If you listen to a radio or low bit rate songs then yea, you'll find that the center speaker is useless because its just throwing out the same channel of sound.
If you have 5.1 music or adjust your system to compensate, yea it will work better.
I'm surprised Ford is so heavily invested in Sony...Bose makes fantastic in car systems that are calibrated for each car and have a plethora of adjustment options which really make the system pop.
Hell, our Impala was only a 8 speaker setup, no subwoofer, and that thing positively kicked when you wanted it to and for things like voice it was crystal clear.
I just never really liked Sony, despite the fact that in our small cars the system is good, its still Sony.
