Ford How-To: Adaptive Suspension

While the road ahead may be bumpy, Ford has taken steps to help make your drive that much smoother thanks to its Adaptive Suspension system, available on select Ford models at our Farmington Ford dealer. With the goal of improving your vehicle’s driving characteristics, the adaptive suspension, called Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD), is fully automated and works in tandem with the Terrain Management System (TMS) for enhanced vehicle control on a variety of surfaces.

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.

Feel free to contact us at Ziems Ford Corners to learn more about what features are included in the available adaptive suspension system or to discover which Ford models offer this smart technology.
