Lincoln Safety Features

Lincoln’s 2017 lineup of automobiles consistently earns a score of a 9 or above from U.S. News Cars and five out of five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Lincolns are the safest cars of 2017 because they’re masterpieces of engineering and idle on the cutting edge of safety technology with both integrated computer systems and physical safety design principles.

From phone linking via Bluetooth to a thorough sensor suite that lets the car know exactly where you are so that it can best protect you in case of a crash, Lincoln’s safety features are optimized to keep you safe.

Sync 3

Distracted driving is a clear and present danger on the roads today. Using a Bluetooth connection, the Lincoln Sync 3 system allows you to link your phone to your car. You can issue voice commands to control your navigation system, make and receive calls and even have texts read to you.

This way, you can stay in touch when you have to and make quick navigation changes, if you need to, like quickly finding a gas station on a long trip or picking someone up on your way to a social event, all without taking your eyes off the road or your hands off the steering wheel.

Warning Sensors

Modern Lincolns are dotted with sensors that keep track of the driver and passengers in order to best protect them. Beyond basic functions like knowing whether someone is in a given seat and alerting the driver if their seat belt isn’t buckled, the restraint control module monitors exactly where the front seats sit so that they can deploy at the safest possible speed and pressure.

They also have dedicated crash severity sensors that kick in if the vehicle gets into a collision. These feed information to the onboard computer, which further helps the onboard computer deploy the airbags.

Safety Features

You can’t have your eyes on everything – forward, rearview and side mirrors, dashboard – at all times but you need to keep track of all that information. That’s why 2017 Lincolns come with a few useful features that you might expect like brake assist, traction control and a rollover protection system.

They also have a couple surprising new ones: a night vision system that shows heat signatures on your navigation screen, and a lane departure warning system that helps stop you from drifting into danger.
