Auto Start-Stop Technology

Auto Start-Stop Technology

Auto Start-Stop Technology is standard on SE 2.0L EcoBoost® FWD models and can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving. When the vehicle comes to a stop and is idle, the engine automatically shuts off and then seamlessly restarts when you step on the accelerator or when your foot leaves the brake pedal.
Active Grille Shutters and Front Air Curtain

Active Grille Shutters and Front Air Curtain

The Active Grille Shutters help to reduce air resistance and can help increase fuel efficiency. When the Active Grille Shutters are fully closed, vehicle aerodynamics are improved by reducing airflow through the radiator. With the front air curtains*, aero ducts are positioned on the lower fascia of the vehicle. Air is guided through these ducts and forced out across the front wheel wells, creating an air curtain down the vehicle side.
Six-Speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission with Paddle Shifters

Six-Speed SelectShift® Automatic Transmission with Paddle Shifters

You don’t have to know how to drive a manual transmission or learn how to master a clutch to enjoy the sporty feel of shifting gears. Using race-inspired technology, the steering wheel-mounted paddles provide an engaged driving experience by letting you easily and quickly go from gear to gear without taking your hands off the wheel.
Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control

Available adaptive cruise control isn’t conventional cruise control. When its radar sensor detects traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. After traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the preset speed. This system lets the driver set distance, speed and the time gap between vehicles. Another feature, forward collision warning with brake support, can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display will flash on the windshield.
