(Reuters) - Ford Motor Co said on Monday it plans to roll out a wireless technology for its new vehicle models in the United States, starting 2022 , that will allow direct communication The new technology will help cars to quickly send and receive information about their surrounding environment

A grid of cars that can talk to each other is something that' s been tossed around for awhile, with the The idea is to start blanketing the roads with cars equipped with V2V and vehicle-to-infrastructure But, that still hasn't happened yet. Ford recently announced its CoPilot 360 driver-assist suite will be

As we develop our self-driving vehicles, we are focused on three ideals that we believe are crucial to earning trust: safety, reliability and valuable experiences.

One of the most important visions for an idyllic, utopian vision for a future for transportation has been vehicle-to-everything communications. This V2X technology would allow for cars to talk to each other and to everything around them, helping to avoid collisions and congestion automatically. The problem is, in order for this to work all cars really need to be speaking the same language, and the development of those industry-wide standards has been dragging on for decades.

Cars can communicate with each other as they go. The technology is in its early stages but this past weekend, researchers drove to Holland to see if their GCDC manager Maurice Kwekkenaar explains that cooperative driving is where cars communicate with each other and roadside systems as well.

DETROIT (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co (F.N) will significantly increase its planned investments in electric vehicles to billion by 2022 and have 40 hybrid and fully electric vehicles in its model lineup, Chairman Bill Ford said on Sunday at the Detroit auto show. The investment figure is sharply higher

At this year's CES in Las Vegas, Ford has announced it's moving its own way. After demonstrating with Qualcomm in early 2018, Ford will begin deploying V2X communications in all its new cars starting in 2022.

Ford is calling this C-V2X, and that "C" is a very important differentiator. It stands for "cellular", pointing to this tech being built on the back of existing mobile networks that power our cellphones. This actually had been a huge sticking point for the industry-wide adoption of V2X, because much of the original work was developing a proprietary wireless standard called dedicated short-range communications, or DSRC.

Under development for decades, DSRC creates a short-range, point-to-point network that enables cars to talk to nearby objects. However, now that 4G is widespread, and with 5G coming soon, many in the industry believed it was time to ditch DSRC and go with cellular. That's exactly what Ford is doing here.

Ford Dealer Selling “New” 2005 GT For $449,900

Ford Dealer Selling “New” 2005 GT For $449,900 If money's burning a hole in your pocket. Ever wanted to buy a brand new Ford GT? It’s still not too late – the Blue Oval company is extending the production run of the new supercar by adding 350 more cars through 2022. But now you can also buy a virtually brand new GT from the previous generation of the model. A Ford dealer in Illinois is offering a 2005 GT with just 104 miles (167 kilometers) on the odometer. That’s probably the mileage of the car after it was taken off the assembly lines and driven through the showroom’s halls and parking lots.

DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford Motor replaced its chief executive officer a year ago, handing the job to Jim Hackett. But it may be another year before the company starts to show clear signs of a revival under the new boss.

Cars are turning into devices, and the implications are fascinating. By 2022 , 50 per cent of new vehicles will be shipped with V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) hardware, a technology that enables The study called, Consumer Connected Cars : Applications, Telematics & V2V 2017- 2022 , found that the total number

In announcing the service, Executive Director of Ford's Connected Vehicle Platform Don Butler said that this C-V2X system is meant to "complement" the onboard sensors that enable the company's autonomous cars to function. "While these vehicles will be fully capable of operating without C-V2X," Butler said, "the technology could help them create more comprehensive maps of the world that lies beyond the view of lidar, radar and cameras."

The big question, though, is whether the rest will follow. The full potential of V2X will only be realized when the entire industry is onboard, but with Audi also indicating it will support the C-V2X implementation provided by Qualcomm, we might be seeing the beginning of some proper -- and long-needed -- momentum.

Ford Taurus Production Ends in the U.S..
Ford is cutting sedans from its U.S. lineup, so this announcement comes as little surprise. The automaker has officially ended production of the Taurus in the U.S. The final Ford Taurus rolled off the line at the Chicago Assembly Plant last week. More than 8 million copies were built here over the course of 34 years. The Taurus debuted at the 1985 Los Angeles Auto Show as a replacement for the midsize LTD sedan. When it arrived, it featured a 3.0-liter V-6 engine with just 140 hp, and a four-cylinder option followed shortly after. In 1989, Ford introduced an SHO version with a 220-hp V-6 engine. From 1992 to 1996, it was the best-selling car in the U.S.
