Available adaptive cruise control (ACC) functions just like normal cruise control, but with one exception: When the system is activated and its sensors detect traffic slowing ahead your vehicle automatically slows to maintain the distance you've set. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes at the preset speed. Collision warning with brake support (included with ACC) can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A "heads-up" display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield. If you don't react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake. Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support are option on Taurus Limited and SHO models.

Curve Control uses braking to slow you down when it senses that you're going too fast into a particular curve.
