Blind Spot Information System

What is Ford BLIS?

The Ford Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) detects when a vehicle enters a blind spot zone situated on one of the car's sides and alerts the driver through a LED warning light, in the corresponding exterior mirror.

How does it work?

Ford BLIS uses two high-tech multi-beam radars, which are mounted in the corners of the rear bumper. This allows the system to individually monitor each side of the vehicle it is installed on. The range extends from the wing mirror to about three meters behind the rear bumper and covers approximately three meters on either side of the car. The application has been engineered to become operational from speeds as low as 6mph, thus being useful in busy urban traffic and also for highway traffic jams.

Need more information?

The Ford Blind Spot Information System is available as part of a drivers assistance pack across most new Ford cars at TC Harrison Ford dealerships, except for the new Ford KA, the new Ford Fiesta and the Ford B-MAX.
