Just finished our first road trip in the 2014. Chicago to St Louis and back. Biggest surprise is I love the adaptive cruise control. I thought it would be an annoyance, keeping me from getting too close to the car in front. Instead, it was more like an intro to autonomous driving - the car literally drove itself in terms of speed. Too close, slows you down and maintains, car moves over to right lane, brings you back up to preprogrammed speed. No more hit brakes, slow down, hit resume when clear - a must have for highway driving now that I've experienced it. Probably old news on this forum but new to me. 

 

I need to work on seat positioning as I did get a little lower back fatigue at the 4 hour mark or so. Got 21.6 mpg, mostly 75 - 80 cruising down 55.

X2!    One of my favorite features of my 2014 MKZ is the adaptive cruise control.  I use it all the time!   Am anxious to upgrade to a 2017 or newer model where the adaptive cruise stays engaged all the way to a stop and then moves the car forward as the car in front of you moves away from a stop.  Another step along the way to autonomous driving!

I love the stop and go ACC in my 2017. The first few times it is kind of scary in that you approach the car stopping ahead of you and you aren't sure its going to stop, but it always does.
