Adaptive cruise control is not a substitute for driving safely, with due care and attention. Driving without due care and attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.


Adaptive cruise control may not function properly under all weather and road conditions. Do not use adaptive cruise control in poor visibility, specifically fog, heavy rain, spray or snow. Using adaptive cruise control in these conditions increases the risk of loss of control of the vehicle.


Adaptive cruise control is not a collision warning or avoidance system. The driver should not assume that the feature will correct errors of judgement while driving.


Adaptive cruise control does not react to pedestrians or objects in the roadway. Additionally, adaptive cruise control does not react to:

- Stationary or slow moving vehicles traveling below 6 mph (10 km/h).

- Oncoming vehicles in the same lane.

Adaptive cruise control is designed to maintain a gap from the vehicle ahead, or a set road speed if there is no slower vehicle ahead. A speed can be set at between 20 mph (32 km/h) and 112 mph (180 km/h).


For vehicles with a 3.0L engine, the upper speed limit is 124 mph (200 km/h).

The system acts by regulating the speed of the vehicle using engine control and the brakes.

Adaptive cruise control uses a radar sensor, which projects a beam directly forward of the vehicle to detect objects ahead.

The radar sensor is mounted behind the badge in the center of the front grille. The sensor provides a clear view forward for the radar beam.


Make sure that this area is kept clean and free from obstructions, e.g., stickers, debris, mud, snow, ice, etc.

Before using adaptive cruise control, make sure to read and understand the following:

  • Only use adaptive cruise control when the conditions are favorable. For example, on major roads with traffic moving in lanes.

  • Do not use adaptive cruise control on icy or slippery roads.

  • Staying alert, driving safely, and being in control of the vehicle at all times is the responsibility of the driver.

  • Do not use adaptive cruise control during abrupt or sharp turns. For example, traffic medians, junctions, areas with many parked vehicles, or areas shared with pedestrians.
