Gitex will be held from October 18 to 22 at the Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre.
"Ford Motor Company has so much happening at the moment in terms of new world-class quality products, unique technologies and smart as well as safety innovations that clearly indicate the future of Ford is truly upbeat and dynamic," said Waldo Galan, Ford Middle East's managing director.
"Our participation in Gitex for the second consecutive year comes at the right time as we debut our latest flagship model, the all-new 2010 Taurus that has received great acclaim since its first North American North American

"The all-new Taurus not only will bring industry-leading technologies and exceptional craftsmanship to its segment, but it will also define what to expect from Ford's future car portfolio: cutting-edge technology, benchmark driving dynamics, premier quality and advanced safety features. We are truly excited about this opportunity to show Gitex visitors as well as our customers in the Middle East the very result of our focused efforts," Galan said.
Some of the customer-focused technologies available on the 2010 Taurus and most of the new 2010 Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models -- that are normally found on super premium and more expensive models -- include:
* Adaptive Cruise Control An automotive cruise control system that automatically slows down the car if it is moving too close to the vehicle in front of it. A radar or laser unit located behind the grille determines the speed and distance of the vehicle in front. - allows the driver to set the vehicle cruising speed cruising speed n → velocidad f de crucero
cruising speed n → vitesse f de croisière
cruising speed cruise n while using radar technology to monitor traffic travelling up to 600 feet ahead, automatically adjusting speed to help maintain a safe distance between vehicles. * Collision Warning with Brake Support - uses a radar sensor Radio detection and ranging (radar) is used to sense angle, range and velocity of (moving) scatterers in the environment  . Radar sensor figures of merit include maximum range and solid angle, as well as angular, range and velocity resolution. to detect moving vehicles ahead and provides a visual "heads-up" warning signal transmitted across the base of the windshield and an audible warning when slower-moving traffic is detected ahead. The system also pre-charges the brakes and engages an electronic brake assist Brake Assist (BA or BAS) is a generic term for an automobile braking technology that increases braking pressure in an emergency situation.
The first application was developed jointly by Daimler-Benz and TRW/Lucas-Verity. to help the driver stop more quickly. * MyKey - allows parents or fleet administrators to activate a restricted driving mode. When enabled, MyKey features a persistent BeltMinder with audio mute until safety belts are buckled, an earlier low-fuel warning, and consistently engaged AdvanceTrac stability control, Blind Spot monitoring, Cross Traffic Alert and Forward Collision Warning Some modern vehicles have forward collision warning (FCW, FCWS) systems, also known as front collision warning systems, collision warning systems (CWS) and rear end collision warning systems. . Additional programmability includes restrictions on audio volume, limiting top speed to 80 mph and speed chime chime, in music: see bell. warnings at 45, 55 or 65 mph. * SecuriCode Keyless Entry keyless entry: see lock and key. - enables vehicle access by unlocking the driver's door using a five-digit code on the new keypad system flush-mounted on the driver's side B-pillar. * Auto High Beam high beam
The beam of a vehicle's headlight that provides long-range illumination.
Noun 1. high beam - the beam of a car's headlights that provides distant illumination - harnesses sensor technologies to switch headlights to high intensity when no other vehicles are detected, in a range of up to 500 feet for taillight detection, and up to 2,000 feet for oncoming headlight detection. * Rain-Sensing Wipers
The Wipers were a punk rock group formed in Portland, Oregon in 1977 by guitarist Greg Sage, drummer Sam Henry and bassist Dave Koupal. - use an advanced optical sensor to detect the intensity of rain to adjust wiper speed * Easy Fuel Capless Fuel Filler system- is an industry-exclusive feature that self-seals without a traditional fuel cap. * Blind Spot Information System (BLIS BLIS Blind Spot Information System (Volvo)
BLIS Building Lifecycle Interoperable Software
BLIS Blood Information System
BLIS Base Level Inquiry System
BLIS Basic Load Inspection System
BLIS Bell Laboratories Interpretive System ) - consists of two multiple beam radar modules, one each per rear quarter panel. When an approaching vehicle enters the defined blind spot zone, an indicator alert provides warning to the driver in the corresponding side view mirror * Cross Traffic Alert - uses the existing BLIS radar modules to sense oncoming traffic when slowly backing out of a parking spot. This industry-exclusive system functions only while the vehicle is in reverse and warns when cross-traffic appears within three car widths. * Ford SYNC - is the fully integrated, in-vehicle voice-activated communications and entertainment system developed jointly with Microsoft. SYNC's USB port and Bluetooth capability connects to MP3 players, memory sticks and smartphones. * Multi-Contour Seats with Active Motion - are an industry-exclusive feature for both the driver and passenger that reduces fatigue, integrating a six-way lumbar support and subtle rolling pattern massage. * Sony Audio System - features a Class D full-digital amplifier, full DSP (1) (Digital Signal Processor) A special-purpose CPU used for digital signal processing applications (see definition #2 below). It provides ultra-fast instruction sequences, such as shift and add, and multiply and add, which are commonly used in math-intensive capabilities, Dolby Digital 5.1 sound, 12 high-quality Sony speakers and 390 watts of continuous power (RMS). This system brings a rich, true surround listening experience to the vehicle. * Power Sunshade - is a luxury-class feature that shades the back windshield at the touch of a button, keeping the car cooler and more comfortable.
The new model also features side air bags that are designed to deploy up to 30 per cent earlier than traditional air bag systems, it also pioneers the mainstream introduction of active crash-avoidance features such as a segment-first, radar-based forward collision warning system that helps drivers avoid accidents.
In addition, the 2010 Taurus comes standard with Ford's proven and award-winning Duratec 3.5-liter V-6 (263 net hp; 249 lbs-ft net torque) paired with a choice of two new six-speed automatic transmissions which includes an option of SelectShift.
This optional transmission offered on the SEL (SELect) A toggle switch on a printer that takes the printer alternately between online and offline.

2. SEL - Subset-Equational Language. and Limited series features racing-inspired shift control paddles mounted on the steering wheel, while offering the convenience of conventional automatic operation, or a manual shift mode.
"Taurus raises the bar on the full-size sedan segment with an unprecedented offering of technologies typically reserved for luxury cars," Galan said.
"The premium craftsmanship and attention to detail, combined with its outstanding driving experience will redefine what customers should expect in a full-size sedan once they get behind its wheel next quarter," he added. -- TradeArabia News Service
