It’s a series of complicated dials. You push, pull, and press your way across a screen - trying to activate an infotainment system, seeking access to your favorite programs. The console remains quiet, though, and no content appears. You scowl, running your fingers (once again) along the media tower.
This, Ford knows, is an all-too-common occurrence for Seattle drivers - with their crossover’s yielding poorly designed tech and inferior interfacing. That’s why the Big Blue Oval has fused its 2018 Expedition Platinum with the best in digital content, utilizing the SYNC 3 system to ensure highway convenience.
According to AutoBlog, the 2018 Expedition Platinum boasts a superior infotainment system. The SYNC 3 - anchored by an eight-inch capacitive touchscreen - allows drivers to seamlessly engage with content. Integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software accommodates smartphones, instantly downloading contact lists, music files, and more into the console; while Siri Eyes Free technology yields voice-activated control. The LCD display boasts intuitive pinch-to-zoom functionality, enabling users to quickly locate their preferred apps; while available Amazon Alexa compatibility provides more than 30,000 custom skill-sets to employ (including remote starts and automated dual-zone temperature changes). Wireless hot-spots are integrated directly into the media tower and ensure smooth connectivity for up to 10 devices, countering data interruptions with 4G LTE precision.
The SYNC 3 console allows drivers to effortlessly define, access, and control their content. It pairs SiriusXM navigation with TravelLink streaming to ensure an effective experience.
