    As I marvel at all the good things my Model S does, I can always hope for more. I saw this article about active damping on Ford's new Fusion V6. It would be nice to have in some form on all vehicles.

    The article also linked to other goodness, like magnetic dampers:

    And here is the link to the YouTube video showing the Bose active suspension in action:

    Sorry for all the links, but I fell down the rabbit hole of active suspension...

    Mercedes S Class to Cadillac XTS.

    To Ford Fusion.

    The tech isn't amazing. Ford putting it in a mainstream sedan is amazing.

    Even if offered on the premium end of things.

    I want that Bose car. Good to see progress in this area by Ford. THIS is something that I would buy if Tesla offered it. I don't want to buy a Ford.

    My 2013 Fusion Energi has adaptive cruise... now it's a standard feature with the 2017 titanium trim. /sigh

    At least I had it for 2 years before the model S. :wink:
