Having to parallel park is something some drivers never want to do, as finding the right-sized space and then maneuvering into it can often be a challenge. However, with Ford’s Active Park Assist—available on select Ford models—you won’t ever have to stress out about parallel parking again.
When you are on the lookout for a place to park, activate Active Park Assist and turn on your turn signal to indicate which side you want to park on. The system will help you find an appropriate parking space and will alert you when it has found one with a chime and an on-screen message that will tell you to pull forward. When you hear a second chime, stop the car.
The system will then give you on-screen messages to tell you what you need to do. Once you shift into reverse, the vehicle will automatically steer itself into the space. You will stay in control of the brakes, accelerator, and gearshift, though you can take your hands off of the steering wheel.
