Driver Awareness

2016 Ford Taurus SEL Front Interior in Charcoal Black

The 2016 Ford Taurus is packed with the most advanced Ford technology that keeps you aware and alert of your surroundings, helping to prevent crashes and collisions before they're a problem. Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support lets you set your following distance from the car ahead of you. If the sonar cameras detect that you're getting too close to the other car, you'll get an alert to slow down and brake pressure applied so you can slow or stop without a collision. When traffic speeds up, your car will as well.

 

The Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert uses special cameras to determine when there is a car or other obstacle in your blind spot or coming towards you from the back. The Lane-Keeping System uses special cameras to determine where you are in your lane and alerts you or sends steering torque to the wheels to keep you in your lane if you begin to drift without signaling. Active Park Assist helps you steer into a parking space using special ultrasound cameras, letting the car do the work while you shift gears and brake. Finally, you'll get a standard rearview camera on every Taurus.

 

Control

The 2016 Ford Taurus has been engineered with features and systems that keep you in control of your drive even on the most difficult roads around Schaumburg. Torque Vectoring Control with Curve Control is standard on every version of the Taurus. It uses the braking system to apply brake pressure to the front inside wheel when you go around a curve, sending more torque to the wheel with the most grip and automatically slowing your car when you're going around a tight curve that might prove dangerous via braking intervention and throttle reduction. The AdvanceTrac system uses gyroscopic sensors to detect if you're rolling or yawing, helping to re-balance your Taurus so you can keep on track-even on slippery or difficult terrain.

 

Protection

The 2016 Ford Taurus is stocked with features that help keep you protected even if you're in a collision. Front seat side airbags and the Safety Canopy system cushion you with airbags on the side, as well as a rollover sensor that deploys airbags to keep you safe in case of dangerous pressure from the sides of the car. The Side Protection and Cabin Enhancement architecture means your Taurus is built with a body and frame designed to absorb the energy induced during a collision to keep you safe.
