Ford's Key For Transit

Ford was among the largest and most prominent exhibitors and was showing its latest line of Transit Connect vans for North American and European commercial markets. Perhaps the coolest new feature for the 2014 model year is MyKey, an option available this fall that allows fleet operators to tie vehicular functions such as top speed and radio volume to particular a vehicle's keys. The new model year also introduces several larger vehicles and a rear liftgate option. The bailout-free company also was demonstrating SYNC AppLink, a new voice activated capability unveiled earlier this year that plays music stored in the library of an Amazon Cloud MP3 Player.
