Introducing The All New SYNC 3

‘I Need a Coffee!’ Drivers Just Say the Word to Find Cafés, Fuel or Parking as Ford SYNC 3 Comes to Europe

Ford launched its new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system in Europe at the Barcelona mobile world congress, allowing drivers to control their connected smartphones, audio, navigation, and climate functions with more conversational voice commands.

SYNC 3 features a redesigned 8‑inch touch screen and faster performance. Simply by pushing a button and saying “I need a coffee,” “I need petrol,” and “I need to park,” drivers can find nearby cafés, petrol stations or car parks, as well as locate train stations, airports, and hotels. The system then guides the driver to the selected destination via the navigation. SYNC 3 launches in Europe in the summer, starting with Mondeo, S-MAX, and Galaxy.
