Allstate Corp. struck a deal with Ford Motor Co. that will allow some of the automaker’s customers to share data with the insurer for its program that tracks mileage.

The majority of Ford and Lincoln 2020 model-year vehicles with embedded modems will be able to connect with Allstate’s Milewise program, which is currently in 14 states, according to the insurer. Milewise allows customers to pay for insurance based on the number of miles driven.
