Ford has launched a new “Calm Screen” in the 2020 Ford Explorer that will help motorists to get away from a world where everyone is frenetically hooked on the latest notifications on their smartphones and other devices. The “Calm Screen” mode is available on the model’s instrument panel display.
When the motorists wants to take a breather, all he needs to do is to select the “Calm Screen” setting and most of the data that is displayed in the main part of the screen will vanish. The only information that will continue to remain on the screen will be those related to the speedometer, the fuel gauge, odometer, temperature and compass direction. The color of the screen will also turn into a soft blue, which is a color scheme that Ford opted for as blue is considered to be “soothing and tranquil” color
This option is similar to the Saab “Night panel” which used to shut off all the interior lights except the one for the speedometer.
Mercedes-Benz has launched a similar mode called Energizing Comfort that comprises settings for ambient light, seat massagers, curated playlists and even scent diffusers with soothing scents to create a relaxed mood.
The 2020 Ford Explorer was launched at the 2019 edition of the Detroit Auto Show and will be available at the retail level from this summer. In addition to the standard model, there will be hybrid variant that can cover 500 miles on one tank of fuel and a sporty variant, the Explorer ST with 400 hp and performance upgrades.
