New Ford Focus Stability Control Technology Predicts Spinouts

New Ford Focus Stability Control Technology Predicts SpinoutsWESTLAND, Mich – Have you ever heard of a car that can predict when a spinout will occur? While many vehicles have technologies that assist when a spinout in occurring, Ford Motor Company is introducing a new feature that can detect a spinout before it even happens – The new Ford Focus Stability Control Technology actually predicts spinouts!

The new technology in the 2015 Ford Focus, called enhanced transitional stability technology, can detect a potential spin out by 100-200 milliseconds through real-time data gathered by sensors throughout the car. The technology can actually determine when conditions may lead to a spinout by reading information about the vehicle’s speed, steering wheel position, turn rate of the steering wheel and other input – all before the driver even notices! Then, when a risk is identified using the real-time sensor data, the system triggers spinout-mitigating braking inputs from the vehicle’s electronic stability control. Braking is applied separately to each wheel to help the driver keep control and continue on without a spinout.

During a winter that has left it’s bitter mark across the country, a car that anticipates when a risky situation may occur almost seems too good to be true. BUT, it’s possible and the new Ford Focus Stability Control Technology actually predicts spinouts! The best part is that this new stability control technology comes standard on all new Ford Focus models.

First Brand-New 2015 F-150 Rolls Off Assembly Line

First Brand-New 2015 F-150 Rolls Off Assembly Line

WESTLAND, Mich. – This was an extremely exciting week for everyone at Ford Motor Company because the First Brand-New 2015 F-150 Rolled Off the Assembly Line at the Ford Rouge Center! Believe it or not, this all-new vehicle is said to be the toughest, smartest, and most capable F-150 EVER!

So, how exactly is this pickup TRULY the best truck that Ford has ever produced? It’s all thanks to the vehicle’s specific materials and state-of-the-art technology. This tough guy is constructed of a high-strength steel frame, a high-strength military-grade, and an aluminum-alloy body. Its strong build and 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine helped it to pass over 10 million miles of torment testing. The all-new truck F-150 includes 11 new class-exclusive features and is 700 pounds lighter than past models! All of these unbeatable features result in the 2015 F-150 being the leader in towing and hauling capability and the most fuel-efficient F-150 ever!

Since this vehicle has been the best selling truck for the past 37 years, it’s no surprise that it became an instant hit after its reveal at the 2014 North American Auto Show back in January. Over 225,000 truck fanatics signed up for constant updates about this beauty, and over 250,000 people built and even priced their own version of this vehicle online!

As the First Brand-New 2015 F-150 Rolls Off the Assembly Line, we can’t help but wish we were behind the wheel of this beauty! Luckily, this dream will shortly become a reality since the all-new F-150 arrives to dealer showrooms next month!

Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection Helps Prevent Accidents

Ford's Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection Helps Prevent Accidents

WESTLAND, Mich. – It should come as no surprise when we say the Ford Motor Company is always on the move to come up with the next big thing. So what is the latest and greatest technology? Drum roll, please – Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, helping drivers to prevent accidents!

So, how exactly does this brand-new safety system work? It’s all thanks to the advanced radar and camera technology that scans the roadway ahead; always on the look out for other vehicles and pedestrians. If the system detects a possible interference, the driver is quickly alerted with audibly and visually. However, if the driver does not respond in time, the system takes over by reducing the speed of the vehicle and implementing a full brake force to eliminate the possibility of a accident.

While this system acts as another set of eyes for the person behind the wheel, it does not replace the driver or their need for attentiveness. There are even some restraints with this system, specifically during nighttime and other low-lit circumstances, vehicles moving in various directions, and particular weather conditions. Although this system is EXTREMELY beneficial for unanticipated situations, it is important to remember this feature is JUST an aid!

Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection Helps Prevent Accidents and is just another safety component to add to the long list of remarkable Ford technologies. This state-of-the-art system will first appear in Europe’s 2015 Ford Mondeo, and then will make it’s way to the U.S. within the new few months, so stay tuned!

Trick Or Treating Safety Tips

Trick Or Treating Safety Tips

WESTLAND, Mich. – Jeepers creepers! Halloween is ONLY a few days away! As our little ghouls and goblins run around in excitement for the big night, we can’t help but think about all the TRULY hair-raising dangers that lurk throughout this anticipated holiday. Luckily, your pals at North Brothers Ford are here to put your mind at ease! Gather your up your little monsters prior to this spooktacular night, and discuss these Trick or Treating Safety Tips from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to guarantee a howl-free night!

Trick or Treating Safety Tips

  • Shine bright! It’s KEY to make sure your child’s costume can be seen in the dark. Too late for a bright costume? Don’t stress! Just grab some reflective tape to stick on their festive ensemble.
  • Design a trick or treating route for all to follow. When creating this plan, remember to have the route take place in a well lit, and familiar neighborhood. In the case of being separated, a familiar spot will help put your mind at ease!
  • NO ONE should be alone on Halloween night. Young children must be with a trusted adult at all times, and older kids should always travel in a group.
  • Although it may seem unnecessary, always escort young children to the front door of each house. With young-ins running around in the dark, it only takes a second to get separated and for something serious to happen.
  • Same goes for cars – occupied or not, children of any age should never approach a vehicle!
  • Reviewing basic pedestrian safety with your children is a must. Once that sugar high hits, their energy may get them a bit too excited resulting in them running across the road without looking.
  • Discuss how crucial it is for children to stay alert throughout the entire night. If they spot anything suspicious, make sure they know that it is their responsibility to report that to a trusted adult, or even law official.
  • In the event that someone tries to convince a little one to go with them somewhere, tell them just how important it is to yell “NO!” and resist as much as they possibly can by kicking and screaming, and everything in between.
  • As a general safety rule, all children should know their phone number, address, and how to call 911. We cannot predict when an emergency will occur, so in the case that we are not with the youngsters, it is ESSENTIAL that they are knowledgeable of this information.

The most frightful night of the year should be a time for everyone to enjoy! Making sure you discuss our Trick Or Treating Safety Tips with your little pumpkins will allow you to sit back, and embrace this boo-tiful holiday as well. Don’t forget to share your fangtastic Halloween memories with us on Instagram for your chance to win some awesome prizes from our Fall Frenzy Instagram Giveaway!
