Can I add adaptive cruise control to my car?

I recently took a friend’s car for a test drive and used the adaptive cruise control function. I loved how it helped me to maintain my speed and keep a safe distance from other cars, but my older car doesn’t have the function. Is there a way for me to add adaptive cruise control to my car?

I’m sorry to hear that your vehicle doesn’t have this great function installed! Fortunately, it is possible to add adaptive cruise control (ACC) to vehicles that are not already equipped with it.
There are 2 main factors to keep in mind when adding ACC to your car:
Your car type The cost of installation
The ability to install ACC in your car will depend on whether or not your car was designed to support it or if you would need to install all of the additional required components.
It is significantly less expensive to install ACC into a car if the model is already equipped with the components needed for installation than if it isn’t.
The cost of ACC, not including any additional components or the cost of labor to install, ranges from $2000 to $2500.
ACC is an important vehicle feature, and its cost shouldn’t stand in the way of your safety. Save money on
