Yep. Terrain management allows for both safety and fun. It's hard to get the two together but Ford did an awesome job with the TMS.

When you're talking about TMS, you're specifically talking about selectable system in the 4WD models where you can change from normal to snow and such right? I'm very interested to see how my 2WD EcoBoost handles in the snow.
