2011 LINCOLN MKS comes with technologies objective to creating life luxurious for each driver and passengers. A holistic strategy was employed to build these attributes, exactly where ease of use and intuitive operation had been essential objectives. Nowhere is this focus more apparent than with Active Park Help, obtainable on EcoBoost models and enabled by Electric Energy Assist Steering (EPAS).
This technology employs an ultrasonic-based sensing method, as opposed to video camera-reliant competitive offerings, creating parallel parking a breeze. Active Park Help activates at the touch of a button, figuring out an sufficient parking spot, detecting the edges of adjacent objects to calculate an optimized angle, and then steering the Lincoln MKS into the spot while coaching the driver by way of traditional throttle and braking inputs.In addition to finishing a parking maneuver rapidly, Active Park Assist also functions in uphill parking situations, as opposed to some competitive systems. Also working in conjunction with EPAS, Pull-Drift Compensation is a software-based technology that aids drivers offset vehicle pulling or drifting that can occur in steady crosswinds or on uneven roads. Pull-Drift Compensation makes use of sensors to continually measure the steering input applied by the driver to aid sustain the vehicle’s path it automatically compensates for slight steering input changes induced by environmental aspects such as road crowning or steady crosswind.
