Posted online

Ford is launching technology that will turn older models into Wi-Fi hotspots.

Through FordPass SmartLink, car owners of 2010-17 models will be able to equip their vehicles with the Wi-Fi technology. It also would allow customers to install a remote key fob through a mobile app and look at vehicle health information and location tracking.
