While the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show was underway, Ford announced that all of its 2017 model year North American vehicles equipped with the SYNC 3 connectivity system including the 2017 Mustang, will be getting Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G LTE and several new AppLink connectivity apps.
While 2017 Mustang owners will get the new features right off the line, Ford has provided reassurance that owners of 2016 vehicles equipped with SYNC 3 will also be able to enjoy these new features via a software upgrade to be released later this year.
Not only can owners of Apple and Android smartphones take advantage of familiar applications and interface integrated directly into their Mustang’s built-in display and controls, but the SYNC Connect technology powered by 4G LTe also allows owners the ability to remotely access features of their car. Owners can program a remote start, unlock doors, check fuel level or locate a parked vehicle via their smartphones.
