What is Ford Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering?

Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering can detect lane markings that help you keep your vehicle centered in the lane.

Lane Centering only activates when all of the following occur:


  • The system checks for slight movements of the steering wheel to verify that your hands are on the wheel. When the system is active and detects no steering activity for a certain period of time, the system alerts you to put your hands on the steering wheel. If you do not react to the warnings, the system cancels and slows your vehicle down to idle speeds while maintaining steering control.
  • If it does not detect valid lane markings, the system stays inactive until valid markings are available. You can override the system at any time by steering your vehicle.
