Delphi gets Ford call for Sirius radios

Ford will work with consumer electronics maker Delphi to supply Sirius satellite radio receivers for four 2006 models.

Ford will work with consumer electronics maker Delphi to supply Sirius satellite radio receivers for four 2006 models, the companies announced Wednesday at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Ford's decision to have Sirius radio as a factory-installed option in the Ford F-150, Ford Explorer, Lincoln Mark LT and Mercury Mountaineer models is part of an ambitious scheme. The Detroit-based carmaker said last week that it intends to sign up at least 1 million subscribers to Sirius radio.

The Michigan-based Delphi already supplies AM/FM/CD playback head units to Ford.
