SYNC 3 Entertainment overview


Drive to your personal soundtrack with SYNC 3

No matter how eclectic your musical tastes—from Hip Hop to Country to smooth Jazz—or how you store your music, SYNC® 3 lets you enjoy it all safely while you’re behind the wheel, without rummaging for your media player. Use SYNC 3 to control your favorite radio stations, streaming apps and playlists, either through voice commands or your touchscreen.

SYNC 3 provides fast and simple access to all audio sources—some built into the vehicle (like the radio) and others brought into the vehicle such as your personal media devices and apps running on your compatible smartphone.27,63

Simple, uncluttered touchscreen design

Although SYNC 3 is optimized for hands-free use, the touchscreen delivers an experience similar to a smartphone or tablet, with easy-to-read buttons and song information.  SYNC® AppLink™ enables you to control many popular audio apps like Pandora® and iHeartRadio® through a USB or Bluetooth®-enabled device.48,53,63
