Ford has finally set a time frame for bringing CarPlay and Android Auto to millions of Ford cars. And it’s also adding 4G LTE, it announced Monday.
The systems will launch this year, available on all 2017 model year vehicles with SYNC 3 infotainment systems, starting with an all-new Ford Escape. Plus owners of 2016 SYNC 3 vehicles will be able to upgrade to CarPlay or Android Auto later in the year.
Ford is also deploying 4G LTE with WiFi, which will allow programmed remote start from a phone as announced earlier here.
