Re: Im in love with the ACC

I'm jealous reading how everyone is liking ACC, my '12 does not have anyone know if the option can be added?

No, you cannot add it from any practical standpoint

ACC = Adaptive Cruise Control

It's a radar-based system that controls your speed more intelligently than "regular" cruise control through it's awareness of what's in front of you. It has a selection of three following distances and if you approach slower traffic from behind and cannot move over, the vehicle automatically slows to maintain the distance you selected. Etc.

Ok, many thanks, I thought it had to be something else by the way people were describing it, oh well, dont have that option in mine, I guess in the 2014 export Limited edition that wasnt added.
Thanks again.

3 following distances. There are three buttons that control the ACC on the right side of the steering wheel. The far left button turns on/sets the ACC, the other two buttons control the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle infront of you.

I keep mine on the lowest possible distance (one bar) and find it to be plenty responsive. It keeps about a car distance or so inbetween vehicles. Anything more and you have people constantly jumping into that empty space thus causing your ACC to brake. You just keep going slower and slower as more cars fill the void.

Re: Im in love with the ACC

It will definitely ride ass, which kinda surprised me at first. My other vehicles with this feature would never get very close.

Re: Im in love with the ACC

Perhaps it's been updated to four intervals in more current model years. I find that three is sufficient, especially since mine is always at "1". LOL

Yup, the ACC w/Stop on my 2015 Overland also has FOUR following distances. The ACC System on my 2012 Overland only had three.
