We love our cars. And we love our phones. It seems we've come to the point that if those two can't work together, we're going to have a problem.

Ford Motor Company's latest version of Sync - the technology performing that marriage in Ford cars - is debuting, and it's the most user-friendly so far. "Sync 3" capitalizes on our vast prowess at navigating app icons on our phones by creating an icon-based system on its touch screen. Touch, swipe; touch, swipe. That's it. Simple.

One of the first vehicles at Lakeview Ford Lincoln in downtown Battle Creek to come with Sync 3 is the 2017 Ford Escape crossover. The newest Escape features freshened styling as well, emulating its big brother, the Edge.
