Ought to the driving force need to blast some demise steel on his strategy to the church (we all know he shouldn’t, however actually, who’s going to know?) he can use the identical Ford SYNC infotainment system and 15.5-in tombstone-shaped show each different Mach-E proprietor will get, whereas different commonplace tools consists of keyless entry and a rear-view digital camera.
