The latest technology to be previewed on the 2020 Ford Explorer is called ‘Mindful Mode’. The new feature strips all information from the available 12.3-inch digital cluster with the exception of current speed, and Ford says it allows drivers to have an opportunity to ‘digitally detox’. The new Ford Explorer has already been recognized as having the quietest Explorer cabin ever, according to Ford, and ‘Mindful Mode’ is expected to improve the driver experience even more.
As seen in the above photo, ‘Mindful Mode’ is just a simplified digital layout that should help to reduce eye strain and the overall exposure to information on a screen.
Ford has been emphasizing the interior of its new 2020 Ford Explorer, which introduces a dual-wall dashboard to help create the quietest Explorer cabin ever, according to Ford. This first-for-Ford innovation can be paired with acoustic glass and ‘Active Noise Control’, which is standard on the 2o2o Explorer Limited Hybrid.
With its quietest interior yet, Ford says the 2020 Explorer takes “serenity to new horizons,” with ‘Mindful Mode’. According to Ford, a recent report found that 69 percent of adults on a global scale believe that they should have a mandatory timeout from their devices. Additionally, a Nielsen study found that Americans spend half of their day processing information on a screen. Ford engineers are making it possible to reduce screen time in the new Explorer.
In addition to the new 12.3-inch digital cluster, the 2020 Ford Explorer focuses on relaxation with multi-contour seats, a 14-speaker B&O sound system, and new Ford Co-Pilot360 driver-assist innovations. Reverse brake assist and ‘Active Park Assist 2.0’ are both available on the 2020 Explorer.
