Sometimes, the mirror deserves a second look. No, Jerry's Ford in Alexandria isn't encouraging vanity. What we mean is that the often overlooked vehicle part warrants a little attention and praise now and again. Especially when that mirror displays innovative technology from Ford.
Most recently, the automaker developed an elliptical acoustic mirror that reduces wind noise and makes for a much quieter interior. Bearing the appearance of a satellite dish with a microphone, the mirror operates by recognizing "hot spots" where noise seeps into the new Ford model the easiest. The system then deflects and blocks these spots allowing drivers and passengers to listen to their music or engage in conversation sans gravel grumbling or road vibrations.
Though the mirror technology is already available in some sectors of the European market, Ford is the first to bring it to the United States. Wondering which model will be the first to offer drivers noise-reducing technology? The 2013 Ford Escape of course. We say "of course" mostly because the popular SUV is no stranger to cutting-edge technology. The 2012 Ford Escape boasts features such as Voice-Activated SYNC, DVD entertainment, MyKey and Active Park Assist.
In addition to the new mirror technology, the upcoming Ford Escape will feature an optimized shape that will also work to lower the amount of external noise seeping through vehicle cracks. Auto enthusiasts intrigued by the new Ford elliptical acoustic mirror can feast their eyes on the unveiled 2013 Escape at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
