A New Vehicle

A few years ago, my parents built a farmhouse in the country. Their new home was located on a dirt road. Regardless of the season, this road was usually hard to drive on. During periods of heavy rain at my parents’ home, the roads became extremely muddy. During times of draught at this location, the road got large potholes in it. Because of the treacherous driving conditions at their new place, my parents decided to purchase a new vehicle. They traded their midsize sedan for a large truck. On this blog, you will discover the best types of vehicles to drive on dirt roads. Enjoy!

4 High-Tech Features Found in New Vehicles

One of the advantages of purchasing a new car is you can enjoy some high-tech features. You can find high-tech features not just in the most expensive luxury models, but in many of the more standard models of new vehicles as well. If you are in the market for a new car, here are five high-tech features to keep an eye out for.

#1: Blind-Spot Warning

One of the best high-tech features you should look for in a vehicle is a blind-spot warning system. With a blind-spot warning system, multiple sensors are placed along the rear flanks of your vehicle. These sensors will detect when a person or object is within their range.

A great blind-spot warning system will use multiple measures to alert you to someone in your blind spot. A warning light will illuminate in your dashboard. If you don't adhere to the warning, an audible warning will be issued. Some vehicles even have a brake intervention system, which will apply the brakes to stop you from moving into another vehicle.

In addition to a blind-spot warning system, some cars come equipped with a rear camera, which allows you to see behind your vehicle and prevent blind-spot related accidents more easily.

#2: Passive Keyless Entry

Passive keyless entry takes keyless entry to the next level. Instead of having to press a button on your keys, your vehicle will detect the key fob if you have it in your hand, pocket, or purse, and will unlock your vehicle when you pull or touch on a door handle.

To lock your vehicle, there may be a spot that you touch on your exterior door handle that will automatically lock your vehicle back up. With passive keyless entry, to start your car, you can press a button to start the engine if your keys are inside the car.

#3: Mobile app Connection

Almost every car manufacturer has its mobile app connection system. These connected mobile apps are designed to provide you with more information about your vehicle. The exact features vary by car manufacture, but you can do things such as remotely start your car or lock it up via the app.

You can program your navigation system using your phone. You can get information about your vehicle's state, such as how much fuel is in it and how charged the battery is. You can also get scheduled service updates about your car. Some of these connected mobile apps may have a subscription fee.

#4: Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking

Many cars are now combining these two systems. With a forward-collision warning system, you will have sensors on your vehicle that measure vehicles' speed and distance in front of you and let you know if someone slows or stops suddenly by issuing a warning to prevent an accident. The warning is usually both auditory and visual. If the driver doesn't heed the warning, the car may apply the brakes to avoid or reduce the force of an accident.

These technological advances will help keep you safer in your new vehicle. Contact local dealerships to learn more.
