2018 Ford Taurus with Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control

Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control19

Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control19 , standard on all Taurus models, are two components of AdvanceTrac® electronic stability control (ESC). Torque Vectoring Control uses the braking system to imitate the effect of a torque-vectoring differential. In particular, when accelerating through corners, it applies braking to the front inside wheel, so more of the engine torque goes to the outside wheel, which has more grip. Curve Control will slow your vehicle when it senses that you’re going too fast into a particular curve. Employing throttle reduction and four-wheel braking intervention, it’s always active in helping you maintain control.
2018 Ford Taurus with Electric Power-Assisted Steering

Electric Power-Assisted Steering

EPAS19 is powered by an electric motor instead of a hydraulic pump that draws power from the engine. EPAS can help correct for road irregularities and improve steering feel, since it is speed-sensitive. EPAS also features pull-drift compensation, technology that helps you offset vehicle pulling or drifting that can occur in crosswinds or on uneven roads.
