    No mention of adaptive cruise control? Any idea whether we will get it? Also, Sync 3 will be rolled out later this year in the 2016 models. I for one would be waiting for that as it’s a huge improvement on Sync 2 in terms of functionality and responsiveness.

      Hi Stephen, there’s been nothing official yet about adaptive cruise control and when we asked Ford Australia about Sync3 the response we got was: “Not yet”. I’d say the first consignment of cars for Australia will only run Sync2 and we might have to wait a bit. But, as you say, it’s a huge improvement on Sync2 and it kind of makes Ford locally seem a little out of step for making such a big deal of technology that’s now a generation old. Ah well.
