What is Ford SYNC?

Are you intrigued about Ford SYNC in Durham, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, or Cary? We surely are!

Ford SYNC is Ford’s in-vehicle communications and entertainment system. It’s a system that was built to enable driving in leisure, with the ability to use most features seamlessly without taking your eyes off the road. This technology allows drivers to make hands-free calls and control their music selection and other functions with simple voice commands. Ford developed this system along with several other third-party vendors. Ford Sync is typically an added option or comes standard in all the new Ford cars that are sold in North America.
