Does the Superduty have auto Braking ?

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

Only if you have it on Adaptive Cruise control from what I have seen.

I do not think Collision Prevention does it. It does flash a bright red light though. It is called Collision Warning, not prevention.

On Adaptive Cruise yes for sure. Haven't driven a new SD without Adaptive Cruise, so I cant comment on whether or not they have braking built in. Different vehicle, but on my non-adaptive cruise BMW X5, it has braking built into the cruise function (whether you hit a downhill, or adjust the speed down significantly, it will brake).

From what I can see, this is how Ford explains it...in terms of the collision warning and brake assist:

"If you don’t react and continue to get closer to the other vehicle, your car will pre-charge and increase brake assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake, which may help you avoid an accident. Once your brakes have been pre-charged, even if you press them lightly, they’ll automatically apply a harder force to stop you quickly."

No brakeing with pre-collision

From my experience I have had the pre-collision light come on a couple of times when someone pulled out in front of me in my 2017 F350.
Neither time did it hit the breaks for me. But, when I have my Adaptive Cruise control on it will hit the breaks as hard as it needs to to maintain the
following distance I have set even if it requires a complete stop.
I had never even head of adaptive cruse control before I bought this truck but now that I have it I love it.

My experience is the exact same as Bill's. My Lariat will only brake when i am using adaptive cruise.

There are several curves around here that have signs on the outside of the curve that make my collision alert system go off.... the radar is apparently picking those up. I am glad that I do not have an automatic braking system that would slam on the brakes when that happens.

Only if you have adaptive cruise control and it is engaged. Regular driving? All you get is the warning light and tone.

One might also say real truckers shouldn't care about what their AC vents look like, but here we are. Real truckers like a nice rich, wood grain, yeah?

Touché!!! Actually Truckers and crows have one thing in common-we like chrome, shiny things!!
i guess I just miss the old round dash vents Ford was sporting for a few model years.
