My '16 Escape was supposed to be upgradeable to CarPlay. It was. But you had to install a new hub. I bought it and did it myself for about $100.I refuse to buy any car that doesn’t fully support Apple CarPlay at this point. Besides integration with our HomeKit equipped house, the security of knowing CarPlay can keep getting better despite the hardware in the vehicle getting older is a real selling point. At some point the hardware will be limiting I’m sure, but you’ve bought yourself some time by relying on your smartphone to be the brains of the operation.
