Ford Decides AM Radio Should Remain In Future Vehicles
Ford previously stated it wouldn’t release AM radio capabilities in future vehicles it manufactures. But on Tuesday, Ford CEO Jim Farley tweeted that they were reversing that decision and all 2024 Ford and Lincoln models will be able to tune in to AM radio. For the two electric vehicles released without AM radio capabilities, a software update will be offered to restore AM radio.

AM radio is also able to operate at lower frequencies, with longer wavelengths. That enables it to pass through solid objects and travel further than other radio waves.
