Put the Cruise Back in Cruise Control with Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go

If your daily commute consists of highways or long stretches of roads, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop and Go could help make your travels less stressful.

ACC with Stop and Go takes the cruise control feature one step further by using a radar sensor and a forward-facing camera that allows the system to detect a vehicle directly ahead of you and adjusts the cruise settings accordingly, eliminating the need to manually readjust the settings.  Stop-and-go traffic is no longer a headache because the system will also bring your vehicle to a complete stop, if needed. If the sensor does not detect a vehicle ahead of you, ACC will maintain a fixed set speed for cruising enjoyment.

ACC with Stop and Go helps to:

  • maintain a driver-adjustable distance between the vehicle and the one in front of it
  • accelerate or decelerate the vehicle back to a pre-set speed once the vehicle in front speeds up or moves into another lane
  • bring the vehicle to a controlled stop and hold

ACC with Stop and Go is available on select safety packages for the Chrysler 300, Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Charger, Dodge Durango, Jeep® Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT models.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a convenience system. It is not a substitute for active driving involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road, traffic, weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead and, most importantly, brake operation to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury.
