New Stability Control Technology to be Featured on Focus RS

New Stability Control Technology to be Featured on Focus RS
BRIGHTON, Mich. - The third-generation Ford Focus RS will soon be available in markets all around the world, including the United States, and will quickly set a new benchmark for Ford Performance vehicles. The Focus RS features some the latest in performance technology and innovative engineering, offering consumers an enhanced experience out on the road and on the track.

There is an impressive addition to the new Focus that will actually be able to predict the future. Well, predict future spinouts that is. The new stability control technology that will be featured on the Focus RS can determine when a car meets conditions that may lead to a spin and then take the proper precautions to prevent the driver from losing control. The enhanced transitional stability technology will be a standard on the new Ford Focus RS, combining real-time data from sensors placed throughout the car that will anticipate possible spinouts by 100 to 200 milliseconds.

This is how it works: the technology recognizes the vehicle's speed, the steering wheel position, and the turn rate of the steering wheel and will determine if a skid or spinout is imminent. If the vehicle detects a risk, the brakes will be applied to the individual wheels to help the driver keep control of the vehicle and remain on the road. Since the new stability control technology featured on the Focus RS will be able to recognize situations that can lead to the driver losing control before it happens, the driver will experience a quicker, smoother, and more controlled "recovery process".
