2017 Ford Fusion’s Available Driver Assist Features

The new 2017 Ford Fusion will offer adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology as one of its 20 driver-assist features available on the 2017 Fusion. The 2017 Fusion will be the first Ford vehicle in North America to offer adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology. What is Ford’s adaptive cruise control with stop and go technology? By using dedicated steering wheel buttons, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology allows drivers to set cruise control speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. When activated stop-and-go automatically accelerates and brakes for the driver while maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The semi-autonomous technology can automatically adjust the set speed for comfortable travel, bringing the car to a full stop when traffic halts.  

According to studies on traffic, the average U.S. driver spends up to 1.5 hours a week stuck in traffic. Ford’s adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology helps reduce stress of the driver during traffic situations by allowing the driver assist feature to take over. This feature will be added to three new Ford products within the next two years, but will be debuted on the 2017 Ford Fusion which will be available this spring.
