Ford Will Soon Offer Bacteria-Trapping Air Filters As Standard

After offering it in selected vehicles in Europe, Ford will start rolling out all-new standard certified cabin air filters to cover a majority of its lineup by the end of 2023.

Known as the Ford MicronAir Protect in Europe, it’s now been renamed to Ford Refresh95. Assembled in the U.S., Ford Refresh95 is Ford’s new standard advanced cabin air filter.

As air moves through a vehicle’s heating, air conditioning and ventilation system, Ford Refresh95 aims to help reduce microscopic particles that can originate both inside and outside a vehicle’s interior. This is particularly important because, according to the EPA, particles less than 10 microns in diameter, particularly those less than 2.5 microns, pose the greatest risk to health.

The Ford Refresh95 air filter doesn’t just trap particles 30 times smaller than a single human hair, but it filters out up to 99 percent of some allergens such as pollen and dust. It can also reduce airborne concentrations of bacteria-sized particles as well as the particulate matter found in smog and soot.

Ford says the filter was put through a comprehensive third-party lab certification testing including pressure drop testing to verify that it’ll work throughout the recommended maintenance service interval.

Ford Refresh95 will roll out in the fourth quarter of 2021 for select vehicles, while customers with compatible vehicles will be able to purchase them from dealerships soon.
