See You Later CD Player


The day has finally arrived. Your new Ford Fusion is likely to have excellent gas mileage, possibly an awesome computer system, and all the other bells and whistles you would like.  Now and in the coming years though, your Utah vehicle might more than likely see one less feature: the CD player.  With the introduction of dashboard computers, Bluetooth-linking, and mp3 economy, the good old CD just isn’t what it used to be.  Rather, it’s going the way of the VHS in that it is being replaced with something newer, better, and far more likely to be used.  Something to be sad about?  Probably not.  According to a USA Today article on the topic, more and more people are finding their CD slots as hindrances, not luxuries.  With cars like the Ford Fusion becoming more and more complex, that middle-dash area is valuable.  You don’t need that extra hole taking up space when a tiny USB will better connect drivers to their entire music collection at will.  In the coming years, CDs might still be seen in some vehicles, but they’re likely to become more of a rarity in brand new cars.  Just another way places like Utah are taking a step towards the automotive future.
