The FordPass App contains all sorts of features that aim to give us more control over our Blue Oval vehicles using our smartphones. This includes the ability to lock and unlock doors remotely, without the need for a key, as the automaker demonstrates in this quick video. This action couldn’t be much easier either, given the fact that it’s operated using a button present right on the home screen of the FordPass app.
That means all we have to do to lock or unlock the doors of a Ford vehicle is pull up the app and push the lock/unlock button. Simple as can be, and also quite handy if we’ve got our other hand full with things like groceries or multiple dogs, as is the case in the video. It’s also possible to start the vehicle from this screen, which is a nice feature when it’s really cold or really hot outside.
Locking and unlocking are just two of the many connected vehicle features present in the FordPass app. Owners can also set a start schedule, so the vehicle automatically starts and is ready to go when they are. Additionally, the app contains all the pertinent data someone might want to see at a glance, including a vehicle’s mileage, location, oil life, fuel level, and even maintenance intervals.
Ford Mustang Mach-E owners get even more features from the app, including the ability to check their charge level, access Phone as a Key (which allows owners to access the vehicle without taking their phone out of their pocket), find charging stations on the go, and much, much more.
Setting up a vehicle in the app is simple as well, and requires only the vehicle’s VIN number to add to a virtual “garage.” Then, owners can enjoy all of these benefits and more.
