The all-new Expedition and EcoSport SUVs are adding more ways for drivers and passengers to stream and access entertainment in their vehicles. New features include a dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system, available Wi-Fi hotspot and an exclusive B&O PLAY Premium Audio System by HARMAN.
An increasing number of customers in the U.S. are steaming music, movies, podcasts and television shows to their mobile devices. Ford wanted to make it easier to access these services on the go using the latest technology in its vehicles.
The 2018 Ford Expedition has an available Wi-Fi hotspot which supports up to 10 devices at one time at up to 50 feet away from the vehicle. An all-new dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system allows passengers to watch live TV via SlingPlayer which connects to the user’s home Slingbox account.
Passengers can control the rear seat entertainment system with a downloadable app on their iOS or Android device, and can even stream content from their devices using either Miracast or SmartStream. Content can also be viewed on the dual screens via DVD, HDMI, USB and SD card.
The 2018 Ford EcoSport is also receiving streaming and smartphone-connectivity technology, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM radio and multiple USB ports. Ford is replacing the CD player in the EcoSport with an increased support for on-demand music streaming services, as well as more interior space for mobile devices and other personal items.
