Can I Upgrade My Ford SYNC® to SYNC® 3?

Ford SYNC Display
The latest Ford SYNC® 3 system brings brand new features to your Columbia commute, including Alexa connectivity and navigation options. But if your current vehicle is equipped with the classic Ford SYNC® infotainment system, you may be wondering “Can I upgrade my Ford SYNC® to SYNC® 3?” The short answer is no. SYNC® 3-equipped vehicles come with unique hardware specifications, which are different from the hardware specs found on a SYNC®-equipped model. However, the original SYNC® system is still a state-of-the-art companion for the Fulton roads – and Joe Machens Capital City Ford is here to tell you why! Learn how to Sync My Ride and more, and continue your Ford research with us in Jefferson City.
