    Nissan ProPILOT

    Nissan is using the results from the latest Analytics Research in Traffic Safety study in its ProPILOT driver assistive technology. Nissan has 3 levels of ProPILOT. The ProPILOT Assist reacts to slowing traffic by helping to bring you to a complete stop. When traffic starts up again, it can get you back up to speed. ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link uses data from the vehicle's Door-to-Door Navigation System and adjusts the vehicle's speed ahead of curves and freeway exits, based on data about the route entered into the vehicle's navigation system. ProPILOT Assist 2.0 is the only Nissan version of assistive technology that allows for hands free driving on certain roads and conditions.

    Ford Mustang and Shelby Consumer Marketing Manager Jim Owens says Ford’s most powerful Mustang, the 2024 Mustang GT, has gaming level technology in the center stack. Owens talks about the interior. Owens: "In this car we have the interior that is so different from previous Mustangs and we're so excited because we think it's going to bring in the next generation of Mustang owners. I literally sat in the studio the first time that I was sitting in the car and played with this thing for 50 minutes before I decided to turn on the car. It's powered by the unreal gaming technology that is like in Rocket League and Forza. It is instantly creating on the center stack the vehicle and showing your drifting, showing your vehicle in performance mode and active exhaust and suspension mode. It is just a great way to personalize Mustang in the 21st century technology and that's what we’re excited about.”  VIN 001 of the 2024 Ford Mustang GT was  auctioned off  in January for over half a million dollars with the proceeds benefiting Juvenile Diabetes Research.
