2017 Ford SYNC technology 

Ford may be known for its hard-working trucks, but in fact there's much more hiding behind that. For instance, the Ford SYNC infotainment system has been one of the best on the market since its conception. The latest version is smarter than ever, but older versions are not to be ignored. As a whole, the SYNC trio lets you make calls, send texts, and control music using voice commands. The differences are in the details.

SYNC and SYNC with MyFord

This original version lets you select apps with the SYNC AppleLink and also gives you the option to choose your music or turn on Bluetooth with a quick phrase. SYNC will even make a customized playlist for you if you can't choose between tunes.

SYNC with MyFord Touch

The next generation of SYNC features enhanced usability with a display divided into quadrants that are easy to navigate on the road. With this version, you can use voice commands to choose a Sirius XM radio channel or even adjust the climate.


The latest generation of SYNC is, of course, the greatest. Refined technology means you can use natural voice commands which make it easier to just be you while still making calls or sending texts through the car speakers. SYNC 3 is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto so you can get the best of your smartphone, on and off the road.


The hands-free liftgate on this 2016 Escape is one of Ford's most popular convenience technologies.

Technology in Today's Fords

Ford models are filled with the latest technology, as the brand has been a pioneer in the auto industry for a century. Yet, you don't need to but the top-tier trims or luxury models to experience some of the most cutting-edge Ford has to offer. Here are six of the most popular and innovative features many Ford models have.

  • Hands-free liftgate: For those days when your arms are full of grocery bags, kick under the rear bumper and your trunk will open. Now you don't have to go digging for your keys!
  • Optional Lane-Keeping System: If you have trouble staying straying from your lane when you're not paying attention, this feature will alert you as you near the line so you know to correct your direction.
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System: After you've been in an accident, you might not have the ability to call for help, and no one else might be near to assist. This safety system sends out an alert to authorities when your airbags deploy or your car is damaged.
  • Easy Fuel® capless fuel filler: This might not be the most high-tech gadget Ford offers, but it's one of our favorite innovations. You can forget having to deal with that pesky gas cap now that Ford has replaced it with this simple nozzle.
  • Rain-sensing wipers: Ever forget to turn your wipers on as it starts raining, or leave them on after you pass through a storm? Leave the decision up to the intelligent wipers, which can sense when it's raining and how heavily.
  • MyKey®: Program your car key to have a restricted driving mode that encourages teens to drive safely and wear their seat belt.
