Ordering from Amazon just got easier. Now Ford and Lincoln owners (select models only) are eligible for in-car delivery from the online retailer.
Following the initial success of the Key by Amazon In-Car delivery program for newer GM and Volvo cars last year, the super-sized site expanded the options to include even more models. So how does this whole in-car delivery thing work IRL?

You must be an Amazon Prime member and live in one of the 50 eligible-for-delivery cities. and then download the Key by Amazon App. Before going any farther, make sure that your car is compatible. Along with the existing GM and Volvo models, the program is now also open to eligible 2017 and newer Fords with FordPass Connect and 2018 and newer Lincolns with Lincoln Connect.
Download the FordPass or Lincoln Way app (depending on which car you have), create an account and activate in-car delivery, connecting your Amazon Prime accounts to it. Simply select in-car delivery at check-out, place your Amazon order and park your car somewhere that’s publicly accessible. You’ll get a four-hour delivery window and notification updates through the Key by Amazon App.
The delivery driver uses the Amazon Key app to unlock your car for delivery and lock it afterwards. That’s it! And don’t worry about wondering whether the driver remembered the locking step. You’ll get another notification when delivery is complete and the car is locked.
