stop and go and adaptive cruise control are 2 different technologies which may or may not work together.

Stop and Go is seen on most hybrid cars and it involves the stopping of the fossil fuel powered engine after the car has been stationary for some time, while in gear (drive). Once the gas pedal is pressed the engine comes to life and you can depart. This was touted for the 2014s but we did not get it in America.

Adaptive Cruise Control is the system that keeps the distance to the car ahead constant, the car will accelerate or brake the car on its own. We have that and yes it is wonderful, especially since for the 2014s, there is a related feature: Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking that makes use of the same sensors/hardware. Ours deactivates under 20 mph.

I could be wrong, but I think both stop and go as well as bringing the car to a complete stop is a matter of reprogramming not so much of hardware upgrades. But I could be wrong.

Stop and Go - fuel saver
ACC - safety feature
The fuel saver technology you're talking about is actually called "stop start" or "start stop".

Cruise control that comes to a complete stop automatically is called, by Chrysler, Adaptive cruise control with stop. Audi and other manufactures call it "Adaptive cruise with stop and go" BMW call it "Active cruise control with stop n' go".. :-)

It's sound similar to "stop start" but it's different. :-)

So crazy that the Europeans get all the real car Tech before North America

People there also get these advancements in entry level cars.

This feature should be in the 2014s.

Another reason I'm not going to trade my 2012.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

I have the ACC and it brings the Jeep to a full stop and takes off again, this was on the highway where traffic had slowed then stopped then back to highway speed. I have only used it on the highway not around town. Is the new feature for around town traffic?

Nope, thanks for answering, that is exactly how it should work

People in Europe and here in the US also pay a kings ransom to have the latest features in their vehicles. There are enough electrical gremlins on the 2014 WK2's, we don't need any more.

Well you have remember that, Jeep wants to compete and take on the big boys.. European cars sell best in Europe with offerings from Mercedes, BMW etc etc, and not to mention the Japanese car manufactures already have a firm marketing share in Europe, and if you look at the technology offering from these manufactures, they surpass the American competition.

However when it comes to American vehicle's they are not to hot in Europe, because of the stigma which is or was attached to these vehicles . Obviously things are changing and looking up for American cars in Europe though. You have to take into consideration that every feature added to the car jacks the price up soo there's always a trade off, I think in Europe we just have a little more leeway:-)

On another note you have the price factor to take into consideration. The jeep in Europe cost €71,000, UK is cheapest at €55,00 for summit model, which is a lot.. So they have to offer what people want and if the vehicle for that price doesn't have the technology gizmos to match European buyers will go elsewhere.. Simple as!:-)

Most car manufactures now are offering super modern technology in their cars to keep ahead of the game, the Kia SUV now parks itself I believe :-)

Adaptive cruise control is still uncommon in Europe cars, but more popular in more higher end cars though.

On my jeep the ACC kicks out at 15 miles per hour and I have to do the stop manually and take back off. Are you saying that your jeep will come to a complete stop. Then when traffic starts moving it takes off again.

Yes, it will come to a complete stop then take back off again. I had the cruise set at 75 on the highway it started slowing and then stopped.
I have never tried it around town and honestly I was nervous on the highway and had my foot right near the brake incase it didn't work.

Am I the only one who has a jeep that ACC quits working when it goes below 15 miles per hour?

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

No, you're not. Mine doesn't either. And the owner's manual also confirms that this is not how it's supposed to operate (shutting off below 15 mph). I'm not really sure why JoeD's Jeep will do this. Joe...you're in Massachusetts? And it's a U.S.-spec vehicle?

Hmm that a new discovery.. You sure it comes to a complete stop without human intervention?
