When you buy a new car, the technology will be out of date within a few short years. That’s just how it is. The good news is that Ford has your back. If you own a Ford or Lincoln that was built between 2010-2017, the new FordPass SmartLink will give it an upgrade. Just install this dongle into your car’s OBD II port and your car gets smarter. It uses a Verizon LTE connection to give you all of the new features in your older car, like smartphone connectivity, FordPass app compatibility, and it is also a WiFi hotspot. It will be available later this year for $17 a month plus installation.
