Get Free FordPass™ Connect Services for Your Vehicle

If you’ve been enjoying your free trial of FordPass™ Connect services, you’ll be happy to know that Ford has decided to make these services complimentary. It is ending its subscription program and will be the first full-line automaker to offer these remote services for free.

“This approach truly sets us apart in the industry,” says Jason Sprawka, director, customer experience manager. “We know that keeping our customers connected and engaged is key to building a deeper relationship with them.”

FordPass™ Connect gives you access to certain features on your Ford vehicle, no matter where you are. You can start the engine, lock and unlock the doors, and even locate your vehicle on a map. These newly free services should be a big bonus for customers and may even draw in shoppers from competing brands. Other brands offer similar services for as much as $14.99 a month.

One especially beneficial safety feature that comes with FordPass™ Connect is 911 Assist. With 911 Assist, your Ford vehicle will use its SYNC® technology to automatically notify emergency responders if you are involved in an accident, connecting through your phone and sending out your GPS coordinates if your airbags deploy.

FordPass™ was first introduced in 2016 and has grown in popularity each year. Currently, more than 1.5 million owners use the service. Visit us here at Midwest Ford to learn more about this convenient and practical technology.

What Is FordPass?

In 2016, Ford debuted its very own mobile app, known as FordPass. With this tool, you can access features for your Ford vehicle that will enhance your lifestyle and make everyday driving easier. A membership to FordPass is now free and available to anyone. Here’s some of what you can expect from this innovative system.

Remote Control

When you download FordPass and connect it to your Ford vehicle with SYNC® Connect, you can use the app to maintain and monitor your Ford. FordPass with SYNC® Connect offers remote start and stop functions, as well as remote locking and unlocking. You can even schedule when your Ford vehicle will start so it’s ready to go when you need it.

Vehicle Information

In addition to controlling a connected Ford vehicle with FordPass, you can also use it to access relevant information, including tire pressure, fuel and fluid levels, and even the vehicle’s service history.

Fuel Finder

It’s often tempting to drive around looking for the lowest gas prices. With FordPass, you can skip this step and use your phone to search for gas by brand or grade and compare prices at stations near you.

FordPay

The FordPay feature lets you make payments virtually from within your FordPass app, adding extra convenience to your daily routine.
