Technology is constantly changing in new vehicles to keep up with the evolving demands of drivers. From intuitive infotainment to active safety, modern drivers have some substantial expectations to live up to.

Ford does an excellent job of staying abreast of new automotive technology developments, fitting them to new Ford models along the way. A great example of this is the 2019 EcoSport. The versatile subcompact crossover offers an impressive list of available technologies.

SYNC 3: This touchscreen infotainment system makes navigating applications easier than ever. It's a full-color display with pinch-and-zoom navigation capability for extra convenience. You'll find the screen situated on top of the center stack. Ford added traditional volume and tuning knobs on either side for adder ergonomics. SYNC 3 can also work on a vocal command basis.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto: These two systems allow you to connect your smartphone via the SYNC 3 display. Once you're connected, you can interact with your mobile apps in a familiar and easy way. More and more, Android Auto and Apple Carplay are becoming standard expectations for new vehicles.

FordPass Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi: Having a built-in Wi-Fi network in your car can be extremely convenient for connectivity on the road. Add in remote access to a variety of vehicle systems, and you have an entirely new way of interacting with your vehicle.

BLIS: This active safety system keeps track of other vehicles in your blind spot via radar. If a vehicle is detected, the corresponding side mirror will show a warning.

You can test out these various technologies in the new EcoSport today. Just head on over to Suburban Ford of Waterford for a test drive.
