2017 used ford fiesta for sale seattle washingtonThe 2018 Ford Fiesta will soon be rolling onto lots nationwide, including Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington. Offerings for the new subcompact include an upgrade 1.0-liter turbo-three that can top out at 138 horsepower - 15 above the current U.S.-spec engine - as well as all-new Pedestrian Detection technology.

Using dually processed information from a bumper radar and windshield-mounted camera, the system is able to distinguish road hazards, even in low-light scenarios. Drivers are subsequently notified with visual and audible warnings.

According to a recent Ford poll, 81 percent of surveyed drivers in Europe are scared of night driving; the number increases to 87 percent for women. In efforts to address this notable concern, the Blue Oval's improved Pedestrian Detection technology was developed and tested at night, using life-sized dummies as realistic road obstructions on closed tracks. Ford's team also tested the feature on public roads in highly populated areas, like Amsterdam.
