What is Dynamic Cruise Control

Just like the flux capacitor in "Back to the Future," the Lexus Dynamic Cruise Control uses a particular system to give you this smart driver technology. It won't take you back in time, but it will keep you back from the car in front of you and prevent an accident. It uses grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera to maintain a set distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Working together, these two technologies form the whole of Dynamic Cruise Control on Lexus vehicles.

How to Use Lexus Dynamic Cruise Control

Many vehicles come with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control as a driver-assist feature. Among them are the Lexus RX L, CT, and NX. For a full list, see Lexus's official website or ask us if it's installed on the model you want to buy. Your steering wheel mounted cruise control buttons are clearly marked and should be able for you to see. You'll use these buttons to set your dynamic cruise control distance from the vehicle in front of you, and your Lexus will automatically use its radar and camera team to monitor distance from the vehicle in front of you.

If you get too close, the system will intelligently put on the brakes so that you maintain that set distance. Imagine having a cruise control option that even brakes for you when necessary. That's the kind of power that Lexus is equipping its vehicles with these days. Dynamic Cruise Control is on the majority of Lexus vehicles in 2019, but you can also have it added as a package if by any chance a certain trim doesn't come with the technology. Always be sure to ask us about driver packages that include a bulk number of features for a flat rate price. These are the packages that round out the perfection of your Lexus trim.
