Posted October 20, 2018 10:16:08When will the D-street car come back?
That’s the question posed by one of the cars that Ford’s big car division is working on.
Ford’s D-series of cars has been plagued by reliability problems, including a failure in late 2015 that left about 500 cars stranded for weeks in the United States.
The D-line was built at a cost of $1.2 billion and was unveiled in 2007.
It was then a product that relied on software and sensors that had to be programmed with a series of different inputs, with the company adding a host of software features that had no place in the road-going, road-trains-driven, electrified vehicle that it is today.
In 2018, however, the company announced that the D is now being redesigned, with new software that will offer improved driver feedback and better vehicle-to-infrastructure integration.
We can’t say what exactly will be changed in the future, but it’s clear that Ford is going to be pushing for more robust software to support the D’s evolution.
