ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL OVERVIEW

WARNING

Adaptive cruise control system is not a substitute for driving safely, with due care and attention. Adaptive cruise control may not function properly under all weather and road conditions.

Do not use adaptive cruise control in poor visibility, specifically fog, heavy rain, spray or snow.

Adaptive cruise control is not a collision warning or avoidance system and driver’s should not assume that this feature will correct errors of judgement while driving.

Additionally, adaptive cruise control will not react to:

The adaptive cruise control system is designed to maintain a gap from the vehicle ahead or a set road speed if there is no slower vehicle ahead. A speed may be set at between 10 mph (16 km/h) and 112 mph (180 km/h). The set speed is displayed in the message center.

The system acts by regulating the speed of the vehicle, using engine control and the brakes.

  • Stationary or slow moving vehicles below 6 mph (10 km/h).

  • Pedestrians or objects in the roadway.

  • Oncoming vehicles in the same lane.

The adaptive cruise control system uses a radar sensor, which projects a beam directly forward of the vehicle to detect objects ahead.

To provide a clear view forward for the radar beam, the radar sensor is mounted at the front of the vehicle behind the grille.

  • Use adaptive cruise control only when conditions are favorable, i.e., main roads with traffic moving in lanes.

  • Do not use on icy or slippery roads.

  • Do not use during abrupt or sharp turns, e.g., traffic islands, junctions, areas with many parked vehicles or areas shared with pedestrians.

  • Do not use in poor visibility, specifically fog, heavy rain, spray or snow.

  • It is the driver's responsibility to stay alert, drive safely and be in control of the vehicle at all times.

  • Keep the front of the vehicle free from dirt, metal badges, or objects, including vehicle front protectors, which may prevent the radar sensor from operating.
