Slightly better implementation than GMs. I have the feature and I have to do the shifting and apply the brake. Car just turns the wheel.So far it doesn't seem to be anything beyond what other new Fords offer. I'm hoping they add auto-park and auto-summon. I don't mean blocks away, just in and out of spaces. It would be an easy add as the car already does the park and unpark. The only difference is pressing a button on your phone instead of one in the car.
Right. I heard very similar sounds on every Mercedes I had for a test drive while using the automated parking.Those sounds were the rarely used friction brakes.
I've used it a few times on my C-max. Works OK, but a little slow.Never used it on my Ford Escape or Cmax. Don't want scratches on my rims.
That's the same as the C-max. Probably the main reason Ford uses the Rotary dial shifter now instead of a normal one.Slightly better implementation than GMs. I have the feature and I have to do the shifting and apply the brake. Car just turns the wheel.
I have use the first gen Active Park Assistant and now the new 2.0 in the Escape Explorer Edge and Mach E. It is a huge improvement!I've used it a few times on my C-max. Works OK, but a little slow.

You may be surprised but the autopark functionality on the 2015 model S was provided by Mobleye. The Mach-E driver automation is also Mobleye but a newer generation than the one on the 215 Tesla. So expect better.I've used autopark 100+ times on my Tesla Model S 2015. Worked flawlessly every time. Also used the Summon feature when it was available to park and roll it in and out of my garage. Just parked the car out front, and then opened the garage door and stood outside and parked the car through the app. When exiting, same thing the other way around
Might be a party trick for some, but for me it was really useful.
The autopark function for ordinary parking was easy accessible and made the parkering pretty much as fast as I would myself (most cars take way to long to use the auto park functions) so I use to apply it when in town and while the car was parking I prepped the "Parkfee app" instead. Since it did so good all the time I after a while didn't even bother to check when it parked neither have the foot on the brake or hands on the steeringwheel.
There is a good reason why Tesla is where it is today and why I still sometime laugh at other car manufactures and their attempts at electric cars. With the Jaguar I-pace is my favorite exeample of the ultimate of failure. They really totally missunderstod what the customer wanted.
Sidenote, I have ordered a Mach-E and truly think it might be the first model to really rival the Teslas in the areas where it matters.
How close do the rims get to the curb? That’s my biggest fear.I have auto park on my 2018 Escape. It's the variant that you have to shift apply gas/brakes. It steers. It does both parallel and back in parking. It does a great job with parallel parking - when it properly identifies a parking space. It will frequently fail to identify a parking space big enough for an Expedition. I have never gotten it to identify a parking space for back-in parking, so I have no idea if the back-in parking works.
