DEARBORN, Mich., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
  • SYNC ® and MyFord Touch ® sold on nearly 80 percent of 2013 Ford vehicles, double the sales mix of infotainment systems sold with Toyota and Honda vehicles, and up from 68 percent in 2012; MyFord Touch mix of 55 percent increased from 12 percent in 2012
  • Customers with vehicles equipped with MyFord Touch have a higher rate of satisfaction with overall vehicle quality for most models compared to those that do not have the advanced infotainment system

  • Ford improves MyFord Touch quality by more than 50 percent since launch, plans another upgrade in summer 2013

Ford SYNC ® voice-controlled connectivity and MyFord Touch ® touch screen technologies are attracting more customers and selling at a much higher rate than competitors, as MyFord Touch helps drive higher customer satisfaction with vehicle quality.
