Ford has just announced that they will be updating SYNC, which is their Microsoft-powered in-car entertainment and connectivity platform that comes alongside with the MyFord Touch interface, and these will debut in the 2014 Ford Fiesta. The updated SYNC in the 2014 Ford Fiesta is said to boast of a spanking new 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen display, but apart from that aesthetics, the system will also feature a smarter voice recognition system alongside improved accuracy, in addition to a more natural manner of engaging with it courtesy of a flattened audio command structure.

With the new and improved SYNC, drivers are able to just say “play ” in order to request a specific artist, song, album or genre. Not only that, drivers are also able to mention “play FM 101.9″ instead of having to explicitly inform the system as to whether you would want to tune in to regular radio or satellite radio. Imagine just blurting out “play CNN”, and the system is smart enough to figure out that you would want to tune in to a satellite radio station. Ford claims it is more accurate than ever before, and we will just have to take their word for it.
