Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support

Available adaptive cruise control* is a step beyond conventional cruise control. When its sensors detect traffic slowing, your vehicle also slows down. After traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the preset speed.
Available forward collision warning with brake support will alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness.

*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle.

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

Available BLIS®* (Blind Spot Information System) uses radar in the rear quarter panels to identify a vehicle entering your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If it detects a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, it sends an audible warning, an indicator light flashes in the sideview mirror and a displays in the message center. BLIS with cross-traffic alert is available on the XLT, Limited and Sport, and standard on Platinum models.

• Lane-keeping aid: Provides a directional steering torque, helping you guide your vehicle back to the center of the lane
• Use either the lane-keeping alert or aid — or combine them, receiving a steering torque first, followed by a vibration alert if you continue drifting
• Included Driver Alert System can detect erratic vehicle movements over a period of time, indicating possible drowsiness; coffee cup displays, signaling it may be time to rest
• Available on the Explorer Limited and standard on Platinum.

*Lane-Keeping System does not control steering. Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention. judgment and need to control the vehicle.
