Ford SYNC 2 lets you control your music, phone, navigation system, and climate control using simple, intuitive voice commands or via the 8" colour touchscreen. You can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying "I’m hungry", or access the Michelin Guide to help you choose and book. Wi-Fi connectivity is available via hotspots, with a USB modem. And Ford Emergency Assistance can automatically help call the Emergency Services in the event of an accident.
Cruise control that can adapt automatically
With Adaptive Cruise Control technology, you choose the speed you want to drive at and the system will maintain it.
If the built-in radar sensor detects a vehicle ahead, it will slow the car to maintain a pre-set distance. Once the road in front is clear, the system will accelerate back to your chosen speed.
Forward Alert, always looking ahead
This system can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front and may help avoid an accident. Radar in the front of the New Ranger detects slower vehicles traveling in the same direction, and provides a visual and audible warning if they’re rapidly approaching. If you don’t react and continue to get closer to the other vehicle, New Ranger will pre-charge and increase brake assist sensitivity, so even if the brakes are pressed lightly, they’ll automatically apply a harder force to stop you quickly.
Selectable 4x4 for any terrain
Choose 4x2 for regular driving, 4x4 High Range for poor road surfaces and dirt tracks and 4x4 Low Range for exceptionally challenging terrain. Using Electronic Shift-On-The-Fly you can also switch between 4x2 and 4x4 High Range, whilst on the move.
