Ford has recently stated that the 2017 Ford Escape will be the first vehicle to feature its new SYNC Connect technology.
With SYNC Connect, an owner will be able to access his or her vehicle via a smartphone app, which will allow them to do everything from remotely starting their automobiles, to checking the vehicle’s tire pressure and fuel levels, all from their smartphones.
A built in modem is included with the new Escape, and that’s what the new SYNC Connect technology will be linking to in order to execute all of its remote functions. In addition, a two-step authorization process will be required for users to access the system so that private information can be protected.
“New SYNC Connect provides convenience to Ford owners through an easy-to-use app,” said Don Butler, executive director, Ford Connected Vehicle and Services. “The technology helps you seamlessly integrate your vehicle into your lifestyle. Get locked out? Cold outside? Forget where you parked? No problem. Just use your smartphone.”
Ford will be providing five complimentary years of SYNC Connect service, but pricing for the technology after those initial five years has yet to be announced. Come learn more at Cambridge Classic Ford of Cambridge, OH!
