Amerigon Incorporated reports that Ford Motor Company has selected the Amerigon Climate Control Seat(TM) (CCS(TM)) system to be offered as a front-seat option in the 2010 Ford Taurus Limited, which is expected to be in showrooms this summer.
A complete redesign of Ford's flagship sedan, the 2010 Ford Taurus is the first full-size Ford sedan to offer CCS.
The new 2010 Ford Taurus combines a sleek new design with refined driving dynamics, impeccable craftsmanship, transformative new technology, and maximum fuel efficiency.
CCS, an actively heated and cooled seat system, delivers year-round comfort to automotive seat occupants by providing both active heating and cooling, the company states. The system is completely independent of the automobile's heating and air conditioning system and does not reduce power available to the engine. It also emits no CFCs or other gases and is completely friendly to the environment.
"We have a long and proud history with Ford that dates back to 2000 due primarily, we believe, to our responsiveness, quality and engineering innovation, and consumer demand for our value enhancing CCS system," says Amerigon President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel R. Coker. "We look forward to many more years of our expanding relationship with Ford."
Other vehicles from Ford that offer CCS are the Ford Expedition, the Ford F-150, Lincoln MKT, the Lincoln MKZ, the Lincoln MKX, the Lincoln MKS and the Lincoln Navigator.
