Ford is Ready to Rock the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show

Ford is in its final preparations for its fourth year at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in a big way. Brian McClary, Ford Social and Emerging Media Specialist, and Alan Hall, Ford Technology Communications Manager, give us a quick preview of some of the exciting technology to expect from Ford at the 2012 CES.

First, the show will mark the North American debut of the Ford Evos Concept Vehicle. This vehicle was first shown at the 64th Frankfurt International Motor Show, held September 15-25, 2011, and it provides a big hint regarding the DNA of the next generation of Ford cars and crossovers. You can read the full story on the Evos Concept on Ford Social by clicking here.

In addition, the new 2013 Ford Fusion will also be shown at the 2012 International CES. The Fusion is the official car of the show, and it will have a prominent place in the Ford display.

Ford will also announce new additions to its suite of in-car technologies. In fact, Ford will more than double the number of apps that you can control through SYNC® AppLink, which allow you to voice control the apps on your smartphone. Read “SYNC AppLink Gives You Hands-free Voice Control of Your Smartphone Apps,” to learn more about AppLink.

Stay tuned for more stories and chances to join live chats with Ford experts here on Ford Social during the CES.

Mark Hancharuk Seeing how we are discussing apps here, I have a story to tell... I have a 2008 Lincoln MKZ with the first generation SYNC system. I also have an HTC HD7 Windows phone. I have always loved the easy interface between my phone and car, but when Windows Phone released the new 'Mango' update, I got another surprise, just by accident... When I receive a text message now, instead of having to choose from a list of pre-programmed responses, I can now respond using my own words, seamlessly! And again, i never have to remove my phone from my belt or console! (and it never required an update to SYNC, either!) WAY TO GO, FORD! I impress many people who travel with me with this technoiogy; I can only imagine what's coming next!

Peter Klippel The Fusion diesel wagons rule the Autobahn here in Germany. @Ford: You have two great things going for you, now put them together and give the consumer the ultimate package. Take your 2.2L TDCi Duratorq engine from Europe and configure it with your plug-in hybrid system. Boom, instant competition killer.
