Ford’s all-new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E will feature the first application of the next-generation Sync communications and entertainment system. Ford says it’s a sleek and modern interface that uses machine learning to quickly learn drivers’ preferences. It’s set to improve over time, too, thanks to over-the-air updates.
The SUV EV’s 15.5in screen and “simple” interface does without complicated menus, making it easier to access features with touch, swipe and pinch controls that every smartphone owner will be comfortable using, according to Ford.
“Next-generation Sync actively starts adapting to you as soon as you start using it, quickly learning your preferences and making personalized suggestions,” said Darren Palmer, Ford’s global director for battery electric vehicles.
“It can suggest going to the gym if it learns Mondays are workout days, or calling home if you do that every day after work. The result is a cloud-connected assistant and interface that’s intuitive, beautiful and ready for the future thanks to fast over-the-air updates.”
As next-generation Sync evolves to serve customers better over time, Ford has outfitted the Mach-E with the ability to continuously improve through the delivery of secure over-the-air updates that are capable of enhancing vehicle performance, offering maintenance updates and even adding entirely new features.
