Ford On Its Way to Install CarPlay and Android Auto in Entire 2017 Models

Ford officially announced that all of its 2017 models: be it a luxury car, light truck, SUV and EV is smartphone-ready.

It means that all the upcoming models of Ford are fully loaded with Sync3 entertainment system and are compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Those who have already bought any of Ford’s 2017 models must be enjoying such an incredible addition. It allows people to access music, maps and messages on their vehicle’s screen. Isn’t that amazing?

And this is what Chuck Gray, Ford’s global director of electrical and electronic systems engineering has to say about the technological implementation.

“We developed one platform –Sync3 – and have been able to quickly offer the technology across our lineup. Customers considering a new vehicle can now choose any 2017 model year Ford car, SUV, light truck or electrified vehicle with Sync3 and be able to access their favorite apps.”

Unlike other automobile companies that offer advance features to limited editions only, Ford is taking a step further and introducing Sync3 to all its 2017 models which is a commendable step towards customer satisfaction.

“Ford is not taking the traditional approach of introducing Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto on a few piecemeal models or as an expensive option on luxury vehicles only,” said Jeffery Hannah from automotive technology research firm SBD.
