Ford Sync Audio Integration System Gets Priced at $395

Set to launch this fall, the Ford Sync audio integration system is the result of a collaboration between the blue oval and Microsoft. It has been priced as a $395 option on the upcoming Ford Focus, Ford Edge, and Lincoln MKX.

The Sync system by Microsoft is designed to integrate your cell phone or MP3 player (they’d prefer you use a Zune or Windows Mobile-based device, of course) with the car’s stereo. Through this system, you’ll be able to adjust tracks and playlists using steering wheel-mounted controls, as well as voice commands. The same can be said about handsfree calls on your cell phone.

What’s more, Sync boasts a feature that will read out your text messages, ensuring that you never have to take your eyes off the road. The plan is to offer Sync in nine additional models for 2008.
