Ford is a leader in cutting edge automotive technology, and safety technology is a top priority. One available features is what Ford calls Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). This technology takes you a major step beyond the cruise control feature you’ve been accustomed to using. Activate ACC by selecting a cruising speed and the distance you want to maintain from the vehicle in front of you. When ACC detects traffic slowing down, your vehicle automatically slows to maintain the distance you’ve set. When traffic clears, your vehicle resumes at the pre-set speed. Included with ACC is Collision Warning with Brake Support. This feature is designed to alert you if it senses a potential collision with the vehicle in front of you. A “heads-up” display, simulating brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will pre-charge and increase brake assist sensitivity, providing full responsiveness when you brake. Adaptive Cruise Control is optional on many 2011 Ford models.
