Amazon seems to keep finding new ways to make package deliveries more convenient - or invasive, depending on who you ask. After it announced Key for Garage last week, giving customers the option of having items delivered inside their garage, more customers can now enjoy in-car delivery, a service first launched a year ago.
Car-maker Ford has announced that its vehicles, from both the Ford and Lincoln brands, now support Amazon Key in-car delivery across the 50 U.S. cities where the service is currently available. Availability is limited to some models though: Ford cars will have to be from 2017 or newer and support Ford Connect, while Lincoln vehicles need to be from 2018 or newer and support Lincoln Connect. Of course, you'll also need an Amazon Prime account.
To enable in-car delivery for your car, you'll need to have the FordPass or Lincoln Way apps, depending on what car you own and activate it from there. Activation works by linking your Amazon Prime account with your account for the respective car app.
Ford and its sub-brand join General Motors, including brands such as Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick, and GMC, as well as Volvo cars in supporting Amazon's in-car deliveries. You can head to Amazon's website to learn more about the service and check if your car is eligible.
On a slightly different note, Ford also announced that its mobile apps will soon allow customers to book mobile car-washing services for their vehicles, potentially saving them time and proving eco-friendly options for car washes.
