The 2016 Explorer Platinum will enjoy some technological upgrades from Sony

Ford and Sony will be bringing some industry-first technology to the new 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum. With the idea of the perfect soundtrack in mind, an exclusive Sony sound system will be featured in the Explorer.

The audio system includes two industry-firsts: Live Acoustics and Clear Phase. It will also be the first time an exclusive Sony home audio technology system is actually used in a vehicle. The two Sony technologies offer an audio experience unlike any other. They create a concert-like quality within the Explorer that you won’t find in any other vehicle.

Matt Zuehlk, Ford Explorer brand manager said, “Explorer is about pushing boundaries and authentic high-end home theater sound isn’t just for the living room anymore.” He continued to announce the sound quality of the new Explorer will “knock your socks off.”

This cutting-edge 2016 Explorer Platinum technology will be making its way here this summer, so stay tuned to the Hassett Automotive blog and we’ll let you know when the new model has arrived! Until then, check out our inventory of the 2015 Ford Explorer.

Subaru Eyesight TechnologyWith the advent of a lot of technology, it can sometimes seem like the very technology that is supposed to be helping you—making your life easier, better, and safer—is actually fighting you. Not EyeSight, however. That’s what Subaru calls its autonomous technology.

Subaru EyeSight technology works for you—and with you—to create a truly safer driving experience. There’s data to prove it too. Subaru reports that all of the 2015 models equipped with EyeSight technology (including Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and XV Crosstrek), “received the highest possible score in front crash prevention by the IIHS.”

EyeSight encompasses a number of different features, all designed to preempt a collision. There’s Adaptive Cruise Control, which works just like traditional cruise except your Subaru will use monitoring and braking to maintain a driver-inputted distance between you and the car in front of you.

EyeSight uses cameras to monitor any possible dangerous conditions as they arise. For instance, if you happen to stray out of your lane, your Subaru will warn you through the Lane Departure System. If a frontal impact appears imminent, EyeSight will issue warnings and implement emergency braking if needed.

EyeSight is named that because that’s just what it does. It’s a helpful extra set of eyes to ensure that you and your family get to your destination safely. We at Hassett Automotive would be happy to provide that safety for you, so take a test drive today.
