If it has been a while since you have seen a new Ford in the Olympia Washington area, you are going to be surprised with all of the hi-tech features. The 2014 Fusion is capable of things we could have only imagined just a few years ago. Here is some of the new technology that impresses us the most!
The New Fusion Can (Almost) Park Itself
If you are one of the many people that struggle with parallel parking, you are in luck. The new Fusion can help you park with its available Active Park Assist. Ford equipped the Fusion with ultrasonic sensors that take all the hard work out of finding a space big enough for your car, and helping steering you into the spot. The sensors determine how far you are away from the curb, the car in front of you, and the car behind you. Once you are ready to park, the Fusion does the steering for you; all you have to do is control the pedals and shift.
A New Take on Cruise Control
It’s happened to everyone, you get on the freeway and set your cruise control and right after it’s set the car in front of you pushes his or her brakes. In return, you have to break and cancel out of cruise control. This process repeats itself over and over and can become frustrating. With the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Forward Collision Warning, Ford has created a solution for this issue. When your speed is set, the Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically break with the traffic in front of you and speed back up as the traffic does. No more hassling with turning your cruise control on and off repeatedly.
Voice Activated Technology
Taking your hands off the steering wheel can be dangerous, that is why Ford is making it easier for you to keep your hands where they should be with voice-activated technology. SYNC Voice-Activated technology makes it possible to communicate with your Fusion in ways like never before. You can make hands-free phone calls from your compatible cellphone, adjust your stereo volume or change stations, and even control the cars temperature using your voice with SYNC with MyFord Touch. There is a long list of commands and abilities available with this great system that you will have to experience in person to believe.
