BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

The available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert10 uses radar in the rear quarter panels to detect a vehicle entering your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror.

Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If it detects a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, it provides an audible warning, a visual display in either sideview mirror and a signal in the message center. BLIS technology is standard on Taurus Limited and SHO models.

Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start

Starting Taurus is a breeze, thanks to available Intelligent Access with push-button start. With the key fob in your pocket or handbag, simply open the driver’s door — no key is needed. Once inside, press the brake pedal and then the start button, shift into gear and go. Intelligent Access with push-button start is standard on Taurus Limited and SHO and available on Taurus SEL.

Lane-Keeping System

The available Lane-Keeping System10 includes both the lane-keeping alert and the lane-keeping aid. The system can operate during the day or night. Lane-keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic driving over a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure.

Lane-keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which alerts you to direct your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure. The system is available on Taurus Limited and SHO models.*

*Lane-Keeping System does not control steering.
