In the early days of the automotive industry, stability meant keeping the vehicle upright and the passengers comfortable. Engineers spent decades working out ride and handling compromises to develop suspensions that effectively control thousands of pounds of automotive steel, rubber, and glass when in motion.

As vehicle suspensions and roads have become much more refined, the term "automotive stability" has evolved to mean something very different. Today, stability refers to keeping drivers in control and ensuring that the vehicle remains on the road through all types of maneuvers, planned or otherwise. Engineers developed Electronic Stability Control (ESC), a technology designed to help keep the vehicle stable and on the road, regardless of conditions or steering inputs from the driver.

Computers keep your vehicle on the correct path

Technically, ESC is a computerized system that regulates hydraulic and mechanical components on the vehicle to assist driver control. The system works full time, requires no driver interaction, and is completely transparent to the driver"until it is needed.

Sudden steering wheel inputs on ice or snow, on dirt or gravel roads, or even during emergency avoidance maneuvers, can immediately put your vehicle in an unstable state"a condition where it is nearly uncontrollable. In these circumstances, without an ESC system or expert driver training, your vehicle would be nearly impossible to keep on the road.
