Oakville, Ontario – Ford is offering its SYNC communications and entertainment system at no charge with the purchase or lease of most new 2010 vehicles under its Ford SYNC My Ride Event.

The offer also includes zero per cent APR financing for up to 72 months, or up to $8,000 in price adjustments on select 2010 Ford vehicles, with offers varying by model. Lincoln is also offering special lease and purchase offers on 2010 MKZ, MKS, MKX and MKT vehicles.

SYNC works with Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and digital media players, allowing drivers to stay connected while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road.

Ford said that due to overwhelming success, it is also extending its “Recycle Your Ride” program. Consumers turning in vehicles 16 years old or older for recycling will get up to $3,000 toward the purchase of a new vehicle, building on the Canadian government’s Retire Your Ride program, which offers $300 and other benefits. So far, Ford of Canada has scrapped approximately 2,400 clunkers under the program, more than any other automaker.
