when will we see stability control in local cars?

Have been doing a some thinking I was 'pondering' what will be the next safety features to be offered in local cars. I believe we will see an advancement of traction control that will form some kind of stabilty control.

Now that the falcon has an electrnonic throttle and brake force distribution surely something like this will be offered soon (Perhaps BA series 2?)as a way to increase saftey. It would most probaby only be standard on the LWB cars and Fairmont ghia (perhaps optional on Futura) but would be a good marketing coup. Persoanlly i am not a huge fan on them but there are people that would appreciate it.

What do you guys think? How do you think will be the first manufacturer to offer stabilty control

well. i guess that answered my question. Is VDC similar (not only in name) to that in the Focus?
