Today we’re experiencing quite a serious snow storm in Denver, Colorado but we predict within a matter of days, Spring will show up. With warmer temperatures, our thoughts often drift to thinking about buying a new car. The new cars on the market now are definitely on our trend watch list!

Technological changes to computers and mobile devices are now finding their way into new automobile designs. These new technologies have been developed to make life easier for drivers of cars, trucks and SUVs. Here are some trends in tech development to consider for your next automotive purchase.


Surprisingly, digital video recorders (DVRs) are finding their place in the automobile market. These little recorders mount on the dashboard and record video into a flash memory card. Potentially, drivers might have a reduction on their automobile insurance as they provide a record of any accidents, which may show who is at fault.

Wireless Networks

More vehicles are being manufactured with built-in wireless networks. Either using the same data service as your cellphone or another one specific to the device, tablets are seeing an integral use for drivers and passengers. These devices let you surf the internet, stream music and videos, and even talk on the phone while keeping your hands on the wheel. These devices are basically computers and can provide you with travel directions, monitor distance traveled, and can provide calculated gas mileage.

Electric Cars

Gas mileage may be maximized with the increase of electric cars. The Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, and VW are all electric cars making their way into the market. Don’t be fooled into thinking these cars don’t pack enough power. Tesla Motors provides several models with varying charge capacities and power to meet your needs.

These new technologies can help make driving safer, make it more enjoyable, and save you money with better mileage. Keep these trends in tech in mind when considering your next automotive purchase.
