Ford unveils Sync Connect at LA Auto Show, 2015

The Ford Escape, which debuted at the 2015 LA Auto Show, will be the first Ford car to feature a new LTE-based service – Sync Connect – that will let drivers control car functions, including unlocking and locking doors and remotely starting the engine via a smartphone app.

The Sync Connect technology, which connects to a built-in modem inside the vehicle, will make its global debut in the new 2017 Ford Escape this spring with more vehicles to follow. The news was announced by the company at the Connected Car Expo and LA Auto Show last month.

Ford execs are reported that Sync Connect will play a key role in Ford Smart Mobility; the company’s plan to deliver the next level in connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, customer experience and big data.

Meanwhile, Ford is committed to keeping Sync — the company’s in-car communications and entertainment system that lets you use your voice to make calls, listen to music, control car functions, and select apps through its AppLink technology — in future vehicles. Sync Connect will be an extension of Ford’s current system.

Ford also announced in June 2015 that a new version of Sync 3 will debut in Fiesta and Escape models. The Sync in-car system is now in 12 million vehicles around the world.
