SmartGauge™ with EcoGuide
is an innovative new instrumentcluster that provides real-time information to help Fusion Hybridand Milan Hybrid drivers maximize fuel efficiency. The uniquedesign uses two high-resolution, full-color liquid crystal display(LCD) screens on either side of the analog speedometer that can beconfigured to show different levels of information, including fueland battery power levels, and average and instant miles-per-gallon.Growing leaves and vines track and reward the driver’s efficiency.
Active Park Assist
uses sensors on the front and rear of thevehicle, working in conjunction with Electric Power AssistSteering (EPAS), to guide the vehicle into a parallel-parkingspace. Here’s how it works:
The driver activates the system by pressing an instrument panel button, which enables theultrasonic sensors to measure and identify a feasible parallel-parking space.
The system prompts the driver to accept assistance to park the vehicle.
The steering system takes over and steers the car into the parking space hands-free.The driver still shifts the transmission and operates the gas and brake pedals.
A visual and/or audible driver interface advises the driver as to the proximity of other cars,objects and people, and provides instructions.
While the steering is all done automatically, the driver remains responsible for safe parkingand can interrupt the system by grasping the steering wheel.
Adaptive Cruise Control
allows the vehicle’s speed tobe set and maintained without using the accelerator pedal.The radar-based system also can monitor the vehicle infront (up to 600 feet) and adjust the speed to help keep ita safe distance behind the lead vehicle.
