Ford Models Will Feature Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in 2017 Model Year Vehicles
By the time the Ford Bronco comes out all Ford vehicles will come equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as a part of Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system. The first Ford vehicle to see the two interfaces will be the Escape, which is to be released this spring.
Owners of 2016 model year vehicles will be able to get Android Auto through an update that will take place overnight as long as the owners have their car connected to home Wi-Fi. CarPlay will require those owners to visit a dealer for a hardware upgrade.
Expect even more substantial announcements about Ford technology during CES this week.
