There’s no denying that some of the new models available throughout the automotive industry are incredibly loud. Sometimes, such as in the case of the new Ford Mustang lineup here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, that loudness is not only loved, it’s part of the experience. But when you’re looking for a family vehicle or a road trip vehicle, you want the ride to be as quiet as possible. And that’s where the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid and its new Active Noise Control capabilities come into play. Thanks to its new Active Noise Control system, the 2020 Explorer Hybrid’s ride is quieter than ever. But how does it work? We’re going to find that out right here.

As we mentioned in our introduction, the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid provides you with a ride so quiet, the only way you’ll know the engine is turned on is because you’ll be driving down the road. In fact, a ride in a new Ford Explorer Hybrid at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, is as close to silent as you’re going to get without entering a sensory deprivation tank. And you get that silent ride thanks to the 2020 Explorer Hybrid’s new Active Noise Control system. This system utilizes strategically placed microphones hidden throughout the interior of the 2020 Explorer Hybrid. Those microphones identify unwanted frequencies and cancel that noise out by producing opposing sound waves through the vehicle’s speakers, giving you the quiet ride you’ve been looking for.
“Think of it as thunder on a stormy night. These sound waves bounce around us in a contained area, then the vehicle’s audio system speakers negate the thunder, essentially silencing the environment.” – Parker Lewis, Ford Noise, Vibration and Harshness Engineering Manager
