Dodge uses adaptive cruise control in the Charger SRT, and partial cruise control in other Charger models and the Durango. Adaptive cruise control accelerates and decelerates automatically, and partial cruise control turns off at a set speed, which requires driver intervention.
Adaptive cruise control uses radar technology to keep the vehicle a safe distance from the vehicle in front. The Charger SRT has the sensor near the passenger side fog light, and the system works when the vehicle travels between 15 and 100 miles per hour.
Partial cruise control is another form of adaptive cruise control. Partial cruise control may use on-board lasers or radars to sense other vehicles. Laser systems are not reliable in adverse weather and cannot sense dirty vehicles. Most vehicles uses a single sensor, but some vehicle models have a multiple sensor system.
