Ford has announced that next year, Ford cars can be equipped with the new Ford SYNC 3 system. This updated system has an easier-to-use interface, more conversational voice recognition functions, and an updated graphical interface.
“Ford is delivering an easier way for customers to stay connected,” said Raj Nair, Ford chief technical officer and group vice president, Global Product Development, in a statement. “SYNC 3 is another step forward in delivering connectivity features customers most want, and they tell us this kind of technology is an important part of their decision to buy our vehicles.”
To develop this next-generation system, Ford built upon its experience with more than 10 million SYNC-equipped vehicles on the road around the world. It also used more than 22,000 customer comments and suggestions along with research clinics to design the updated system.
New features will include a seamless integration of AppLink, Siri Eyes-Free for iPhones, Wi-Fi updates, and a subscription-free 911 Assist that lets drivers make emergency calls after a significant accident.
Here at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford, we can’t wait to see the new Ford SYNC 3 system in action when it arrives next year.
