Ford to Implement Adaptive Steering Technology

For Ford’s 2015 lineup they will begin to implement adaptive steering technology into some of their models. While exactly which vehicles will receive this technology has not been released, it is expected to most beneficial to larger vehicles such as the F-150 and Explorer. The technology will help the driver in maneuvering when driving at lower speeds and be more nimble at higher speeds. With adaptive steering technology, the amount of effort needed to steer will vary by the speed of the driver.Adaptive Steering Technology

“Adaptive Steering changes the ratio between the driver’s actions at the steering wheel—the number of turns—and how much the front wheels turn,” Ford said in a statement. “In traditional vehicles, this is a fixed steering ratio. With Ford’s new Adaptive Steering, the steering ratio continually changes with vehicle speed, optimizing the steering response in all conditions.”

The mechanism that controls the adaptive steering will fit right inside the steering wheel, which will make it less expensive and easier to apply in a variety of vehicles. In the video below you can see the difference this technology will make in simple maneuvering, making your reaction time even quicker than before.
