Use voice or touch to control your music and radio settings
Use voice commands while driving to safely tune the radio or browse your music collection by genre, album, artist, playlist, or song title. To adjust audio settings, you can also use the 8-inch touchscreen in the center console or the controls on the steering wheel.
AM/FM radio and CD player
Use voice commands to browse preset radio stations, play selected CD tracks, and more. Use controls on the touchscreen or steering wheel to select music and adjust the sound. If you prefer, use the controls located in the center console to listen to the radio or play CDs.
Stream music with your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone
Stream your music catalog wirelessly from your Bluetooth®-enabled smartphone and listen using Bluetooth Stereo. Once your device is connected by Bluetooth to your vehicle’s audio system, launch the device’s media player to begin playback. (Only do so when your vehicle is not in motion.)
To use any of the phone features for SYNC® with MyFord Touch—such as streaming music, making a call, receiving a text message, or using SYNC Services —you must first connect, or "pair" your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone. Pairing is what allows Bluetooth devices to communicate securely with each other. Learn more about pairing your phone.129
Plug in to play music
Plug your favorite gadgets into the media hub. You can then listen to music by plugging in your USB flash drives, USB media players, and SD cards. You can also plug-in an older media player that has only a headphone jack for output.
Hear digital sound quality
Enjoy digital sound quality when the AM/FM radio in your vehicle is tuned to an HD Radio station (if equipped). This feature lets you tag songs to buy later in iTunes® and choose from additional digital channels on FM (if featured).
