FORD MOTOR COMPANY TODAY became the first U.S. automaker to announce the availability of factory-installed HD RADIO technology as a standard or optional feature on FORD, LINCOLN and MERCURY vehicles beginning in calendar year 2009.
"Our goal is to offer drivers the best new features and the most choice," said FORD Dir./Electrical System Engineering JIM BUCZKOWSKI. "The great local content, the crystal-clear sound quality and the variety of channels and data services offered by HD RADIO is exactly what customers are beginning to expect in their vehicles. Moving forward, a radio will no longer be considered competitive if it doesn’t include digital technology."
