Ford is expanding its SYNC 3 connectivity platform allowing compatibility of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto throughout its entire 2017 vehicle lineup of cars, SUVs, light trucks and electrified vehicles.

Ford, using its platform-centric approach creating a technology for its lineup versus going vehicle by vehicle – has been able to swiftly roll out SYNC 3 plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

And future, over-the-air updates via Wi-Fi will help ensure it keeps up with the latest technology.

Popular nameplates like the Escape, Fusion, Mustang and Explorer are already available as 2017 model-year vehicles at dealerships and others like the F-150, Focus, Edge and all-new 2017 Super Duty will arrive later this year.

Compatible with iPhone 5 and later models, CarPlay provides a simplified way to use your iPhone interface on a car’s touch screen, giving users access to Siri voice controls, as well as Apple Maps, Apple Music, Phone, Messages, and a variety of third party apps.

Android Auto is available on devices with Android 5.0 and higher and similarly delivers Google Maps and music to a car’s screen while enabling voice controls for phone calls and messaging.
