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 Fund Is Giving Scholarships to Detroit Youth Choir

Ford Fund is giving scholarships - L&L Motors - Roosevelt, UT

The Detroit Youth Choir recently gained popularity on the hit NBC show, “America’s Got Talent.” This talented group of young singers placed second on the reality competition, falling short of the $1 million grand prize. However, Ford wants to show support for the 52-member choir, which is why Ford Fund is giving scholarships to the members.

Each member of the choir is receiving a $1,000 scholarship from Ford Fund. That amount of money can help pay for textbooks or other necessary items for the choir members. Ford also gave the group a 15-passenger Transit van, which will make traveling to events easier.

“We share the pride and excitement of Detroiters everywhere in recognizing these remarkable and talented young people,” said Jim Vella, president, Ford Motor Company Fund. “We’re thrilled to be able to help them not only with their transportation challenges, but also the next chapter of their lives.”

The Detroit Youth Choir has been a part of the Detroit community since 1996. The choir teaches about music, theater arts, dance and even life skills. It also has an impressive 98 percent graduation rate. Ford has helped this choir as well as other members of Michigan communities with about $177 million given to important causes.

We at L&L Motor proudly offer Ford vehicles, and we encourage you to take them out for test drives at our dealership.

See How Ford’s SHE-MOVES Mobility Program Is Making a Difference

SHE-MOVES

This year, Ford and the Ford Fund created a new mobility program called Strengthen Her: Mobilizing Ventures for Social Innovation, or SHE-MOVES. The SHE-MOVES mobility program was designed specifically to make a difference in the lives of women and children in South Africa and Nigeria. SHE-MOVES is built around the “Whole-Person Leadership” development, adhering to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which include Quality Education, Affordable and Clean Energy, Clean Water and Sanitation, Gender Equality, and Good Health and Wellbeing.

Specifically, SHE-MOVES made a difference in Nigeria by awarding a grant to Shuttlers, a female-owned app-based service that helps more than 400 women move around in Lagos, which is seeing tremendous population growth.

In South Africa, SHE-MOVES partnered with the Uhambo Foundation of Cape Town to give children with special needs the mobility they require; the grant to the foundation also empowers caretakers of these children. In addition to the financial assistance, the SHE-MOVES mobility program donated a Ford Tourneo Custom to the organization.

“We are extremely grateful to receive the SHE-MOVES grant and the donation of the Ford Tourneo Custom, both of which will assist us immensely in reaching out to more members of the community and help improve the lives of children affected by disabilities, particularly in the impoverished rural areas,” remarked Uhambo Foundation General Manager Sarah Driver-Jowitt.
