You might be scared of spiders, but we know someone who is probably more scared—your car. Every year, spiders cause thousands of problems for car owners when they crawl into vehicles’ mechanics and nest. But it looks like Ford might have a solution—the Ford spider screen. This innovative technology prevents creepy crawlies from crawling into your vehicle’s fuel vapor lines, keeping your car running as smoothly as possible.
“Spiders can be a nuisance for our vehicle owners,” said David Gimby, Ford fuel systems engineer. “We studied these species to discern how they nest, then designed an effective device for excluding the larger, problematic spiders from nesting in our cars.”
The Ford spider screen continues to evolve, making sure that fuel vapor lines are clear. This is key to ensuring optimal vehicle performance. This terrific technology can be seen in vehicles across the North American Ford lineup. It will be globally implemented with the launch of the all-new 2016 Ford Focus RS.

Whether you are driving your daily commute or heading off on a road trip, it’s likely that you want your car to have seats that offer superior comfort. Now, Lincoln is taking seat comfort to an entirely new level. The American car maker recently offered an innovative take on the modern car seat. With the ability to move in 30 different ways, massage features, and improved body support, the seats available in the Lincoln Continental concept are the next step in luxury.
“The next frontier to serve the luxury automotive client is a seat that conforms to and supports the body—a seat that feels as if it were personally tailored for you each time,” said Johnathan Line, advanced seat innovation supervisor and technical export.
The Lincoln Continental concept’s 30-way seats use a patented flexible comfort carrier to provide superior comfort. A system combines plastic and a thin layer of foam to flex around the body, taking stress off the shoulders and neck. This seating concept was created after the seat engineers studied the seats in first-class and private airplanes.
