Ford's SYNC does 3G WiFi, and with the help of Autonet so do GM (http://www.autoblog.com/2009/10/27/gm-to-offer-in-vehicle-wifi-on-select-models/), Chrysler (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/09/15/chryslers-in-car-wi-fi-makes-weak-first-impression/), Avis (http://www.autoblog.com/2007/05/22/avis-to-offer-internet-in-cars-for-10-95-day/), some school buses (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/05/18/25-school-districts-now-offering-autonet-wifi-on-school-buses/) and now Subaru. The Japanese automaker has put WiFi on the options list of the 2011 Subaru Outback (http://www.autoblog.com/model/outback) for the pretty standard price of $499 as a dealer-installed option. That'll get you an encrypted connection good within 150 feet of the car, and it can be used while the car is in motion. The subscription is $29 per month after that, and Subaru is gracious enough to pick up the first three months for you. Follow the jump for the full press release.
