More bang for your Ford

Go! Camp & Drive - - Wheels -

Both the Ford Ranger and Ever­est ranges have seen in­creases to their spec­i­fi­ca­tion lev­els. Ford’s lat­est-gen­er­a­tion SYNC®3 in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem makes its de­but in the Ranger XLT and Wild­trak bakkie mod­els, as well as in the Ever­est XLT and Lim­ited. Off-road ca­pa­bil­ity has also been im­proved with the fac­tory-fit­ted rear dif­fer­en­tial lock now in­cluded as stan­dard fit­ment on the Ever­est 4x2 mod­els, as well as on all Ranger XL, XLS, XLT and Wild­trak de­riv­a­tives. The Ranger XLS mod­els now also have a rear-view cam­era and park dis­tance con­trol sen­sors as stan­dard, while ex­tra se­cu­rity is pro­vided be­cause all mod­els now have a spare wheel lock as stan­dard fac­tory equip­ment. Ford’s SYNC®3 in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem with sat­nav has an eight­inch colour touch screen that of­fers clearer icons and con­ve­nient mul­ti­touch ges­tures (such as swipe, slide, scroll and pinch-to-zoom), as well as voice recog­ni­tion that uses sim­ple, real-world voice com­mands. All SYNC®3 with Nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems sold in South Africa have more than 20 coun­try maps in­clud­ing: An­gola, Benin, Botswana, Burk­ina Faso, Bu­rundi, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Le­sotho, Malawi, Mau­ri­ta­nia, Mau­ri­tius, Mozam­bique, Namibia, Nige­ria, Rwanda, Sene­gal, South Africa, Swazi­land, Tan­za­nia, Togo, Uganda, Zam­bia, and Zim­babwe. More than 3.6-mil­lion kilo­me­tres of road and 869 000 POIs are listed. An­other fan­tas­tic in­no­va­tion is the in­clu­sion of Track­s4Africa, al­low­ing Ford Ranger and Ever­est own­ers to take ad­van­tage of the unique map­ping cre­ated from the col­lec­tive travel ex­pe­ri­ence of the Tracks-4Africa trav­el­ling com­mu­nity. All mod­els equipped with SYNC®3 with Nav­i­ga­tion in South Africa re­ceive free an­nual map up­dates for a pe­riod of five years.
