  • Pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection technology. The 2017 Ford Fusion can detect vehicles and pedestrians. If your Ford Fusion detects a potential collision it has three collision prevention stages. First, it will mute the stereo and alert the driver with an audible chime and the flashing of red lights in the heads-up display. Second, the brakes precharge so that the brake pad is closer to the rotor, increasing brake sensitivity. Third, the brakes can automatically engage in an effort to prevent the collision.
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop and go. The 2017 Ford Fusion’s new adaptive cruise control with stop and go technology allows for you to set your cruise control and take your feet off the pedals. As you drive through traffic, the vehicle will automatically speed up to the preset speed and when traffic picks up, it will slow down to a complete stop if necessary.
  • The 2017 Ford Fusion comes with Sync 3. Sync 3 is an all new infotainment system with a more modern eight-inch LCD touch screen display. To make it even smarter, Sync Connect seamlessly works with your smartphone to utilize music, navigation and messaging, all while never taking your eyes off the road.
  • Drive more efficiently. Harnessing our competitive nature, Ford makes driving efficiently a simple game. What makes the efficiency leaves grow? Accelerating and braking smoothly, not driving aggressively and keeping your finger off the sport button. The more leaves you have the better you are doing. Ford also implemented engine efficiency for city driving. When you are stopped in traffic, the engine shuts off and when traffic moves forward the engine automatically starts!

New Ford Fusion offers stop-and-go tech to relieve stressful travel

Commuters, rejoice! Ford is introducing a new driver-assist technology that will make your morning drive a lot less stressful. Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology – designed to take the edge off driving in heavy traffic – is available in the 2017 Ford Fusion.

The semi-autonomous technology makes use of a sophisticated radar-and-camera based system to accelerate and break for the driver – all while maintaining a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead, bringing the car to a complete stop when traffic freezes.

Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go is just one of 20 driver-assist options for the new 2017 Ford Fusion available this spring.
