Function (continued) Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection* If your vehicle is rapidly approaching another stationary vehicle, a vehicle traveling in the same direction as yours, or a pedestrian within your driving path, the system is designed to provide three levels of functionality: Alert: When activated, a red warning light flashes, an audible warning chime sounds and a warning message shows in the information display. Brake Support: The brake support system assists the driver in reducing the collision speed by lightly applying the brakes. If the risk of collision further increases after the warning light illuminates, the brake support prepares the brake system for rapid braking. The system does not automatically activate the brakes, but if you press the brake pedal, the system may apply full force, even if the brake pedal is lightly pressed. Active Braking: Active braking may activate if the system determines that a collision is imminent. The system may help the driver reduce impact damage or avoid the crash completely. See the Driving Aids chapter in your Owner’s Manual for safety information, more details and limitations. Brake Assist Brake assist detects when you brake rapidly by measuring the rate at which you press the brake pedal. It provides maximum braking efficiency as long as you press the pedal and can reduce stopping distances in critical situations. Active Park Assist* Parallel Parking, Perpendicular Parking and Parallel Park Out Assist The system detects an available parallel or perpendicular parking space and automatically steers your vehicle into the space (hands-free) while you control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system visually and audibly guides you to park your vehicle. If you are uncomfortable with the proximity to any vehicle or object, you may choose to override the system. Parallel park out assist automatically steers your vehicle out of a parallel parking space (hands-free) while you control the accelerator, gearshift and brakes. The system visually and audibly guides you to enter traffic. See the Parking Aids chapter in your Owner’s Manual for safety information, more details and limitations. Driver Alert The system automatically monitors your driving behavior using various inputs including the front camera sensor. If the system detects that reduced driver alertness is below a certain threshold, the system alerts you using a tone and a message in the information display. The warning system is in two stages. At first, the system issues a temporary warning that you need to take a rest. This message will only appear for a short time. If the system detects further reduced driver alertness, the system issues another warning that remains in the information display for a longer time. Press OK on the steering wheel to clear the warning. You may switch the system on or off through the information display. All-Wheel Drive* All-Wheel Drive (AWD) uses all four wheels to power the vehicle. This increases traction, enabling you to drive over terrain and road conditions that a conventional two-wheel drive vehicle cannot. The AWD system is active all the time and requires no input from the operator. Dynamic Torque Vectoring* This feature uses all four wheels to power the vehicle and independently controls the torque to each rear wheel. This increases traction and handling performance. The system is active all the time and requires no input from the operator. Operating AWD Vehicles With Spare or Mismatched Tires A spare tire of a different size other than the tire provided should never be used. The AWD system may disable automatically and enter front-wheel drive only mode to protect driveline components if a non-full sized tire is installed. Adaptive Steering* The adaptive steering system continually changes the steering ratio with changes to vehicle speed, optimizing the steering response in all conditions. Child Safety Locks When these locks are set, you cannot open the rear doors from the inside. The child-proof lock switch is on the driver door. Press the control to lock or unlock the rear doors. It illuminates when you lock the rear doors. When you switch the locks off or on, a message appears in the information display showing the system status. The child lock setting remains on when you switch the ignition off. 2018 CONTINENTAL Rear Inflatable Seatbelt* The rear inflatable seatbelts are in the shoulder portion of the seatbelts of the second-row outboard seating positions. The rear inflatable seatbelts function like standard restraints in everyday usage. During a crash of sufficient force, the inflatable belt inflates from inside the webbing. This holds the occupant in place more effectively, reduces pressure on the chest and controls head and neck motion.

Note: When using a portable fuel container, do not use aftermarket funnels as they do not work with the fuel system and may cause damage. Instead, use the plastic funnel included with your vehicle. The fuel funnel is in the rear of the vehicle, in the spare wheel storage tray. Properly clean the funnel after each use or dispose of it properly. Towing Your Vehicle Towing your vehicle behind an RV or any other vehicle may be limited. Refer to the Towing the Vehicle on Four Wheels section in the Towing chapter of your Owner’s Manual for more information. Fuel Tank Capacity/Fuel Info Your vehicle has an 18.0 gallon (68.1 liter) fuel tank. We recommend regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum pump (R+M)/2 octane rating of 87. To provide improved performance, we recommend premium fuel for severe duty usage such as trailer towing. Do not use ethanol (E85), diesel, fuel-methanol, leaded fuel or any other fuel because it could damage or impair the emission control system. Tire Pressure Monitoring System Your vehicle has a tire pressure monitoring system that lights a low tire pressure warning light in your instrument cluster when one or more of your tires are under-inflated. If this happens, stop and check your tires as soon as possible. Inflate them to the proper pressure. Refer to the Wheels and Tires chapter of your Owner’s Manual for more information.
