AdvanceTrac® with RSC® is Ford’s premium electronic stability system that improves vehicle control on all driving surfaces, including snow, ice, gravel, rain-covered roads, and dry pavement. The benefits of AdvanceTrac® with RSC® including increased stopping power, improved traction, responsive handling, and added stability. The system accomplishes this through sensors that monitor vehicle stability 150 times per second and corrects the vehicle’s path by braking one or more wheels to keep the vehicle traveling in the path intended by the driver.
The system’s yaw control can also sense when the rear wheels might slide out, and applies the proper braking force to reduce fishtailing and may even reduce engine power when necessary. Roll Stability Control (RSC®) offers increased rollover protection by brake and throttle control. RSC® monitors the vehicle’s body roll angle and rate, and then takes action to reduce power and start braking one or more wheels to correct the situation.
