The design and utility of it is out of this world: seating for up to eight occupants, plus loads of cargo volume in regular and extended-length MAX models.

You can also schedule specific times to remotely start your vehicle. Available SYNC27 can bring the power of Apple CarPlay™compatibility to your Ford. You can use Siri® to interact with your iPhone.® Make calls, return missed calls and listen to voicemail, as well as send, read and reply to text messages, and even access your favorite songs and playlists.
