Potholes can feel like the unavoidable bane of any driver’s existence — they’re easy to find and hard to miss. But a new pothole detection technology might change that. The new Ford Focus will spotlight this new technology that will minimize the damage that a pothole might cause.
The new Ford Focus will feature a new advanced suspension technology that will adjust to potholes when the system detects them. This technology comes with the Ford Focus’ Continuously Controlled Damping system. The pothole detection technology was tested on the ultimate pothole challenge — a test road at Ford’s Belgium test facility which is built with extreme potholes and other hazards on the road. If the pothole technology succeeded on this challenge, it’s sure to make a big difference when used on the average road.
The 2019 Ford Focus compact car should go on sale sometime in 2019. The brand will likely offer it as both a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback. In addition to its advanced pothole detection technology, it boasts an attractive new design, a more spacious interior, and additional driver-assist technologies.

If you’re living near Tropical Ford in Orlando, Florida, you may have been busy this summer taking weekend trips to the beach or spending days at Disney World or Universal Orlando. Extend the fun this season when you pack up your Ford for a family road trip. If you’re looking for a unique destination, you won’t be disappointed with a trip to the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale.
This museum offers Summer Sea Turtle Walks where visitors of all ages can get an amazing look at the life of sea turtles. Each year between spring and fall, sea turtles come out of the ocean to build nests on the beaches of Florida. Here they lay eggs at night time and return to the ocean while the eggs remain protected in the nests for an incubation period. Once the eggs have hatched, the baby sea turtles journey from their nests to the ocean.
The Summer Sea Turtle Walks at the Museum of Discovery begin in the evenings with a presentation on the life of sea turtles. From there, visitors are lead for a night walk on the beach by expert guides who will show the nesting grounds of sea turtles. Often times these walks feature breathtaking sea turtle sightings, but even when they don’t this unique Florida activity is worth the day trip.
