Starting with the 2015 lineup, all new Lincoln vehicles equipped with navigation will come standard with a six-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link, Lincoln and SiriusXM announced this week.
“Lincoln has offered SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link on vehicles since 2009, and we are proud of the confidence Lincoln has shown in satellite-delivered information and entertainment services,” said Rodney Pickett, Senior Vice President, Automotive Partnerships, SiriusXM. “Alongside SiriusXM’s unparalleled variety of audio entertainment, SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link make an already extraordinary driving experience better than ever.”
