straight Frame offers a range of advanced technologies designed to enhance safety and driver awareness. Pre-collision assist, powered by Ford’s automatic emergency braking system, helps drivers avoid or mitigate frontal collisions, while high-beam headlamps automatically adjust to provide optimal visibility without blinding oncoming traffic. Hill-start assist, standard on all hydraulic brake models, prevents rollback on inclines to ensure a smooth and controlled start every time.

Traction Control

Ford’s medium-duty lineup comes equipped with a standard traction control system that’s designed to optimize tire grip and minimize slippage during acceleration, regardless of whether you’re navigating city streets or off-road terrain. The system employs advanced sensors to continuously monitor the rotational speed of each wheel. When these sensors detect that one wheel is rotating at a significantly higher rate than the others, indicating a loss of traction, the system instantly responds by modulating engine torque to the affected wheel. This dynamic adjustment helps to maintain optimal traction and prevent excessive wheel spin.

The traction control system may also apply targeted brake pressure to further enhance stability and control in specific situations. With this innovative technology, Ford ensures that its medium-duty vehicles deliver reliable performance and superior handling across a wide range of driving surfaces, from slippery roads to challenging off-road terrains.

Forward Collision Warning With Brake Support and Pre-Collision Assist

The forward collision warning with brake support system monitors the road in front of your vehicle. When it detects a potential collision risk, the system alerts the driver with an audible warning and displays a message on the vehicle’s message center. As part of the system’s precautionary measures, the brakes are pre-charged, and their sensitivity is heightened to ensure optimal responsiveness when the driver engages the brakes. If a collision is deemed unavoidable and the driver doesn’t take corrective action, the automatic emergency braking feature can automatically apply the brakes to mitigate the impact or avoid the collision.

Lane-Keeping Alert

Stay focused on the road with lane-keeping alert, a smart feature designed to help you maintain your lane position, even during moments of distraction. The system continuously monitors your vehicle’s position between the road lines ahead and alerts you if you begin to drift out of your lane. If the system detects multiple instances of lane drifting, a coffee cup icon will appear to suggest that it’s time to take a break, ensuring you remain alert and safe while driving.

The Future of Fleet Management: 2024 F-650 Features

The 2024 F-650 Straight Frame integrates sophisticated telematics and fleet management systems that provide businesses with unprecedented control and insight into their operations. Real-time vehicle tracking allows fleet managers to monitor the location and status of each truck, optimizing routes and ensuring timely deliveries. Maintenance alerts and fuel efficiency reports help businesses stay on top of vehicle health and performance, reducing unexpected downtime and controlling costs.

Consider a local delivery company in Selma with a fleet of F-650 Straight Frames. By leveraging the truck’s integrated telematics, the company can track each vehicle’s location, monitor fuel consumption, and receive proactive maintenance alerts. This level of visibility and control allows the business to optimize routes, minimize fuel waste, and schedule maintenance during off-hours, ultimately improving efficiency and customer satisfaction.

Enhancing Driver Comfort and Control

For businesses that prioritize driver comfort and control, the F-650 Straight Frame’s thoughtful design can pay dividends. Well-rested, comfortable drivers are more likely to operate the vehicle safely and efficiently, reducing the likelihood of accidents and improving overall job satisfaction. By investing in a truck that puts driver needs at the forefront, companies can foster a culture of safety and support that benefits both employees and the bottom line.

Ford Co-Pilot360 Technologies

The 2024 Ford F-650 is equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies to help you feel comfortable and in control. Features such as hill-start assist are standard on hydraulic brake models. There’s also an available Driver-Assist Technology Package that includes pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, auto high-beam headlamps, and lane-keeping alert. These features are designed to help you be aware and alert on the road ahead.

Distance Alert

Distance alert, available on all F-650 and F-750 models, helps to keep you more aware of the vehicles in front of you. Distance alert monitors the distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you, providing a continuous graphical display representing the actual distance between you and that vehicle to help you maintain an appropriate gap.
