At Wickstrom Ford, we’re proud to offer our customers a wide range of Ford vehicles that are specifically designed to protect drivers from road hazards. Driving can be dangerous, but behind the wheel of a Ford, you can enjoy superior peace of mind when taking to the pavement.

Of all the road hazards to be wary of when hitting the road, adverse weather is possibly the most influential. If you’re from around the Barrington, IL area, you already know that snow, ice, and water all play a huge role in the safety of your drive throughout the year. These road conditions can dampen the amount of traction your tires gleam from the road. Fortunately, with AWD (all-wheel drive) or 4WD (four-wheel drive), you can take advantage of greater handling and traction when driving in bad weather.

Other potential road hazards include pedestrians and cyclists. When driving on city streets and through parking lots and neighborhoods, those who are not in cars can cross in front of your vehicle, and if you’re not aware, you run the risk of striking them. Fortunately, with forward-collision warning offered in many of our Ford vehicles, you receive an alert ahead of time before a collision can occur. Automatic braking is an available component of this feature as well, which engages the brakes automatically if you fail to do so.

One of the most common road hazards you encounter on a daily basis is other drivers. Fellow drivers can be incredibly unpredictable, and in some instances, can even be reckless behind the wheel, posing a significant threat. Thanks to features like adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist, your car works with you to prevent a potential collision.

At Wickstrom Ford, we are proud of our inventory of new Ford models that contain a slew of driver-assist features to ensure a smooth, safe ride. Contact our car dealership near Schaumburg, IL as soon as today to learn more!
