One of the newest innovations to come to the Ford lineup is Key by Amazon. This enables delivery people to deliver packages from Amazon inside of your car for safe keeping. Amazon’s goal for this service is to help prevent packages from being stolen from your front porch. This feature is available exclusively to Amazon Prime members.
The best part? You don’t have to go out and buy a new Ford to get this functionality. Instead, drivers of Fords from the 2017 model year and more recent years can add the functionality via FordPass Connect (assuming the Ford model has that feature enabled).
So how does it work? You will receive a notification when the delivery is about to occur and when it is complete. The delivery person will only have access to your vehicle during that delivery period and must verify that the vehicle has been locked after delivery. You also have the ability to reroute the delivery (like if you unexpectedly move your car) or reschedule (like if you will be driving your car all day).
Expect more innovations like this from Ford in the coming years. For example, Ford is already considering a similar perk: mobile car washes. This entails exactly what you’d imagine. While you sit in the office or just enjoy a day at home, car washers will come to your Ford and wash it for you.
