Adaptive cruise control

Adaptive cruise control  - Overview - Lincoln MKT

Adaptive cruise control (ACC) is paired with collision warning because both utilize the forward-looking radar system. With a range up to 600 feet, ACC monitors and adjusts the speed of the Lincoln MKT to keep it at a safe distance behind a lead vehicle in the same lane, even in fog or heavy rain.

The scanning radar unit and control module ignores stationary objects as it determines the closing rate toward the vehicle ahead to assess whether it is necessary to automatically adjust the engine throttle setting or engage the braking system.

With the capability to work at speeds as low as 20 mph, drivers can set the system to work during normal commuting, helping reduce driver fatigue. Three programmable system settings are accessed through MyLincoln Touch.
