What is Ford Pre-Collision Assist* with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)?
The Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking feature is a driver-assist system designed to help detect and potentially avoid frontal collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians.
How Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking Works
- If a potential collision is detected, an alert sound is emitted and a warning message displays in the message center.
- If your response is not sufficient, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) will precharge and increase Brake Assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
- If you don’t take corrective action and a collision is imminent, brakes can apply automatically.
*Available on select vehicles. Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking can detect pedestrians, but not in all conditions and does not replace safe driving. Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment, and need to control the vehicle. See Owner's Manual for system limitations.
