Torque Vectoring Control and Curve Control are two technologies that help the Ford Escape maneuver efficiently around steep turns. These systems only activate when they're needed, and they always make strategic changes according to the terrain conditions.

As the Escape cruises around a curve, its tire traction is important because it influences drift and control. Torque Vectoring Control helps the Escape conquer steep curves by moving power to wheels that don't have a great grip. When torque is transferred on most roads, the Escape's understeering risks are reduced. Curve Control works effectively with the Vectoring system. It activates when the Escape drifts around a curve very fast. To prevent a collision, Curve Control always decreases the engine's speed when the tires struggle to corner safely.

You can get a lot of great information about both of these technologies while visiting Lithia Motors, Inc. We have dedicated salesmen who explain Ford features before and during test drives.
