What is Ford SYNC®?

2020 Ford Edge Interior

What is Ford SYNC®, and how can it enhance your drives around Peoria? This exclusive infotainment provides you with handsfree, voice-activated control of phone calls, music selection, navigation, and so much more. The best part is, all-new Ford models come with Ford SYNC®, with the option to upgrade to Ford SYNC® 3. So if you’re thinking to yourself, “I need to sync my ride,” then it’s time to learn more about this technology, courtesy of the team at Mike Murphy Ford.

Ford SYNC® Features

As we mentioned, every Ford vehicle offers the base Ford SYNC® system, which provides the following suite of advanced features for drivers from East Peoria and beyond:

  • Voice Commands: Keep your focus on the road while still making phone calls or sending texts without fidgeting with your cell phone or infotainment system. All you have to do is clearly state what you wish to do.
  • Music Control: Again, using your voice, change songs and pick new ones via SYNC®. Access your personal music collection with Bluetooth®, or listen to SiriusXM® radio.
  • App Connectivity: The AppLink® program through SYNC® connects you to Spotify and Pandora®, along with some of your other favorite apps.
  • Enhanced Safety: The Ford SYNC® connectivity and entertainment features are certainly nice, but this system also promotes safety with 911 Assist®, which connects with emergency personnel in the event of an accident.

Ford SYNC® 3 Features

Upgrade to Ford SYNC® 3 for all of the features previously mentioned, along with additional innovative features, such as:

  • Ford+Alexa: Connect the Ford+Alexa App to SYNC® 3 AppLink® to access voice navigation, traffic information, and more than 30,000 available services. You can also control any of your Amazon smart home devices or take advantage of Amazon Prime shopping.
  • FordPass™: When equipped with SYNC Connect®, you can use FordPass™ to convert your Ford into a Wi-Fi® hotspot or check on vehicle information like location and fuel levels.
  • Available SiriusXM® and Travel Link®: Easily enter your destination with this available feature and get audible turn-by-turn directions and up-to-date traffic and weather information.
