New Tech: Ford Curve Control

Ford debuted a new safety technology dubbed Curve Control, which works to help the driver control their vehicle in curves.  Curve Control helps drivers when they enter a curve too fast, slowing the vehicle up to 10 mph in 1 second, by reducing engine power and using “smart braking” to apply brakes to any or all of the 4 wheels on the vehicle.

This new crash avoidance technology will show up first in the 2011 Ford Explorer, and by 2015 will be on 90% of Ford’s SUVs, crossovers, trucks and vans.  According to Ford, 50,000 accidents occur each year where drivers enter corners too fast, and this technology was developed to try and cut down on that number.
