SYNC2 to SYNC3 upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi gang. Just found this video tutorial on upgrading a 2013-2016 MKZ from SYNC2 to SYNC3.

Not sure if it has been posted previously. Hopefully it will help MKZ forum members looking to make the upgrade.

Good luck. :)

that looked easy....I know me...I'd break every tab and have endless rattles for the eternity of my ownership no matter how cautious I am.

approx cost of the kit?

$1499...YOWSA!...Think I'll wait a few years and buy a used 2017 TT AWD for that price!

Hi jm98. Yes, the new system would use the existing antenna in your car. The antenna locations may be in different places on various model years, but locations are not a factor.

Keep us updated and good luck.

Isn't the '16 MKZ able to upgrade via software updates. I thought Ford pushed out Sync 3 to all their '16 vehicles Lincoln included.

No.  The MKZ didn't get Sync3 until the 2017MY.  The SUVs had it earlier.

BTW, there's no software to update a Sync2 to Sync3.
