Sam says that the Ford F series is traditionally the top-selling brand in the US for over 40 decades. Ford builds one F150 every hour. This year, along with BMW, Ford is developing electronics that will enable over the air software updates, and at 200 teraflops, the F150 will be as powerful as a supercomputer. One upcoming feature will be the active driver system that's available on the Mustang Mach E. That will make Ford's F150 one of the first trucks with hands-free operability.

Clyde heard about the Jeep that got hacked and worries that it could happen to his car since he connects his phone to the car with USB. Leo says that simply connecting the phone to the car stereo isn't sufficient for this. The Jeep hack involved using the car's built-in 3G access. The real flaw is that the entertainment unit of the car and the computer running the car (braking, ignition, etc), are not physically separated. They are connected in many cars through the CamBus, or internal car network.
