Ford’s Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go is one of the most innovative technologies in Ford’s suite of driver assist technologies. In essence, Adaptive Cruise Control is a system that automatically slows down or stops while cruise control is engaged when the vehicle gets too close to a car ahead of it.
One of 20 driver assist features available on Ford vehicles, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go uses intuitive steering wheel controls to set the cruise control speed and following distance. If the following distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you is less than the following distance you’ve specified, the car will engage the brakes and slow down to avoid a collision.
After the car is at a safe distance or the driver has passed the car in front of it, the Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go will automatically raise the speed back up to the set speed and will repeat the process if the car gets too close to another vehicle in front of it again.
A More Pleasant Driving Experience
Even better, the Stop-and-Go technology allows you to stay in cruise control even while driving in heavy traffic and will stop the car and speed up for you while traffic creeps along. Cruise control isn’t just for highways anymore!
Ford developed the Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go technology to help alleviate driver anxiety and frustration during traffic-heavy periods and daily commutes. Ford’s statistics from Texas A&M show that drivers spent 6.9 billion hours in stopped traffic in 2014 alone. Now, with Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, drivers can drive with less stress whether they’re in tight city traffic or on the highway.
