Potholes can do serious damage when driving, ruining your suspension, weakening the frame, and offsetting your alignment among other things. That's why Ford engineers have been hard at work making the new Ford Fusion more capable than ever when it comes to avoiding potholes. With the touch of a button, you can switch to an innovative sport mode, stiffening the suspension to give it a more athletic, capable ride.

Although it is impossible to miss every pothole, the sport suspension that will be offered on the new Fusion will come with an advanced computer-controlled shock absorber system. 

"The new Fusion V6 Sport substantially reduces the harsh impact potholes often deliver," said Jason Michener, Ford continuously controlled damping engineering expert. "Our new pothole mitigation technology works by actually detecting potholes and 'catching' the car's wheel before it has a chance to drop all the way into the pothole."

How does this system work? The continuously-controlled damping system monitors input with a range of sensors to detect potholes and adapt the suspension to prevent the car from dipping into potholes. Such potholes are measured every 2 milliseconds, allowing for constant adjustments and a truly smooth ride.

This is just one of many great new technologies Ford engineers have developed to make driving more enjoyable. When you buy a Ford, especially here at Pegues Hurst Ford, you get the latest and most advanced systems on the market.
