    It's a fact that the hotspot ability would be an additional bill from ATT and most people just tether their phones so it's not a big deal for Ford to leave it out of our trucks BUT a dedicated standalone WiFi hotspot built into the truck is the missing piece that "could" enable wireless CarPlay. As I understand it wireless CarPlay cannot use bluetooth, there's too much data going back and forth so Apple uses wifi to make that happen and the host has to be the vehicle - not the phone.

    That's the holy grail in my opinion.

    I’ve invested a lot of hours with AT&T and Ford tech. They both informed my that my 2018 doesn’t have wifi.

    Ford should tell their salespeople. I was told specially it was supported but they also told me last week they had no infos yet on the 2019 raptors....anyways this is a bummer.
