We’ve talked about vehicle soundproofing in the past but this video just serves as proof that even a little bit of soundproofing work can go a long way. You can hear how loud this guy’s radio is when the car doors are open, so imagine how loud it would still be if he had not installed any soundproofing materials. And yes, he did include some mass loaded vinyl sheets in the mix!

The February 2011 issue of Truckin’ was just released and inside we found a great article that talked about the new 2011 Ford F150 – specifically the engine. While all of the new engine models were worth mentioning, the new EcoBoost model was significant. This particular model includes extra soundproofing, dulling the sound of the engine as you drive.
Some people don’t find this to be a perk, though. They’re afraid that the soundproofing will make it harder to hear sounds associated with the turbo features malfunctioning. What do you think?

Considered to meet the mini-van and the station wagon at some sort of absurd half-way point, the Lincoln MKT is the newest model by Ford for the 2010 year. It’s actually pretty cool, giving those who need the space of a mini-van the chance to experience the luxury of a smaller SUV. Marketing isn’t global – it’s aimed at a pretty distinct niche market.
It’s still an incredible car, though. It’s great for families, has a sleek exterior design, and features a beautifully modeled interior cabin complete with – you guessed it – soundproofing. The folks at The Car Guide seem to really like it. Find out more about what the car has to offer (you know, other than soundproofing) by reading their review.
