Las Vegas, Nevada – Ford has sold its four millionth vehicle equipped with SYNC connectivity system, just one year after eclipsing the three million mark.
Launching globally this year, SYNC is forecasted to reach nine million new customers around the world in the next three years. It was introduced in late 2007.
“SYNC has been a transformational technology not only for Ford, but for the industry,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice-president for global product development. “SYNC has been integral to keeping pace with the consumer, delivering value through a constant flow of new features that keep them connected to their digital lives in a safer, simpler and smart way while driving.”
Ford research found that customers who bought model-year 2011 Ford vehicles treated SYNC as a “must-have” technology and purchased the system 82 per cent of the time, while more than 80 per cent of SYNC users said they are likely to recommend the system to others.
