Curve Control and Torque Vectoring Control

Curve Control can sense if you're going too fast and slow the vehicle down using throttle reduction and anti-lock braking. Once you're into the curve, G-forces tend to transfer more traction to the outside tires than to the inside ones. Torque Vectoring Control enhances this traction by transferring torque to the wheels that have the most grip, reducing understeer and forcing the front end to hug the inside of the curve.

Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Liftgate

Thanks to the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate, there's no need to fumble for keys. Its hands-free operation is especially helpful when your arms are full of items like grocery bags. With the Intelligent Access key in your pocket or purse, kick your foot under the bumper and the liftgate opens. You can also adjust the liftgate height, helpful for lower overhangs. Standard on Titanium model.

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

The Ford Safe and Smart™ Package includes BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert. This feature uses radar to identify a vehicle detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to detect a vehicle passing behind when you're slowly backing out of a driveway or parking place, but only when a trailer is not connected to the vehicle. If crosstraffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.

Cargo Capacity

Fold both rear seat backs for a flat load surface and up to 68 cu. ft. of total cargo space. Or fold down either of the 60/40 split rear seat backs and still have room for a passenger. If you're carrying items such as luggage, leave both seat backs up and you'll have 34 cu. ft. of cargo space. For more space, available roof-rack side rails with available crossbars* let you carry more cargo, especially items that don't transport easily inside the vehicle.
