What Is Active Park Assist?

Ford's Active Park Assist feature is available on select vehicle lines for parallel parking assistance. 

  • While driving slowly in the parking zone, activating Park Assist will enable system to look for an available parking spot.
  • Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and between parked cars.
  • Once a spot that's big enough is identified, the system will signal the driver to stop and accept the system's assistance.
  • When the driver gives the system light to proceed, Park Assist controls the steering and the driver controls the braking. 


Note: When using Active Park Assist it is still important to pay attention to your surroundings. At any time the driver can disengage Active Park Assist by taking control of the steering wheel or putting the vehicle into neutral.
