Available initially with Ford Endeavour’s top-of-the line Titanium trim, SYNC 3 features an interactive 8″capacitive touch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, enabling both Android and iOS users to access messages, phone and music. Other features include seamless integration of AppLink for a simple way to control smartphone apps, Siri Eyes-Free capability for Apple iPhone and software updates via Wi-Fi.
SYNC 3 is optimized for hands-free use, and offers an experience similar to a smartphone. Gestures like pinch-to-zoom and swipe are central to SYNC 3, along with improved graphics. Tiled interface with a quick access function tray along the bottom make for a more straightforward user experience. Phone contacts are searchable via a simple swipe of the finger to scroll through the alphabet. With One Box Search, users can look up points of interest or enter addresses in much the same way they use an Internet search engine.
The Endeavour comes with a choice of two diesel engines, the 2.2L TDCi and 3.2L TDCi, mated to a six-speed automatic or manual transmissions. The Titanium variants with SYNC 3 in-car technology are priced at:
2.2L Titanium 4X2 Automatic: INR 27.93 lacs
3.2L Titanium 4X4 Automatic: INR 30.89 lacs
