Ford SYNC®/SYNC® 3 Technology: An Overview

When you buy a Ford at Sheridan Ford, your car will come equipped with advanced technology designed to enhance each driver’s travels. One such technology, Ford’s SYNC Technology, creates a new level of entertainment and convenience while driving. With both the SYNC base and updated SYNC 3, there are an array of similar features, like voice recognition and 911 Assist® (contacts emergency services in case of emergency).

Ford SYNC®

Standard Ford SYNC® makes it easy to connect while on the go, whether you’d like to stay connected to your favorite music or family and friends. Using Bluetooth® audio1, simply say what song you’d like to hear (if it’s in your phone’s music library) or use a voice-activated search to find and listen to any song you may not have on your phone.

Say the name of the person or the phone number you’d like to call. There are also buttons on your steering wheel that allow you to do this as well.

Connect the compatible apps on your phone to SYNC® with SYNC® AppLink®. Again, using voice-responsive technology and the buttons on your steering wheel you can do things like “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” to a song on Pandora® radio.

Ford SYNC® 3

Ford SYNC® 3 shares many similarities of the standard SYNC® technology but builds upon it. Voice-activated technology, hands-free calling and Bluetooth connectivity are all included, but this update allows for traffic information, turn-by-turn directions and a LCD touchscreen information display. This update also allows you to control your climate.

AppLink® with SYNC 3 lets you listen to music apps and even order a pizza on the go. Connect to your Alexa to access voice navigation, traffic updates and even Amazon Prime.
