Ford SYNC® 4 Infotainment System Has INRIX Technology

2021 Ford Mustang MachE | Roosevelt, UT

The all-new Ford SYNC® 4 infotainment system has INRIX technology, which makes your daily drive easier with tons of valuable driving data. INRIX makes it a breeze to access real-time information on available parking spaces, the lowest local gas prices, the nearest EV charging stations, and the latest traffic updates.

INRIX

INRIX keeps its information up-to-date by gathering billions of data points from anonymous sources every single day. This data comes from sources as varied as connected vehicles, state DOTs, social media, news reports, and road weather reports. For instance, its vast dataset lets it display the latest prices from over 380,000 gas stations around the world.

“Customers want connected vehicle technologies to work more like smartphones with real-time, personalized services – and that is exactly what SYNC® 4 offers, including INRIX’s parking and fuel price innovations,” explained Gary Jablonski, the manager of Ford Connected Vehicle Infotainment Systems. INRIX technology can even benefit entrepreneurs and contractors. Using the example of hard-working F-150 customers, Jablonski demonstrated that INRIX technology would take the stress and guesswork out of locating job sites.

Bronco, Mustang, and F-150

The SYNC® 4 infotainment system will be available on Bronco models, the all-electric Mustang Mach-E, and the all-new 2021 Ford F-150. When those models arrive, you’ll be able to find all of those innovative vehicles right here at L&L Motor, serving Roosevelt, Utah.

Ford Sustainability Report Promises Carbon Neutrality by 2050

2020 Ford Models | Roosevelt, UT

In its 21st annual Sustainability Report, Ford announced plans to become entirely carbon neutral by 2050. To do so, Ford will focus its efforts on its facilities, supply base, and vehicle use, which currently create about 95 percent of its emissions today.

The Changes Ford Plans To Make

Ford is developing goals aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative, which divides emissions into three groups. Scope 1 emissions stem from sources that Ford controls or owns. Scope 2 emissions include indirect emissions that cooling, heating and electricity consumption generates. Lastly, Scope 3 emissions are made by the Ford supply base and vehicles.

In Accordance to the Paris Climate Agreement

The automaker intends to act in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement. As such, Ford is adhering to California’s emissions standards rather than the federal standards. Through 2022, Ford is investing an astounding $11.5 billion in its all-new electric vehicles, which is why the Mustang Mach-E and the all-electric Transit are hitting the market.

Single-Use Plastics

In addition to reaching full carbon neutrality by 2050, Ford has reiterated its goal originally declared in the 2019 Ford Sustainability Report to stop using single-use plastics by 2030. Ford manufacturing plants will also utilize renewable energy by 2035.

We at L&L Motor are proud to offer Ford vehicles in Vernal, Utah. Give us a call to learn about the upcoming models headed to our dealership.

Trucks Outsold Cars for First Time Ever in the US

Ford Super Duty | Trucks Outsold Cars In US | Roosevelt, UT

Over recent years, sales of passenger cars have been decreasing, while sales of trucks and SUVs have been on the rise. In April of 2020, the Autodata Corporation found that pickup trucks outsold passenger cars in the United States for the first time in history.

According to Bloomberg, pickups sold 17,000 more units than passenger cars during the month of April alone. This is a major change from just five years ago when passenger cars sold about 500,000 units more than pickup trucks in a single month.

Lower gas prices and great financing offers of late may have contributed to the uptick in pickup sales. With lower gas prices, in particular, trucks that value power over efficiency may be more sought after than they were previously.  

Nevertheless, some trucks, like the 2020 Ford F-150, nicely balance power and efficiency, making them fantastic options even when gas prices increase. The F-150 offers six engine options, including the 3.0-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel and the 3.5-liter high-output EcoBoost®, which reaches a best-in-class 450 horsepower.
