Technology Spotlight – How SYNC® works and makes your drive easier and more convenient
Over the past several years, infotainment systems have become remarkably smart and full of convenient features, such as voice-integrated controls. Ford’s latest innovation in voice-activated technology is the state-of-the-art SYNC® 3 system, which will perfectly suit your connected lifestyle.
User-friendly system: The SYNC® 3 system can be navigated in two main ways: by using voice commands or by navigating by touch on its large color touchscreen display. Both options are easily accessible to drivers, with voice commands giving you hands-free access to operations while driving.
Convenient smartphone integration: The system features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, giving you convenient access to your smartphone’s calling and texting capabilities, music, and GPS navigation directly on the system’s display or by using voice commands.
SiriusXM® Satellite Radio & Traffic and Travel Link: SiriusXM® radio offers access to enjoy over 150 channels, and the available Traffic and Travel Link service monitors traffic information, local fuel prices, weather forecasts, and more.
Ford + Alexa: The SYNC 3® system gives you access to everything that Amazon Alexa has to offer while on the road.
SYNC Connect®: In SYNC Connect-equipped vehicles, you can access your vehicle directly from the FordPass™ app, including locating your vehicle, start/stopping the engine, lock/unlocking the doors, and checking fuel level. SYNC Connect® also includes a convenient Wi-Fi® hotspot that you can connect up to 10 devices to.
