Ford How-To: Adaptive Suspension
The suspension system utilizes an advanced suite of sensors that scan your vehicle and constantly adjust its suspension in response to changing road conditions to ensure a continuously smooth ride. Drivers can also select a drive mode based on the type of road conditions they might encounter, such as the sport mode, snow/wet, or mud modes, to help keep their Ford vehicle on the right track.
A Smoother Ride For Farmington Drivers
Certain Ford models for sale at our Ford dealer in Farmington take things one step further and include a pothole mitigation system in their standard CCD suspension. By analyzing multiple signals collected from high-resolution sensors, the vehicle’s computer can adjust the dampers to their stiffest setting when the edge of a pothole is detected, preventing the wheel from falling as far into the pothole as it normally would. This provides some protection from the jarring impact typical of potholes and can help lessen costly wheel and tire repairs. While potholes may be unavoidable, Ford’s development of an advanced shock absorber system marks a huge step forward in minimizing their effects.
