Come watch some new 2008 Ford Features and Technology. Some of the new features for 2008 include:
Capless Fuel Filler “ Never lose your gas cap again. The 2008 Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer feature a capless fuel filler “ an innovative technology that was first available on the Ford GT. It not only eliminates the inconvenience of forgetting to put the gas cap back on after fueling, but also saves time during refueling by doing away with unscrewing and replacing a fuel filler cap. The system could prove to benefit the environment as well. The capless fuel system provides a much better seal than a cap, as it isn’t opened until the fuel pump nozzle is inserted. When capless fueling is completed, the nozzle is removed and the system seals shut automatically.
and a noise reducing mirror – To combat wind noise, side mirrors were made smaller and given a more aerodynamic shape for less turbulence.
