Benefits of Ford Sport Mode
Generally speaking, Ford Sport Mode delivers a more thrilling driving experience for the driver. It does this in part by shifting at a higher rpm than may be typical, meaning your engine may run faster than you may be used to.
On top of that, Sport Mode gives you extra braking on a wide variety of road grades. All of these features work together to allow for more spirited driving without taking too much control over your drive with high tech equipment that makes you feel like you’re not the one driving the vehicle. If you want to take things a step further, you can shift manual in Sport Mode by pressing the + or – buttons on the side of the gear shift lever.
