The Ford Motor Company is expanding the placement of the Sync 3 infotainment system into all 2017 models. Back in 2007, Ford made history by becoming the first U.S. automotive maker with a technology system in place that integrates with the driver’s mobile phone into the dashboard when they teamed up with Microsoft. Your friends at Ford continue to make history by being one of the first automakers to place a uniform technology system in all models.
The Sync 3 infotainment system was introduced to Ford drivers in the 2016 Ford Escape, America’s favorite crossover vehicle. When it came to 2016 models though, not all models possessed the SYNC infotainment system. For instance, those who bought a standard 2016 Ford Explorer were previously left without a Sync 3 infotainment system.
But starting in Fall, all brand new 2017 Ford vehicles will have the infotainment system. Every single car, SUV, EV, and light truck in the entire Ford line up will possess this feature, so no longer will customer have to fret about whether or not their new Ford will have a Sync 3. All vehicles will now be compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto through their Sync 3 system.
The Ford Sync 3 was a massive improvement when it comes to infotainment systems. Ford responded to critics by creating a vastly better system than the one present in previous models. This version of the infotainment system in more usable and more convenient than ever. With a new look that is far from rudimental, the Sync 3 is everything you want out of your dashboard technology. The simplicity and speed of the system are two of the most attractive aspects of the Sync 3 system.
Ford recently released the Sync 3 AppLink Emulator in an effort to ease the cost of making apps for the Sync platform. The developer simply needs a smartphone and a computer with emulator software. Ford stated the company has over 15,000 registered AppLink developers and almost 100 AppLink apps across the world. Ford continues to pave the way in the automotive industry and Waldorf Ford is ecstatic to be along for the ride.
