Worried about those parking lot fender-benders or not being able to see what’s in your blind spot? Ford is taking action eliminating those fears with a new innovative radar-based feature called Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert on the 2010 Ford Taurus.

The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) uses two multiple-beam radar modules, the same used with Cross Traffic Alert, which are packaged in the rear quarter paone per side. The radar is able to identify when a vehicle enters your blind spot and illuminates an indicator light on the corresponding sideview mirror, providing a warning that a vehicle is approaching.

The Cross Traffic Alert System helps you avoid those accidents when you reverse out of a parking spot. The feature Cross Traffic Alert utilizes the BLIS features two multiple-beam radar modules and can pick up an object moving at up to 18 miles per hour within a 65-foot range from either the left or right side of the vehicle.

The Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert is also available on the 2010 Ford Fusion and Fusion Hybrid, Lincoln MKZ and MKT crossover and the 2010 Mercury Milan and Milan Hybrid.
