You’ll Be Able to Benefit from SYNC 3 Technology with All-New Ford Models

August 22nd, 2016 by

Ford have always been a manufacturer trusted by Naperville and Oswego drivers to deliver advanced technologies, so it should come as no surprise to learn that all 2017 models will be available with a SYNC3 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and Google Android Auto. Whether you drive a car like the Fusion, SUVs like the Escape or Expedition, a truck like the F-150, or an electrified vehicle like the C-Max, you’ll be able to take advantage of the most up-to-date automotive amenities. Keep reading to learn more about some of these advanced features.


In the words of Jeffrey Hannah, “SYNC 3 is already a major leap forward in terms of functionality, simplicity, and user experience.” From now on, you’ll receive that kind of state-of-the-art user experience in every model.

This is a piece of technology that is forward-thinking through and through. An easy-to-read color capacitive touchscreen is incredibly responsive and comes with a convenient swipe feature, but the most compelling addition is real-world voice command technology.

You’ll be able to control features such as:

  • Hands-Free Calling
  • No-Extra-Charge 911 Assist
  • SiriusXM Satellite Radio
  • Music Search and Control
  • Satellite-Linked Navigation

You’ll also be able to use the SYNC AppLink system, which brings a growing selection of your favorite mobile apps to your daily drive, including Pandora internet radio. All you’ll need to do is say ‘thumbs-up’ to store a song, and you’ll be able to find saved stations, skip a song, or play a different track simply by saying the right word. Even with all of this cutting-edge technology improving your drive, you won’t need to worry about updates; they come automatically over Wi-Fi.

Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto

2017 model year Fords will also provide Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto technology.

Features include:

  • Apple CarPlay: Use your iPhone to get directions optimized for current traffic, make calls, send and receive messages, or listen to music.
  • Google Android Auto: Use Google voice search, maps, music and more through your Ford’s onboard controls.
