Satellite Navigation and SIRIUS Radio Grow. Responding to another consumer trend, Ford is dramatically increasing the number of vehicles with DVD-based navigation systems and SIRIUS satellite radio.
"In 2005, less than half of our vehicles were available with a navigation system, satellite radio or auxiliary audio inputs. For 2007, we're doubling the models available with a navigation system and quadrupling the number with SIRIUS satellite radio," Fields explains. "In addition, we're increasing the number of models with auxiliary audio jacks from zero to nearly half of our lineup."
Ford's intuitive, DVD-based navigation system will be new for 2007 on the Ford Fusion, F-150, Mustang, Mercury Milan and Lincoln Mark LT.
Also, for 2007, Ford Motor Company is broadening its relationship with SIRIUS satellite radio, adding the feature on Ford Five Hundred, Fusion, Mustang, Ford SiriusExpedition, Ranger, Sport Trac, Mercury Montego, Milan and Lincoln Navigator. Ford's new vehicles -- Ford Edge, Ford Shelby GT500 and Lincoln MKX -- will offer SIRIUS radio when they go on sale. By the 2008-model year, Ford will offer available SIRIUS satellite radio in 90 percent of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.
