With Mother’s Day this weekend, here are the top 10 mom-friendly features offered in Ford and Lincoln cars, trucks, crossovers and SUVs.


* DVD Entertainment System : Are we there yet? The ultimate question asked by many kids during a long trip. Well, Ford’s available DVD Entertainment System can make those long hauls a little more enjoyable for the whole family. Back passengers can enjoy their favourite movie making those long journeys seem to go by a little faster.

* Reverse Sensing System : Ford’s available Reverse Sensing System alerts drivers to objects in the vehicle’s path when slowly backing up, allowing moms to make it out of a bike-filled driveway or navigate even the toughest parking lots with ease. This clever feature uses innovative ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper to audibly alert when objects are behind the vehicle. (The feature is available on the Ford Taurus, Taurus X, Edge, Escape, Explorer, Sport Trac, Expedition, F-150, F-Series Super Duty and E-Series; and Lincoln MKX and Navigator.)

* MP3 Audio Input Jack : Moms and kids alike can create the perfect soundtrack for their travel adventures with Ford’s auxiliary input jack and MP3-capable CD players. Standard on most Ford and Lincoln vehicles, the audio input jacks allow customers to bring any MP3 player with a standard 3.5-millimetre audio output into their vehicle and play it through the audio system.

* CenterSlide™ Second Row : Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator make it easy for moms to easily reach children or items in the second row with a class-exclusive CenterSlide™ feature that enables the middle section of the second row to move forward up to 11 inches (27.9 cm).
* Power Liftgate : Ford’s available power liftgate raises and lowers with the push of a button on the remote keyless-entry key fob. For moms who are always juggling sports equipment, groceries or other family gear, it doesn’t get any easier than this. (The feature is available on Ford Expedition and Taurus X; Lincoln MKX and Navigator.)

* PowerFold™ Seats : Extra cargo with the kids in tow? No problem. Ford’s available class-exclusive PowerFold™ third-row seats make room for extra gear at the touch of a button on Ford Explorer and Expedition and Lincoln Navigator models. The new Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX also feature an EasyFold™ rear seat back release that creates a flat cargo floor with the touch of a button.

* Memory Seats : For moms who share their vehicle with driving teenage children – or any other family member – Ford’s memory seat feature allows drivers to save their preferred seat position to memory so they don’t have to reset every time they re-enter the vehicle. (The feature is available on the Ford Taurus, Taurus X, Edge, Explorer, Expedition and F-150; Lincoln MKZ, Lincoln MKX, Lincoln Mark LT and Navigator.)

* Compartmentalized Centre Console : The standard centre console on the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers features convenient moveable dividers that can be configured several ways to hold a variety of gadgets – from cell phones to hand bags to napkins/tissues to DVDs and even a variety of laptops. The new Ford Escape and Escape Hybrid also feature a new compartmentalized centre console.

* DVD-Based Navigation System : Ford’s DVD-based Navigation System is a must have for moms on the go. The system features a 6.5-inch-wide screen (16.5 cm), recites turn-by-turn travel directions in English, French or Spanish and helps locate points of interest such as gas stations, ATMs and restaurants. On most vehicles, the navigation system comes with a premium sound system that features a six-disc in-dash CD/MP3 player and AM/FM radio.

* Conversation Mirrors : The overhead centre console on the new Ford Taurus X, Expedition MAX and Lincoln Navigator features a flip-down conversation mirror that allows first-row occupants to see passengers in the second and third rows – proof that mom really can have eyes in the back of her head.
