Does F150 have auto braking?

Hi,
Does the new F150 have auto braking where the truck will apply the brakes for you? , if not do we know when this technology will be available.
Thanks

If you have adaptive cruise control on, yes. Are you blind?

I think he's asking about Automatic EMERGENCY Braking where the vehicle will brake to a stop if it detects an imminent collision. Has nothing to do with cruise control.

I believe the answer is "no".

Technology like that is becoming more widespread every year, though. A freaking Corolla comes standard with it, hope to see it in the F150 soon.

I think the basics are there with adaptive cruise control. Should be easy for Ford to add this feature.

As much as i dislike making vehicles more complicated, I see this as mandatory safety equipment in the near future.

I wonder if a truck configured with this featre doesn't stop quick enough and you hit the vehicle that stopped in front of you, does that absolve you of any wrong doing ?

No, it does not. Fine print around all cars with this kind of system.

In most conditions, precollison braking is designed to mitigate a collision instead of prevent it.

Driving in Germany with an Audi A6 that had this feature, I was going 90 mph and had to wait for a gap in the left lane with all the cars passing me and I was approaching a slow-moving truck on the right lane.

The car seemed to think I was about to hit the truck and violently braked when I was already in the middle of two lanes and forced me to move back to the right after disrupting the traffic flow on the left lane.

In Germany, the right lane is usually at 60 mph while the left lane can vary from 90 to 140 mph but cars absolutely must return to the right lane after passing a slower vehicle at all times.

This feature makes the car more dangerous and I would not want that. Unfortunately, I could not turn it off.

Just like the keyless system on the 2008 BMW 740d I rented in Germany. Now, the car's smarter, but back then, I was 10 feet behind my friend who was right next to the BMW. My friend was able to open the car without having the key with him. Now, the BMW's smarter but sure wasn't back then. As of now, the braking feature is something I want to be able to turn off.

It was a legitimate question because some states are seriously considering allowing legally blind people to drive but have additional requirements such as having right side mirror and other things. Automatic braking could be one of the additional requirements.

No need to be a horse's *** over it.

I think they do have it, mine for sure has it. When I first got the truck, a car slammed their brakes in front of me. When that happened, the red bar lit up on the dash and the truck brakes were activated. I pressed the brake after the truck had already engaged it, so not sure if it would have stopped it all the way. It felt like it would have for sure; the brakes activated to the point that I thought the air bag was going to deploy lol
