It’s not every day that an auto manufacturer can stun a publication steeped in the technology sector, but that’s what Ford manages with their 2016 Escape.
Plaudits rain down in PCMag’s review of the Big Blue Oval’s vehicle thanks to the newly-upgraded, sophisticated infotainment system. Gone is the Microsoft-backed MyFord Touch option from 2015 and prior—instead, the Blackberry-designed Sync 3 package takes center stage.
The performance of the fresh setup wins acclaim due in large part to a magnificently simplified user interface. Larger icons make at-a-glance operation a breeze, and Sync 3’s intelligence provides savvy autofill assistance whenever you’re searching for songs or inputting an address.
The compact SUV’s multimedia console simply reacts better across the board, too. This is due to the embrace of capacitive touch screen functionality, which replaces the outgoing resistive technology. Response to user input is now lightning-fast, not unlike the souped-up smartphone you carry around in your pocket. You won’t find yourself fiddling with cumbersome menus and a finicky display in the parking lot before embarking. It’s all a smooth experience.
