This includes, among other things, adaptive cruise control along with traffic sign recognition and an emergency braking system.

The electronic interior mirror is a nice feature. Of course, the instruments are digital, but only optional, as are the LED headlights on the redesigned front section. And Apple Car Play and Android Auto are available. The inside of the cab has been completely redesigned, including the steering wheel.
