As a Ford truck owner myself, I’m pretty excited with the announcement that 5 million of Ford’s vehicles will be receiving an upgrade in the form of support for Apple’s Siri Eyes-Free feature.

Vehicles from 2011 to present equipped with MyFord Touch/SYNC will have the ability to download the update from Ford’s website.

The new feature, which is activated by a hardware button, allows drivers to issue voice commands for things like making phone calls, sending texts, setting reminders, checking the weather, getting directions, and playing music.

It’s not a breathtaking announcement from Ford, but Siri Eyes-Free support is sure to make a lot of Ford owners happy for the time being.
