Ford Adds Sync 3 to All 2017 Models

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.

Ford-SYNC-3

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.

Summer Road Trip Checklist

It’s the middle of July, and you know what that means—summer vacation!

Millions of folks are packing up their cars this summer with only the sun, the sand and relaxation on their minds. But before you set sail for your summer trip, review our checklist to make sure your vehicle is travel-ready.shutterstock_259676957.jpg

  1. Check your tire pressure and tread. Low tire pressure can mean higher gas mileage, and too high of pressure can cause a flat tire, or worse, a blowout.
  2. Top off your fluids. Be sure to check your windshield wiper fluid, transmission fluid and coolant before hitting the road. Taking these few steps can save you a big hassle and a big chunk of change in the long run.
  3. Clean your windows. It might seem like a silly item on the checklist, but visibility is key to safety when traveling. Take a few minutes to wash your windows—a nighttime glare on your windshield can make seeing a very difficult task.
  4. Get an oil change. Depending on what your Ford vehicle manual portrays, it is a good idea to change your oil every 3,000-7,000 miles. Changing your oil on a regular basis will keep your car running smooth.
  5. Have your brakes checked. Be sure to have a technician look over your brakes before you begin your journey—safety first!
  6. Check your belts and suspension. Make sure that your vehicle is road-ready by checking all of your belts and your suspension. A broken belt can leave you stranded, and that’s no way to start a vacation!
  7. Replace your windshield wiper blades. Don’t let a streaky windshield or heavy rain slow you down—make sure your windshield wiper blades are up-to-par.
  8. Check your lights. It’s always a good idea to do a walk-around of your car prior to leaving for your destination. Have someone sit in the car and turn on and off all of the lights (including turn signals) to ensure all lightbulbs are working correctly.
  9. Run an air conditioning test. Hot temperatures can make riding in a car without air conditioning nothing short of miserable. Have a technician make sure your AC is running nice and cool!
  10. Conduct a transmission check. Transmission failure can be a long and very expensive ordeal. Preventative maintenance and checking your transmission functionality before your trip could save you a ton of time, and money!

If you’re planning a summer road trip and need some help with conducting your road trip checklist, make an appointment with Waldorf Ford’s Service Department. Our technicians are ready and waiting to help you get your vehicle road-ready!
