Active Park Assist
Parallel parking is easy and quick, courtesy of available active park assist. It uses ultrasonic sensors. Simply press a button and the sensors precisely measure open spaces to find a suitable parking spot. Once a spot is selected, you control the accelerator and brakes, and your Lincoln MKS does the steering.
Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support
Available adaptive cruise control (ACC) functions just like normal cruise control, but with one exception: When the system is activated, its sensors can detect traffic slowing ahead, and 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, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake.
BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
Lincoln offers cutting-edge technology in the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert to help make driving more convenient. BLIS uses radar in the rear quarter panels to identify a vehicle entering your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to detect vehicles approaching from either side when you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. If it detects a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, it sends an audible warning, a visual display in the sideview mirror, and a signal in the message center.
Lane Keeping System
It happens at times to the best of drivers – unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That's when you'll appreciate your Lincoln MKS equipped with the available driver-activated Lane Keeping System. The system consists of (1) Lane Keeping Aid that applies a steering torque to help alert you to steer back to the target lane and (2) Lane Keeping Alert that helps warn you with vibration pulses through the steering wheel when it detects you’re drifting out of the lane.
