We could talk all day about the curb appeal of our vehicles. We could talk about the smoothness of the ride, the responsive handling, the fuel efficiency, the best-in-class power of their engines (specific to the Chrysler 200 with the Pentastar® V6). But at the end of the day, what matters more to us than anything is the safety of our drivers.
It’s for this reason we go to extremes ensuring that the most up-to-date safety technology is available for Chrysler vehicles. We’ve written before about the SafetyTec package. Today, we’re highlighting another innovative feature: Electronic Stability Control.
In simple terms, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is a monitoring feature that comes standard on all vehicles in the Chrysler lineup – the Chrysler 200, the Chrysler 200 Convertible, the Chrysler 300, and the Town & Country. What exactly does it do? Specifically, it keeps tabs on steering input and vehicle motion. When ESC identifies a difference between the two – when, for instance, wheels begin to slip – it applies selective braking and reduces engine power, all in an effort to regain stability and to guide the vehicle safely back on its intended path, just where every driver wants to be.
