What is Collision Warning with Brake Support on my Ford?

Collision Warning with Brake Support warns you if there is a risk of a collision with a red light-emitting diode (LED) heads-up display on the windshield and audible warning tone, which also mutes the audio system.

Watch the video above to learn more.

Warning System Sensitivity

You can change the sensitivity on the warning system to one of three settings, by using the five-way control on your steering wheel:*

  • Scroll to Driver Assist > Collision Warning > Sensitivity
  • Select either High, Normal, or Low

The most sensitive setting will detect stationary objects near your vehicle, while a lower setting may lead to fewer and later warnings.

*If collision warnings are perceived as being too frequent or disturbing then the warning sensitivity can be reduced, though the manufacturer recommends using the highest sensitivity setting where possible. Setting lower sensitivity would lead to fewer and later system warnings.
