Ford files patent application to remote engine revving system

According to 7th Mustang and other Ford enthusiasts sites, Ford is working on a new technology that allows vehicle owners to remotely rev their engines. According to Ford Authority, the patent was filed on November 3, 2020 and published May 5, 2022. According to the application, the technology would allow vehicle owners and operators to rev their engines without the need to press the accelerator. The vehicle’s engine could be engaged at “varying distances from the vehicle,” or remotely.
This seems almost like an idea that was created purely for car enthusiasts. Ford isn’t known for its ability to make a loud engine growl when you touch a button.
While the Detroit automaker and its contemporaries have mostly stood by while Silicon Valley companies such as Tesla have received all the media attention for the unconventional and sometimes irreverent approach they have taken to new vehicle features, Silicon Valley companies like Tesla have been able to reap all the attention. Boombox mode by Tesla, for instance, allows you to broadcast custom audio outside the car, including fart sounds.
Ford isn’t ready to transform its vehicles into rolling pillows. This patent application shows that Ford is open to exploring new features to share joy with customers.
Ford Authority has noted that the company has filed several patent applications in recent months that are aimed at enthusiasts. These include a drift mode, and remote parking. Owners who attend auto shows and want to showcase their car’s engine sounds but don’t have to go inside would love a remote engine revving feature.
A patent application does not necessarily indicate that Ford is in the process of installing this technology in all its vehicles. Patent applications are simple to file, but can be difficult to get approved.
