Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus (aka Adaptive Cruise Control w/Stop and Enhanced Adaptive Cruise Control) is significant for its capacity to bring the vehicle to a complete stop without driver intervention in certain conditions. Radar and video sensors identify the locations of vehicles traveling ahead of the vehicle. The sensors also help ensure the vehicles are separated by a gap determined by the driver. If the gap is dramatically breached, the ESC system can aggressively deploy the vehicle’s brakes to affect a full stop, even if the driver never touches the brake pedal. To resume travel, the driver need only press a button on the steering wheel or tap the accelerator pedal.

Um, okay which vehicles get this? My 2014 Overland shuts off at around 16 mph and tells me to take over. I have a new 2014 Overland on order. Will it have the "w/stop" option? Can I get this put on my older 2014?

There have been some changes to the system, which is currently undergoing testing in U.S. pilot models. No launch date is given for the WK, all it says is "mid model year". (the new Cherokee, which is launching now, has the feature).

Don't know yet if it will be able to be added to existing vehicles.

Thanks for the info. I would hope it is just software that is different and the older ones can be update. We can only hope.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

Hmmmmm.... Might be worth waiting for... but once the diesel is available, I'm not sure if I could get myself to continue waiting, especially without any idea when it will be available...

Well European models get it very soon, they advertise "with stop function" already, my dealer said it should hit september October deliveries, so I can't see the US being much far behind really..

I think I recall Milous saying something about a September press release for the 14' GC, so maybe adaptive cruise w/stop (along with other minor additions) might be in the release and then it's availability might follow shortly after.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

Just FYI, the new '14 durangos which can now be ordered and start production next month do have adaptive cruise with stop available. The blu-ray entertainment system is also available. I suspect (just a guess) that both of these items will be available on the GC when production starts up again for that model.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control Stop-go

I've got to say, ACC is one of my favorite features in my GC! I've only had FCW activate once, but ACC is something I tend to use every day! I'm curious if anyone knows if it utilizes only the radar on the front bumper/spoiler to work or does it use the camera on the rear view mirror as well?

From what I read in the manual today it sounds like it uses the camera on the rear view mirror as well. (It will warn you if the windshield is too dirty)

I saw that too, but wasn't sure if the camera really interacted with the cruise control... I'm curious now what it's actually doing! And how they ( camera and radar) work together... I'll do some poking around online
