The vehicles for purchase today are loaded with technology that could actually keep some drivers more connected than they might want, so the Ford Mindful Mode has been announced by the automotive brand to counteract this. The car information display mode works by eliminating visual clutter, connectivity and the like to let them spend their time driving as more of a disconnected period for themselves. This will likely come as welcome news to commuters who are seeking to regain some time alone as they drive to work instead of taking calls and staying informed of incoming notifications.
Ford Explorer Brand Marketing Manager Lee Newcombe spoke on the new Ford Mindful Mode saying, "We live in a world of ubiquitous screens, and the information can be overwhelming. New ‘Mindful Mode’ in the all-new Explorer offers a break from the constant stream of information and alerts bombarding us by giving drivers the option to disengage and take a moment for themselves away from the chaos technology can wreak."
