Safety Features

2016 Ford Fusion

  • Lane-Keeping Assist: A camera mounted behind the windshield monitors road markings to determine your position and detect lane departure, day or night. Should you deviate, steering wheel vibrations will help alert you, followed by an active application of steering torque if you still fail to respond.
  • Blind-Spot Information System with Rear-Cross Traffic Alert: Uses radar technology to ascertain whether a vehicle has entered your blind sport, and provides a warning light on the appropriate mirror. Cross-traffic alert monitors the traffic behind you while you’re reversing, preventing the likelihood of a collision.  
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Warning: Helps maintain a gap between your Fusion and the vehicle ahead. A heads-up display simulates brake lights when the distance becomes unsafe, and brakes pre-charge if you don’t respond immediately, helping to increase responsiveness for a full stop.
