New Stop-and-Go Technology for the 2017 Ford Fusion
WESTLAND, Mich.––Ford has been making innovations to make mobility easier overall for customers with FordPass and new features in upcoming vehicles. Some of these innovations include the upgraded Cold Weather Package for the Ford Escape, Pothole Mitigation for the Ford Fusion, and Winter Wheel & Tire Package for the Ford Focus RS. Not to mention the new stop-and-go technology for the 2017 Ford Fusion making stressful commutes easier on the driver.
This new stop and go technology goes alongside the adaptive cruise control feature available on the 2017 Ford Fusion. In fact, this feature is just one of 20 driver-assist features on the 2017 Ford Fusion. This model will be arriving at dealerships this spring.
Did you know the average U.S. driver will spend nearly an hour per week stuck in awful traffic? Depending on your situation, it could even be more than just an hour per week. Ford knows this is a big pain for many drivers. While they can't particularly make the traffic any better, they can make the drive a little easier, which is where the stop-and-go and adaptive cruise technologies come in.
On the inside of the 2017 Ford Fusion, drivers will be able to set cruise control speed and the following distance from the vehicle ahead. Because it is a semi-autonomous technology, the vehicle will automatically adjust the speed according to traffic. If traffic halts, so does the vehicle. Adaptive Cruise tracks the road every 50 milliseconds with a radar and camera system, which in turn adjusts the cruise control to adapt to current traffic flow.
This entire system, with little to no driver action, can automatically and fully brake the car. The car also has features to notify drivers of possible collision situations. The entire system of features including Adaptive Cruise Control and Stop-and-Go can not only decrease the impact of a collision, but can also completely prevent a collision from happening.
The new stop-and-go technology and the 2017 Ford Fusion will be at dealerships this spring available with these features; however if you cannot wait and want to check out all the awesome features it has to offer now, we'd be happy to show you around a 2016 Ford Fusion.
