Phoenix Lincoln Dealer Sanderson Lincoln Shows Benefits of Smart Technologies
Sanderson Lincoln in Phoenix showcases many Lincoln technologies that help keep drivers and passengers safe and give added peace of mind.
By: Ryan Lewis
Lincoln drivers can have peace of mind thanks to technologies such as adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support. Adaptive cruise control allows the driver to maintain a certain speed without using the accelerator. The system uses radar to maintain the present distance from the vehicle in front of it without any manual braking. Collision warning uses the same radar to detect vehicles ahead. When an imminent accident is detected, the system alerts the driver with visual and audio cues. If no action is taken by the driver, the system will pre-charge the brakes and engage electronic brake assist to help driver stop more quickly.
Another technology that can help drivers and passengers feel safe while riding in a Lincoln is the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert. BLIS uses sensors to detect when vehicles are in a driver’s blind spot, and notifies the driver through a warning light on the corresponding sideview mirror. These same sensors will detect impending traffic and warn the driver when slowly backing up.
Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support is available on the 2012 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost. BLIS with cross-traffic alert is optional on the 2012 Lincoln MKZ and 2012 Lincoln MKT EcoBoost, all of which are currently on sale at Sanderson Lincoln.
