Adventure awaits, and the all-new Ford Bronco and F-150 are more equipped than ever to take you off the beaten path. To ensure that you are free to explore with confidence, Ford is working with Telenav® to provide improved navigation technologies that will keep functioning, even outside of the cellular range.
Hybrid Navigation Software
Ford and Telenav® have come together to add available hybrid navigation software to Ford models that can store maps and provide directions, no matter where the journey takes you. This new connective technology is part of the SYNC® 4 system, which is available in the new Ford Bronco and F-150. With this navigation tool in place, you can confidently explore the outdoors find your way back to Vernal, Utah, with ease.
Enhancing The Towing Experience
The new navigation solution not only enhances the off-roading experience but also the towing experience. It’s built with specialized routing options if you are towing a trailer or if you are off-roading. This allows you to travel along routes that are suited for your trailer’s size, so you can avoid running into narrow passes or sharp turns. You can also get directions for lots of the 4×4 trails in North America, and more trail maps will be added in the future.

The first part to come out of the
collaboration is a winch-capable front bumper, which is designed specifically
for the Ford Ranger. The bumper is made from welded sheet steel and attaches to

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
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.
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
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
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.

The Ford Motor Company has built its legacy upon innovation.
That tradition shows no sign of stopping — at the Intelligent Transportation Society of America’s yearly
conference in Washington, D.C., the automaker unveiled the Ford Connected
showed off two innovations aimed at making the road a safer place for drivers
and pedestrians alike. These devices allow vehicles to communicate with other
vehicles and mobile devices through Bluetooth®, blockchain
encryption, and short-range communication technology.
first demonstration showed a roadside unit that allows vehicles to wirelessly
communicate with cyclists, pedestrians, and other road users. It allows
pedestrians to be notified of oncoming vehicles they might not notice.
second high-tech safety device aims to smooth out the issues inherent at
four-way stops. It gives drivers an easier way to determine right-of-way,
without the frustration of waving a hesitant driver on, while insisting,
“Please, you go first.” Instead, the vehicles will have a conversation,
ensuring smoother transitions and fewer miscommunications.
Connected Vehicle Platform and Product Executive Director Don Butler is excited
about the potential for these innovations. Aside from helping traffic run
smoothly, Butler is excited to gather more data about traffic, construction,
and emergency vehicles, so cities can strategically improve their infrastructure.
