Most of us have always talked to our cars, and if you haven’t, you might be motivated to start now. Ford announced that the Apple Siri System will be made available in some new models. We’re glad to hear it at Cambridge Classic Ford, because let’s face it – who doesn’t enjoy a little conversation?
Ford is pairing with Automatic Labs in order to make every Ford model a little safer and a little smarter. AutomotiveNews said Ford vehicles can already make calls and get directions with SYNC AppLink, but the Apple Siri System will allow drives to use the Press-To-Talk button technology. It also allows access to IFTTT Web Service to track driving expenses, trip details, and even features like turning on house lights when drivers arrive home.
Jim Buczkowski, Ford’s director of electrical and electronic systems said, “Ford believes that voice control is important to a safer and smarter mobility experience. This enables us to provide additional voice-controlled features like Siri for iPhone users — Ford drivers can now access Siri while keeping hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.”
To check out a Ford car, truck, or SUV that will have access to the Apple Siri System, come down to Cambridge Classic Ford. These models include many of the 2011-2015 Explorers, F-Series trucks, the Ford Flex, Taurus, and F-150, among others.
