Ford became a leader in creating a seamless environment in the car when they introduced Sync a few years ago. The automaker is now taking that concept to an entirely new level with MyFord Touch. The service operates through the vehicle dashboard and is accessible via a touch screen, steering wheel controls, and voice commands. MyFordTouch is simply incredible, and has set the standard for systems of the like.

The other key feature is the integration of Bluetooth technology that allows you to make and receive calls in ways only seen on the most expensive cars in the past. MyFord Touch keeps you connected safely.

Navigation is becoming more and more standard on vehicles today.

Sync Services gives drivers a wealth of information at either the tip of their finger or from voice commands. If you want to take things a step further you can use the optional SD navigation card for some of the best 3-D maps out there!
Driving in comfort is something we all want. In the past we thought of this as a smooth riding car that was relatively free of road noise. Temperature was either hot or cold controlled through various vents grilles inside the car. MyFord Touch seamlessly integrates temperature comfort in ways never seen before. You can control zones, set preferences, and even have the system remember your preferred settings.
