It’s cruise control, only better. This available feature automatically maintains a driver-selected distance from the vehicle in front of you — even during slowing traffic.

INTELLIBEAM® HEADLAMPS

This available technology automatically switches on the high beams when driving conditions become too dark and switches back to low beams when it detects another vehicle’s headlamps or tail lamps.

Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for important feature limitations and information.
