What is my Ford's Amazon Alexa* Built-In?

Ford now offers Amazon Alexa Built-In for a more hands-free experience. Alexa capabilities, delivered through SYNC® 4 and SYNC® 4A, provide the convenience of voice-initiated interactions, making it easier to play music, get directions, check traffic, manage home smart devices, find parking, pay for gas, and more. You can also connect smart home devices to your Amazon account and control them from your vehicle (e.g., smart lights and garage doors).

Amazon Alexa Built-In is complimentary for three years. 


  • With Amazon Alexa Built-In, you can interact with your vehicle through voice commands (e.g., "Alexa, find the closest gas station"). 
  • Combined with the FordPass™ App, you can:
    • Start/stop your engine.
    • Lock/unlock your doors.
    • Check your vehicle range.
    • Check your tire pressure.


Amazon Alexa Built-In will be available in vehicles equipped with SYNC 4/SYNC 4A with Enhanced Voice Recognition. The 2022 F-150 is the first vehicle to be built with this feature. Any 2021 vehicle equipped with SYNC 4/SYNC 4A with Enhanced Voice Recognition will receive Amazon Alexa Built-in with a future Ford Power-Up software update.
