14. Ford Adaptive Cruise Control with Brake Support
It wasn’t that long ago that adaptive cruise control with brake support technology was first introduced for cars. The tech is now available for trucks and SUVs for consumers buying new autos. The adaptive cruise control feature produced by Ford uses radar to monitor the road for vehicles in front of the vehicle at distances up to 600 feet. When the system is active, it will adjust the speed of the auto to maintain a preset distance behind the lead vehicle in all weather conditions. Unlike some of the older generations of the tech, the current version can ignore stationary road objects like signs and makes four distance settings available to the driver to use for driving on either the highway or local roadways.
