Can I Upgrade My Ford SYNC® to SYNC® 3?

Do you have the first-generation Ford SYNC® infotainment system? If so, you may be curious whether you can upgrade to Ford SYNC® 3 to take advantage of the new features of the latest version. At this time, though, Naperville drivers cannot complete such an upgrade. Unfortunately, new vehicles that have the SYNC® system were built with specific hardware, which makes an upgrade from SYNC® to SYNC® 3 impossible.

Despite this, there’s no question that each iteration of the SYNC® system provides Montgomery drivers with plenty of convenience, entertainment, and connectivity. Make the most of the system you have and “Sync my ride” with River View Ford!

Ford SYNC® Features

  • Handsfree Commands: Place a phone call, send a text message, request playlists and podcasts – do it all with the power of your voice via Ford SYNC®. At the same time, avoid distractions and fidgeting with your phone while you drive for ultimate on-road safety.
  • Ford AppLink®: Your favorite apps are still accessible as you drive around Yorkville thanks to Ford AppLink®. Your voice and your steering-wheel-mounted controls are all that you need to navigate AppLink®.
  • SYNC® Entertainment: Play your favorite audiobook, tune into your weekly podcast, and turn on your music when you connect your Apple or Android device via Bluetooth®. Otherwise, let SYNC® do the work. If you want a mix of a specific genre, place a voice command, and SYNC® will return a unique playlist for your enjoyment.
  • SYNC® Media Hub: A convenient USB port allows you and passengers to plug in and charge devices, sync up your favorite music from a separate device, or connect a flash drive to load SYNC® software updates.

Ford SYNC® Safety Features

Ford SYNC® functions as more than an information and entertainment hub. It also looks out for your safety. When your phone is connected to the system via Bluetooth®, you can call for help in the event of an accident via 911 Assist. If you find you can’t reach the controls or make the request, SYNC® will automatically contact emergency responders, providing them with crucial details of the accident, including location and time.
