While all Ford vehicles are great to drive, some are a little bit easier to maneuver than others. While the Ford F150 is a great truck, the size might be overwhelming for a new driver. Even if it is one of the safest trucks on the road, here at Henry Day Ford in West Valley City, Utah we want to make sure to help you find the best Ford car for you—even if you’re new to the road.
The Fusion is a great car for new drivers. It is small and easy to maneuver. Not only is it easy to maneuver, it also comes with pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, keeping everyone driving on Utah roads safe. The vehicle alerts the driver when cars in front of you are slowing down; if the driver does not take action and a crash is imminent, the vehicle will brake on its own.
The Focus might just be the best Ford on which to learn to drive. The Focus keeps watch over you and your family, helping to keep everyone on Utah roads safe. Some of these features include active park assist, a lane-keeping system and a reverse sensing system. The electric version even has an app that helps you monitor the charge of the car while you’re away from the vehicle.
While the F150 is very large — and trucks can be known to be very hard first vehicles, since the turn radius is not nearly the same as it is on a Focus or Fusion — the F150 is a very safe truck, with five-star overall crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration along with duel-stage airbags.
While we argue every Ford is a great vehicle to learn to drive in, some are admittedly easier to learn in than others. The Focus and Fusion are great smaller vehicles to learn to drive in, and both can actively help drivers avoid accidents. The F150 is a great for those who want to learn in a truck, since it is one of the safest trucks on the road today.
