Use your voice to control music and radio settings

Use voice commands while in your SYNC-equipped vehicle to tune the radio or browse your music collection by genre, album, artist, playlist, or song title. Connect your media player or smartphone to SYNC and play your favorite music through the audio system. SYNC also delivers an integrated 10GB hard drive, which stores up to 2,400 songs.

AM/FM radio and CD player

Use voice commands to tune the radio, play selected CD tracks, and more. You can also use the controls located on the steering wheel or center console to adjust the volume, select music, 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.)48

To use any of the phone features for SYNC—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.

Plug in to play music

Plug your USB media players or flash drives into the media hub to listen to music through your vehicle’s audio system and charge your devices.
