The Sync AppLink option is already available on the Ford Fiesta, and Reuters reports that it will soon be available on the Fusion, F-150 and Expedition. The Sync-to-smartphone connection is beneficial to driving safety, keeping the driver’s eyes on the road by allowing the driver to access smartphone apps via the car’s command system.
