2017 Ford Super Duty Adaptive Steering Technology
Adaptive steering allows the Ford Super Duty to offer variable steering gear ratios depending on the situation. Ford’s system can increase or decrease the steering ratio by up to 30 percent. This results in increased driver comfort at highway speeds and better maneuverability at lower speeds.
Ford’s adaptive steering system is contained within the truck’s steering wheel. The system utilizes an electric motor, gear unit and a small computer. When the truck is moving at lower speeds, the system will increase the angle of the front wheels. This means that the driver will have to turn the wheel less to steer more. At higher speeds, the ratio is again adjusted, giving the truck more relaxed responsiveness. The steering system also offers a specific setting for towing and hauling.
Technologies like Ford’s adaptive steering system are designed to give drivers complete control over the Super Duty. Systems like these make the 2017 Ford Super Duty the most advanced model yet. The 2017 Ford Super Duty is a truck that is ready for any challenge.
