Ex­cit­ing new mod­els from FORD

Bray People - - MOTORING EXTRA -

FORD Mo­tor Com­pany has some very ex­cit­ing new mod­els on the way:

The new Ford Fo­cus that goes on sale in the sec­ond half of 2014; new Ford Mus­tang that ar­rives in Europe in 2015; and new Ford Edge Con­cept that gives a strong in­di­ca­tion of the tech­nol­ogy, de­sign and crafts­man­ship di­rec­tion of the com­pany's new large SUV for Europe; are among the more than 25 new ve­hi­cles Ford is launch­ing over five years.

The new Ford Fo­cus with its bolder, more emo­tive ex­te­rior de­sign and finely crafted new in­te­rior is the first Ford to of­fer Per­pen­dic­u­lar Park­ing, a new hands-free park­ing tech­nol­ogy that helps driv­ers re­verse into spa­ces along­side other cars; Cross Traf­fic Alert, which warns driv­ers re­vers­ing out of a park­ing space of ve­hi­cles that may soon be cross­ing be­hind them; and Park-Out As­sist, which helps driv­ers as they exit a par­al­lel park­ing space.

The new Ford Mus­tang is con­firmed to go on sale in Europe for the first time af­ter al­most 50 years of pro­duc­tion, promis­ing world-class lev­els of per­for­mance while em­brac­ing the Mus­tang's her­itage and sta­tus as a nine mil­lion-sell­ing global icon.

Fea­tur­ing pow­er­ful new 2.3-litre EcoBoost and 5.0 litre V8 en­gine op­tions, the new Mus­tang also of­fers ad­vanced driver con­ve­nience and driver aid tech­nolo­gies. De­but­ing in Europe on the new Fo­cus, SYNC 2 of­fers mul­ti­ple con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions in­clud­ing two USB ports. Its split-screen nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem shows land­marks and ma­jor junc­tions on screen in 3D and fea­tures the MICHE­LIN guide and MICHE­LIN Green Guide.

Ford's SYNC 2 tech­nol­ogy en­ables voice­con­trol of nav­i­ga­tion, cli­mate, phone and en­ter­tain­ment us­ing nat­u­ral voice com­mands and a new high-res­o­lu­tion eight-inch colour touch screen in Europe for the first time.

Sim­ply push­ing the voice con­trol but­ton and say­ing ‘I'm hun­gry’ will bring up a list of lo­cal restaurants, while nav­i­ga­tion des­ti­na­tions can be en­tered by say­ing the full ad­dress at once.
