Ford Sync 3 comes to Europe

The communications and entertainment system from Ford, the Sync 3, is being launched in Europe and will initially feature in the Mondeo, S-MAX, Galaxy and at a later date the Ford Kuga.

The roll out of Sync 3 across Ford cars in Europe could see car sales in Poole and across the rest of the UK increase as people look to get their hands on the infotainment system.

The Sync 3 system allows drivers to control their connected smartphones, navigation, audio and climate with voice commands.

If that’s not enough, Ford’s Sync 3 now boasts an eight-inch touch screen and users can push a button saying ‘I need petrol’, ‘I need to park’ or ‘I need a coffee’ and it will locate nearby petrol stations, car parks and cafes. Drivers can also locate hotels, train stations and airports, and cars boasting the system will then navigate drivers to the destination.

Sync 3 is faster and easier to use

Speaking to The Ford Motor Company Media Center, Christof Kellerwessel, chief engineer, Electronic and Electrical Systems Engineering for Ford of Europe, said, “Whether you are craving your morning cappuccino on your daily commute or covering the cost of a journey by transporting a package, SYNC 3 brings to life innovative new ways of staying connected on the move.

“Designed to complement modern smartphones, with an intuitive touch screen, SYNC 3 understands more conversational speech, is faster, and offers an easier-to-read graphical interface.” 

The Ford Sync system is already used by over 15 million drivers across the globe and now drivers in Europe will be able to benefit from the new system that was recently equipped with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Drivers across Europe will profit from a range of in-car apps as a result of Sync 3 being rolled out across the continent, such as AccuWeather and MyBoxMan.

The Mondeo, S-MAX, Galaxy and Kuga models that have Sync 3 implemented into them will be available in Ford car dealers in Wiltshire and the rest of Britain and Europe later this year.
