Ford has already unveiled the updated 2017 Fusion, but one piece of new technology wasn’t announced when the new Fusion debuted earlier this year. Ford has announced that the 2017 Fusion will be available with adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology to help make that annoying commute a little better.
The new stop-and-go technology automatically accelerates and brakes for the driver while maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. The adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go allows drivers to set cruise control speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. The semi-autonomous technology can automatically adjust the set speed and bring the car to a full stop when traffic halts.

“When testing this system, we traveled to cities like Chicago and Los Angeles, heading straight for the worst possible congestion,” says Scott Lindstrom, Ford driver-assist technologies manager. “It was important for us to test this system under conditions the average driver encounters every workday.”

Ford says that the stop-and-go technology will be added to three other models within the next two years.
