Ford Driving Technology - Curve Control


Presenting
• Curve Control is designed to help you maintain control of the vehicle when driving too quickly into a curve
• Curve Control will slow the vehicle down when it senses that you’re going too fast for a particular curve. Employing engine throttle reduction and four-wheel braking intervention, it’s always active in helping you maintain control around curves
• Curve Control is an enhancement to AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control)(1)

Demonstrating
• Reinforce the following benefits when on a test-drive:
– Curve Control sensors check 100 times per second if the vehicle is turning as quickly as you intend
– If the vehicle enters a curve too fast, the system reduces engine power and applies smart four-wheel braking to reduce vehicle speed
– Curve Control can slow the vehicle by 10 mph in about 1 second, which can help you maintain control of the vehicle and continue on the intended path

Delivering
• Remind customers that Curve Control — like AdvanceTrac with RSC — is a fully automatic system and requires no additional driver interaction to slow the vehicle down when it senses that you’re going too fast for a particular curve

(1) Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.
