What Are Ford Active Grille Shutters?

Ford Active Grille Shutters are special shutters in the grill that are opened and closed automatically to reduce aerodynamic drag while still allowing for proper cooling. The Active Grille Shutters are available on several of Ford's models, including the C-MAX, Escape, Focus, Fusion, and Taurus. When the shutters are closed aerodynamics are improved by up to 6%, resulting in improved fuel economy. When the engine needs additional cooling the shutters open to allow more air to flow through the radiator, and the shutters then close again automatically when conditions allow.
