2018 Ford Escape Sync 3 


If you've seen that many of our new Ford models come equipped with Ford SYNC 3, you aren't alone – you also aren't alone in asking "what is Ford SYNC 3?" Auffenberg Ford Belleville is here to break down the advantages of Ford SYNC 3 and let you know about your upgrade options.

Ford SYNC 3 Features

In addition to the convenience of a capacitive touchscreen with simple music search, enhanced climate control, and enhanced voice recognition software, Mascoutah drivers will find the following on SYNC 3:

  • Ford+Alexa – You can take Alexa on the road with you, connecting you to Amazon and bringing navigation, traffic information, and over 30,000 skills to your vehicle.

  • SYNC Connect powered by FordPass – Track your vehicle and access features remotely, like start, lock, unlock, and check vehicle status from the compatible app.

  • SYNC Connect Wi-Fi Hotspot – Ford owners and passengers can pair up to 10 devices to the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot powered by AT&T, with FordPass to track your data usage.

  • Easy Destination Entry – When paired with SiriusXM Traffic, SYNC 3 lets you easily enter destinations for navigation, finding familiar spots and responding to voice controls as needed so you can get where you want to go.

  • SYNC AppLink – Keep your hands on the wheel, your eyes on the road, and yourself in control with just a few words. AppLink lets you voice control compatible mobile apps and cue up your favorite songs.

  • SYNC 3 plus Android Auto Compatibility – If you have an Android phone, you're going to love bringing your assistant along for the ride in a new Ford. The Google Assistant comes along from Mascoutah to Belleville, as does Google Now, Google Music, and Google Maps integration.

  • Automatic Updates over Wi-Fi – Keep your infotainment system current anywhere there's a Wi-Fi signal, no need to search for a download or use a thumb drive like competing systems.

Can I Upgrade to Ford SYNC 3?

Because of all the Ford SYNC 3 system can do, it requires both unique hardware and software. Your classic Ford SYNC system still works, but it's not possible to upgrade to SYNC 3 due to the hardware requirements – unless you start shopping for a new Ford.
