SmartLink Retroactive Connectivity for Ford and Lincoln

SmartLink Retroactive Connectivity

In recent years, Ford has stayed ahead of the competition when it comes to connectivity, but this wasn’t always the case. Older Ford models, specifically those between 2010 and 2016, lacked several common features, but the automaker is taking steps to rectify the problem. A new SmartLink retroactive connectivity system will soon be available for older Ford and Lincoln vehicles.

The new SmartLink system will provide owners with a range of new features that are available on current models, but weren’t offered at the time their vehicle was purchased. New features include remote engine start, maintenance notifications, and more.

“Offering [SmartLink] through our dealerships is another way to keep us connected with our customers and earn their loyalty,” said Stephen Odell, Ford’s executive vice president of Global Marketing, Sales and Service.

Notably, Ford is upping the ante with its closest competitors by offering a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot capable of connecting to up to eight devices. The connection will be supported through partnerships with Verizon and Delphi.

The tech-savvy move makes Ford the first in the industry to offer retroactive connectivity to customers. Users will be able to schedule service through SmartLink as well.

SmartLink retroactive connectivity will officially launch this summer. Pricing has yet to be announced.

We here at Hassett Pre-Owned are happy to see older Ford and Lincoln models becoming better than ever!

Mustang. The name says it all— unbridled power… quick as the wind… and incredibly nimble on any terrain. This latest edition, from a long line of pedigree winners, is leaner and meaner… and, as expected, is decked out with the hottest technology trappings and creature comforts— many as standard features. Unmistakably, this pony is sleeker than the last stable of Mustangs, with a wider track on chassis that’s primed for the type of powerful, spirited driving that makes you want to hit the open road and never back off on the accelerator. The new Mustang GT Convertible is comfortably cool, versatile to drive, and designed with a fresh look and style that will definitely turn heads. You’ve got to check it out in person.
