The new SUV represents a new high in automobile technology. The changes have been gradual, but the result is a highly refined, luxury experience that makes driving from the suburbs to the mountains more fun than ever before. The redesign has taken off big time. Many of us may not have even heard of SUVs before the new Ford Modern Truck came on the scene. But the new Ford Escape and Taurus models represent perhaps the biggest advances in new vehicle design in a long time.
Every automobile manufacturer dreams of creating a sporty, well-built sports car that appeals to a specific audience – one that drives into the mountains and back home every weekend. SUVs have always had that profile, but the new Ford model takes it to a whole new level. It is very Stylish and it is modern. It just has a touch of class that sets it apart from the rest.
A lot of people buy SUVs because they are big and roomy and relatively comfortable inside. They fit two adults comfortably and they’re roomy enough for a good family outing. But it’s easy to see why those people buy a big SUV. There is no reason for them to do so any longer. With all the technological advances in today’s vehicles, the new Ford models do offer more passenger space than most sedans.
It isn’t true that SUVs are big, clunky and cumbersome. They are, by design, quite attractive and roomy. And in recent years, some manufacturers have added more features and better technology to their new vehicles. This allows the SUV to be more equipped to meet modern safety standards.
When you consider how important gas mileage has become, that’s another reason why people buy an SUV. These vehicles get higher miles per gallon than many competing vehicles. The combination of air conditioning, high-performance engines and reliable transmissions means that an SUV can get up to 80mpg. That is very good indeed, particularly when you consider the fact that the average gas prices currently hover over four dollars a gallon.
But modern car advancements don’t stop there. New SUVs has greater strength, greater passenger space and greater handling capabilities. These cars can go up to seven miles an hour and sometimes even faster. They have superior suspensions, greater steering systems and better transmissions to give you smooth rides and more control over the road.
Of course, modern conventions don’t end there. You’ll find all kinds of new materials and designs. Some manufacturers are making their cars out of aluminium and using high-strength steel for components. Others are using lightweight but strong plastics for their body frames and grilles. Still, others are using composites and high-tech paint to coat the exterior of their cars. All these are designed to reduce weight, increase aerodynamics and improve fuel mileage.
And then there are the interiors of these modern cars. You won’t find carpet anymore in an SUV. The floor is covered with a thick and insulated mat to trap heat during the colder winter months. You’ll also find advanced cooling systems that use your body temperature as a source of heat to cool down the interior. Other advanced technologies help the SUV to perform just as well in cold weather as it does in hot weather.
Another one of the modern conventions seen in SUVs is the dashboard. Instead of the old panel design, the dash has been redesigned to be sleeker and more user-friendly. New infrared headlamps replace traditional headlamps, providing brighter illumination for the road ahead. A completely redesigned interior provides a much more comfortable experience than the plain, boring panel design of the past.
One of the other modern conventions found in SUV’s today is the carwash. Not like in the old days when car washes used dirty cars, modern carwash now cleans your car in professional facilities with environmentally friendly products. Many carwash owners go to all these “green” events to maintain their cars and clean them as best as possible. Most SUV’s are also “certified” so they can take advantage of special programs aimed at helping them in their fight against air pollution. The air quality in cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco is getting much worse, which means that carwash owners there have had to increase their fleets and their green practices to combat this problem.
Of course, the most recent modern conventions seen in SUVs is the interior. Gone are the days when SUVs only had hardtops and soft tops. Nowadays, SUV’s have real wood flooring, nice leather seats, standard DVD players, and lots of storage room. Everything from your drinks to your toys can be stored in the new interior. It has been remodelled and modernized to the point where it offers the best handling and comfort possible while inside the vehicle.
