Dodge Charger: CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEMS — IF EQUIPPED / Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) — If Equipped

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / STARTING AND OPERATING / CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEMS — IF EQUIPPED / Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) — If Equipped

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) increases the driving convenience provided by Cruise Control while traveling on highways and major roadways. However, it is not a safety system and not designed to prevent collisions. The Cruise Control function performs differently.

ACC will allow you to keep Cruise Control engaged in light to moderate traffic conditions without the constant need to reset your Cruise Control. ACC utilizes a radar sensor and a forward facing camera designed to detect a vehicle directly ahead of you.

NOTE:

  • If the ACC sensor detects a vehicle ahead, ACC will apply limited braking or acceleration (not to exceed the original set speed) auto- matically to maintain a preset following distance, while matching the speed of the vehicle ahead.
  • Any chassis/suspension or tire size modifica- tions to the vehicle will affect the perfor- mance of the Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning systems.
  • Fixed Speed Cruise Control alone (an ACC distance not set) will not detect vehicles directly ahead of you. Always be aware of the mode selected.

WARNING!

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a conve- nience system. It is not a substitute for active driver involvement. It is always the driver’s responsibility to be attentive of road, traffic, and weather conditions, vehicle speed, distance to the vehicle ahead; and, most importantly, brake opera- tion to ensure safe operation of the vehicle under all road conditions. Your complete attention is always required while driving to maintain safe control of your vehicle. Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision and death or serious personal injury.
  • The ACC system:
    • Does not react to pedestrians, oncoming vehicles, and stationary objects (e.g., a stopped vehicle in a traffic jam or a disabled vehicle).
    • Cannot take street, traffic, and weather conditions into account, and may be limited upon adverse sight distance conditions.
    • Does not always fully recognize complex driving conditions, which can result in wrong or missing distance warnings.
    • Will bring the vehicle to a complete stop while following a vehicle ahead and hold the vehicle for two seconds in the stop position. If the vehicle ahead does not start moving within two seconds, the ACC system will display a message that the system will release the brakes and that the brakes must be applied manually. An audible chime will sound when the brakes are released.

You should switch off the ACC system:

  • When driving in fog, heavy rain, heavy snow, sleet, heavy traffic, and complex driving situations (i.e., in highway construc- tion zones).
  • When entering a turn lane or highway off ramp; when driving on roads that are winding, icy, snow-covered, slippery, or have steep uphill or downhill slopes.
  • When towing a trailer up or down steep slopes.
  • When circumstances do not allow safe driving at a constant speed.

    Cruise Control — If Equipped

    When engaged, the Cruise Control takes over accelerator operations at speeds greater than 25 mph (40 km/h) or 20 mph (32 km/h), depending on engine size and axle ratio...
