Translogic Heads To Georgia Tech For A Demo Of Ford's Remote Parking and Parking Spotter Programs
Translogic visits Georgia Tech for a glimpse at the future of parking. First, we demo Ford's remote parking program by driving a golf cart around campus from the comfort of an off-site lab; think of remote parking as a virtual valet. Then we see how Ford's "parking spotter" works, a crowd-sourced way of finding an open space.
The Chinese market version of the next-gen Ford Taurus will make its debut on April 18 just before the Shanghai Auto Show. It isn't yet known how much of that new styling might cross the Pacific to the US, though.
NHTSA is taking a second look at the May 2014 power steering recall that affected 740,000 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner crossovers after a complaint was filed by an owner who says Ford's fix wasn't sufficient the first time around.
A consumer advocacy group in North Carolina wants NHTSA to re-open its investigation into front lighting failures on the Ford Crown Victoria and Mercury Grand Marquis. The agency alleges that the problem is still occurring, and Ford dealers are not keeping the parts in stock.
Ford may have done away with minivans in North America in favor of crossovers, but in Europe the MPV is still the method of choice for transporting families. To that end, the Blue Oval automaker has launched the new Galaxy you see here.
The styling of the next-gen Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang isn't a secret at this point, but Ford still keeps them camouflaged on the street. This clip gives a real-world opportunity to hear what its V8 sounds like, though.
The UK-market Ford S-Max features an Intelligent Speed Limiter, a cruise control setting that automatically maintains the posted speed limit. It does so by using cameras in the windshield to read speed limit signs.
