Going Rogue – feeling today’s advanced augmented driving reality

The 2019 Nissan Rogue does much of the steering for you. Guided by Nissan’s Pro-Pilot Assist, the Rogue gently nudges you away from the sides of the lane, back into the center.

There’s also a rear sonar system that gives you an alert to anything behind you when backing, augmenting the backup camera’s display.

We drove the Nissan Rogue along the Sacramento River Delta, where we discovered how much fun this little crossover can be.

Next, we checked out the 2019 Ford F-150 Supercrew Limited Edition truck!

We took it traveling around horse property in the foothills of Northern California, we experienced the comfort and luxury of t. The interior cabin is so spacious and comfortable, one could easily forget that you are riding in a pickup truck. We loved the heated/cooling massaging seats in the front and the heated seats for rear passengers. The bed has a sturdy painted-on liner and fold out tailgate step for easy access into the back of the truck. This fully loaded F-150 topped out at just under $75,000.

And finally, we recently made our way to Detroit for an early introduction to Ford’s new 2020 Explorer. The automaker pulled out all the stops for the grand unveiling, taking over Ford Field, home of football’s Detroit Lions, for a NFL-sized “sneak peek” of the three-row SUV.

With sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks driving the bulk of new vehicle sales these days, Ford is making sure that the redesign of its historically best-selling SUV, the Ford Explorer, doesn’t get lost in the crowd. Returning to its roots, the 2020 Ford Explorer sports a rear-wheel-drive platform and an all-wheel-drive option while featuring lighter, leaner and stronger construction, more powerful and efficient EcoBoost engines and new technology to help keep family members safe, comfortable and happy. The rear-wheel-drive architecture enables a sportier design, improved on- and off-road capability and 600 pounds more in maximum towing capacity when properly equipped and the available 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine makes this the most powerful Explorer ever. While details about aftermarket accessory options will be released at a later date, the new Explorer will offer its broadest model lineup ever with standard, XLT, Limited, Limited Hybrid, ST and Platinum models available. Improved off-road capability comes courtesy of intelligent four-wheel drive and an available new “Terrain Management System” that features seven easy-to-engage drive modes accessible by a dial in the center console and each come with special 3D animated graphics in the available new 12.3-inch digital cluster. Powertrain offerings include a 3.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 projected to produce 365 horsepower and 380 foot pounds of torque making this the most powerful Explorer ever.
