Adaptive cruise control (ACC) (if equipped)  - Driver Controls - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

Adaptive cruise control is much like speed control, only this system is designed to automatically adjust your speed to maintain a proper distance between you and the vehicle in front of you in the same lane.

The driver can select from one of three GAP settings, the controls are located on the steering wheel.

At startup, the system sets the gap

At startup, the system sets the gap to the last selected setting. Once activated, the driver can deactivate the system at any time by either pressing the brake pedal or pressing the steering wheel ON/OFF control. In addition, the driver can temporarily increase the vehicle speed above the current speed by manually pressing on the accelerator pedal.
