Ford has often been accused by its closest rival GM of not offering the best in terms of in-car tech features, which isn’t exactly wrong. Compared to the Chevrolet Silverado, the Ford F-150 has admittedly not matched up in that department.
One of the things GM recently pointed out was the lack of connectivity in the F-150, whereas the Silverado comes with the optional OnStar 4G LTE feature accompanied by Wi-Fi Hotspot.
Well, the Detroit automaker won’t be able to keep poking at Ford in this regard anymore as Blue Oval has just announced that it would be adding Wi-Fi Hotspot connectivity to its all-new Sync 3 infotainment system come 2018.
But it’s not just heading to the F-150, as the entire Ford lineup would eventually come equipped with Sync 3. While GM’s 4G LTE and Wi-Fi Hotspot is only available on the Chevy Colorado (not all) and Silverado pickups, even the Ford Mustang would have Wi-Fi in its cabin.
That’s important because the biggest beef between Ford and GM involves their ponies, and if the Camaro isn’t given the kind of connectivity the Colorado and Silverado enjoy, then it would continue to be left behind by the Mustang.
