Sirius music for all Ford brands

Ford and Sirius expand earlier pact to have the satellite radio as a factory-installed option in all Ford brands through 2011.

Ford and Sirius Satellite radio expanded an earlier pact to have the satellite radio as a factory-installed option in all seven Ford brands through 2011. Apart from Ford and Lincon Mercury, Sirius already has agreements with Volvo and Mazda. Other brands covered are Land Rover, Jaguar and Aston Martin, the firms said.

In total, nearly 90 percent of Ford and Lincoln Mercury vehicles will have Sirius as a factory-installed option for the 2008 model year. The Detroit-based carmaker had earlier committed 1 million Sirius subscriptions in 2006 and 2007 model years.
