Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert10

Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert10 on the 2018 Ford Flex helps boost driving confidence. Radar technology identifies if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind your vehicle as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 13.7 metres (15 yards) away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.10


2018 Ford Flex offers Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support

Available Adaptive Cruise Control and Available Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support10

Available adaptive cruise control10  functions just like traditional cruise control—with one important difference. When the radar detects traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the set speed. Available forward collision warning with brake support10  can 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 and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
2018 Ford Flex Limited in Shadow Black featuring AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control)

AdvanceTrac® with RSC® 19

AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control)19 uses gyroscopic sensors to measure both vehicle roll and turning rates. Corner too quickly or swerve to avoid an object and RSC applies brake pressure and reduces engine power to help keep your vehicle under control.19  And it all happens in the time it takes to blink an eye. Available trailer sway control works with RSC to determine if the trailer is swaying. If necessary, trailer sway control applies precise braking or adjusted engine torque to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control.19 Trailer sway control is included in the Class III Trailer Tow Package for Ford Flex SEL and Limited.

2018 Ford Flex offers available Active Park Assist, which helps with parallel parking

Available Active Park Assist9

Available active park assist9   is designed to help make parallel parking a breeze. While driving slowly by parked cars, simply activate this feature and it scans for available parking spots. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and other parked cars. Once the right spot is identified, you’re signalled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. You control the shifting, accelerating and braking. 9
