Ford will likely integrate both systems into upcoming models, it will also keep their own Sync AppLink feature since AppLink interfaces with phones that don't support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, as well as it doesn't require a touchscreen.

Sync 3 itself departs from the Microsoft architecture of previous Ford infotainment systems for Blackberry QNX. Ford claims it ironed out the clunkiness that has plagued these systems since their debut.

The new system rolls out on Ford models this year, and will be standard or optional on every U.S.-market vehicle by 2016.

As for CarPlay and Android Auto, Ford won’t confirm anything, but a recent report from The New York Times claims they could launch before the end of this year.
