With features like an independent rear suspension, high-quality interior, world-class driving dynamics, and a specific OEM-first attribute, the 2015 Mustang is shaping up to be quite the modern sports car. And it’s possible that we will be able to add one more item to the list of things that make the 2015 ‘Stang a modern vehicle: a built-in and always-on connection to the internet.
According to sources, the sixth-gen Mustang will be the first Ford to feature an always-on data connection enabling drivers to control their new pony car using a new smartphone app to perform functions like starting, locking, unlocking and locating the pony. Think OnStar RemoteLink… by Ford.
Corroborating the rumor is another 2015 model-year vehicle from Ford Motor Company: the Lincoln MKC. The compact CUV is the first FoMoCo vehicle to feature an always-on connection to the web, thereby introducing users to a brand new mobile app that will allow owners to perform the aforementioned functions.
Expect to hear (a lot) more on the 2015 Ford Mustang and its features at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit come January.
