Default Am I missing something?

Have a 19 Limited, all the few options offered. But I do not think they come with front radar to help in parking, etc., Of course there is the front camera, but you have to turn it on. I also have a 19 Ranger with all the options, it does have the front radar. Just wondering if the Limited does not have it, or I am missing something to turn it on.

Nope, F-150s don't have front parking sensors.

So you could find a 10 year old Expedition with front park assist in certain trims but a brand new Limited F-150 canít get it? That is a fail.

Check the owners manual for how to operate.

The 900a has both systems your looking for. The radar for pre collision assist, adaptive cruise control and the 360 degree camera for parking assist.

If you prefer the beeps of parking sensors to a 360 Degree Camera system I don't really know how to help you. You also have to remember that the bumpers are steel. Compared to other vehicles in the lineup that have plastic front fascias. Half of the systems on the truck use the camera set-up in front of your rear view mirror in conjunction with the camera on the Ford logo in the grille. Like Msgtord said, check the manual.

Incorrect. Ram's have steel bumpers with park assist sensors on the front. If steel was an issue why does Ford have parking sensors on the rear bumper?

No...Correct HAHA. Because of the angles and thickness of the front bumper you cannot use recessed sensors. It was a design preference. The obtrusive sensors would make a $73k truck look cheap IMO. The sensors have a near impossible time going through a bumper of that thickness if they were recessed into the bumper. Look at early Tesla sensors under just body panels, they had a hard time. Again, it has a 360 degree camera and can park itself, so I am not sure why someone would even NEED that parking sensors on the front. The parking sensors on the rear serve three purposes; to notify you since the viewing angles are not ideal compared to the front, for Cross Traffic Alert, and Trailer Blind Spot. Since the truck has the camera system I believe Ford left the rear sensors just for the CTA and TBS systems, otherwise its redundant. Just my .02

I was surprised as well that they did not have front sensors. Seems like a fail to me. Most F-150s do not have the 360 degree camera. It would be really useful to me since I have to inch up to my garage wall and actually touch it to get the F-150 in the garage.

Now that I've had my truck for about 10 months with the camera system, I wouldn't take the front sensors if offered for free. The camera is a huge upgrade over the sensor systems, and I love the fact that I don't have to deal with it deciding to start beeping when I'm on the phone pulling into a spot.
