2013 Ford Fusion to get lane-keeping feature

2013 Ford Fusion Lane Departure

Citroen offered it in their C6 years ago, not to mention quite a few other higher priced marques, and now it turns out that Ford is putting a lane departure warning system in the Fusion in 2013.

Essentially what happens is that rear view cameras monitor whether the car is veering in and out of the lane and the steering wheel vibrates if the driver is falling out of their lane.

The system is not standard in all Fusions and will be offered as part of a technology package. Now that this feature is available to the average consumer, will it improve road safety, or does it merely speak to the decreasing driving abilities of the average consumer?

The 2013 Ford Fusion will debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show next week.
