Ford Technologies – Ford Hill Start Assist

When you buy a new Ford car from SMC Ford, you know it will arrive fitted with the most advanced safety features available. This is ensured with the inclusion of numerous forward-thinking Ford Technologies, including the innovative Ford Hill Start Assist, which is now a feature on several next-generation Ford models.

Designed to make starting and driving away on an uphill slope simpler, Ford Hill Start Assist is a key advantage for large vehicles and when towing heavier loads. By maintaining steady brake pressure for around two seconds, the system prevents your Ford from rolling backwards while you shift from the brake to the accelerator. The system is activated automatically when the vehicle is standing on a gradient of more than five degrees.
