Can I Upgrade My Ford SYNC® to SYNC® 3?

Ford Sync Screen Close Up

Ever found yourself wondering, “Can I upgrade my Ford SYNC® to SYNC® 3?” Most recent Ford models come with the Ford SYNC® infotainment system, but only the newest Ford models come with the updated Ford SYNC® 3, the latest iteration of the system. Unfortunately, vehicles equipped with the original Ford SYNC® cannot upgrade to SYNC® 3, mainly because those with SYNC® 3 have very specific hardware built in to accommodate the system.

Even so, the first-generation Ford SYNC® offers Normal-area drivers plenty of jealousy-inducing features. Learn how to”Sync my ride” and revolutionize the way you drive around Decatur with Sam Leman Ford!

Ford SYNC® Noteworthy Features

  • Handsfree Commands: Place and answer phone calls and text messages, or even request specific playlists or podcasts, without ever taking your hands off the wheel. That’s all thanks to voice command, which will keep your eyes on the road while ensuring you remain connected and entertained.
  • Ford AppLink®: Your favorite mobile apps are accessible via Ford AppLink®, which you can navigate with voice commands or your steering-wheel-mounted controls.
  • SYNC® Entertainment: Need some guidance on what music to listen to? Using your voice commands, request a specific genre, and SYNC® will provide you with a unique playlist. By connecting your Apple or Android device via Bluetooth®, you can also listen to your favorite audiobooks and podcasts.
  • SYNC® Media Hub: Charging your devices while on the go has never been more convenient than it is with SYNC®. A USB port serves as a charging portal, or you can use it to play files from a separate device or install SYNC® software updates.

Ford SYNC® Safety

There’s more to the Ford SYNC® system than entertainment. In fact, the system has your safety in mind at all times during your Champaign drives. For example, 911 Assist allows you to get in touch with emergency personnel in the event of an accident. And even if you can’t reach the controls yourself, the SYNC® system can place the call to 911, sending accident details and locations, as well.
