"Unless I am mistaken ,adaptive steering is a vibrating steering wheel when wandering out of your lane"

You are thinking of lane keeping assist.

Adaptive steering turns the front wheels more for each turn of the steering wheel so that you don't have to turn the wheel so much while parking but still have good control at high speed.

"As far as adaptive cruise goes, its okay"

I really like mine though I do use it more when not trailer pulling. Mine is a 2016 model but the newer ones that work in stop and go traffic are terrific when traffic gets backed up on the interstate. I really like the idea of having a continuous watch on the car in front of me with nearly instantaneous braking in braking situations. I do wish that Ford could make it a little smoother though.

Not only are these vehicles sitting for months on end with no chips, I had heard that they are having some issues with the new chips they are getting. A truck shop around here won't tune any new diesels with these new chips as they said they few they did had nothing but problems.

And how does every single vehicle manufacturer not only become so dependent one one supplier, it amazes me no one has stepped up to start producing these chips? Seems like some tech company out there would start making these. I smell a startup.


It sounds like few startups could afford to build a new semiconductor plant. However, Samsung is talking seriously about building a $17 billion dollar plant in Texas. If I had to guess it will be about 2 years before we see much production from it though.

Got it ,no experience when I drove the 2021 ford Superduty with adaptive cruise nor steering , it was the lane keeping assist I didn't care for.

I have the works on my 2020 Ram 3500 Longhorn. The adaptive steering keeps the force to turn about the same at highway speeds or driving 3 mph through a field. Once you use it on a Ram you’re spoiled. Any other truck you get into feels like you don’t have power steering.

The lane keep assist has made me a better driver from the stand point that I use my turn signal more religiously.

The adaptive cruise control has already kept me out of one or two accidents. It just hits the brakes while I’m still reacting to the situation ahead of me.

I find lane keeping to be annoying most of the time but use it for some extra help when I am tired or have a distraction like reaching a snack on a long trip. Mine is from 2016, I am hoping that the newer versions are more useful.

Sometimes mine will trigger an alarm when driving on a straight road just because I haven't had to turn the wheel in a while and it thinks that I have gone to sleep.

I had adaptive steering on my previous F350. For 2021 the adaptive steering was optional and I didn't think it was anything I'd miss so I ordered mine without. I really don't notice any difference from my 2017 to my 21... certainly not something I'd be willing to pay $1250 for.

My son dropped the adaptive steering awhile back on his order, he got a build date for the week of 9/20, and a VIN#. Just got an email this morning , truck is built , and will be delivered Oct 4-10 to the dealer. Happened pretty quick after the adaptive steering was dropped . His initial order was in April , so it was still nearly six months .

Sons new 2022 Superduty Lariat is sitting at the dealers lot ,ready to pick up. nice truck. A little jealousy ,but no desire right now to dump 80K on a new truck . Old Ram Laramie is good enough.
