One of the things that ford is really pushing for its vehicles is technology that allows the driver and passengers to interact with the things we like on the internet and in other media, without getting distracted. Ford has its slick Sync system for drivers and is working on new tech all the time.

Ford and students at the university are working on projects that include a green-routing system to take drivers on a fuel-efficient path (which has already been unveiled) and a ride sharing program to put drivers with potential ride share passengers. Many other programs are in the works as well.
