Ford SYNC 4 Will Save Drivers Time And Money

Ford's new SYNC 4 infotainment system will find cheap gas and vacant parking spaces.

3w ago


Ford has unveiled the SYNC 4 infotainment system, a feature that will now save drivers money by finding cheap gas - or electricity - and parking spaces while taking fees into account.

Key Points

1. SYNC 4 will first be equipped in the 2021 Mach-E, Bronco, and F-150.

2. Data from INRIX will allow SYNC 4 to find you open parking spaces and cheap gas in over 20,000 cities in 150 countries.

Main Features

By using INRIX data, SYNC 4 will have the ability to find the closest street or garage parking, and inform the driver about any fees or restrictions. In addition, it will supply you with all the information about the closest gas stations and parking spaces, including the price, rating, location, and phone number. This new infotainment system will come with larger screens, over-the-air updates, and machine learning which will allow it to make useful suggestions based on prior activity.



There Must Be A Catch...Is It Free?

For the most part, however, although it will be standard on all 2021 F-150 trim levels, the parking and gas feature is part of an optional navigation system. While this is annoying, it makes sense and shouldn't be too expensive. If I were to make a guess, I would say $300-$400.

Final Thoughts

Ford's SYNC 4 is long awaited, seeing as SYNC 3 was introduced back in 2014. I think they did a great job with this new system, especially since they will constantly be improving it via over-the-air updates.

    • They need to up sell it if it’s a game changer. Keeping it quiet doesn’t help sell cars.

    Well thought that it would secretly use the owners credentials and investing in stock market to make the owner more income from that without him knowing about the investment in the stock market,

    So this much advancement to just find the parking spaces come on grow tech giants,

    Give the consumer more which we didn't want in the first place,

  • The savings will ultimately be for nought since it will require multiple costly trips to the dealership to fix the issues of a poorly functioning sync 4 system.
