It was an open secret—we spied a large touch screen on prototypes for the forthcoming Fiesta ST model—but Ford has now confirmed that its smallest car will offer the company’s most ambitious piece of infotainment tech for the 2014 model year.
The Fiesta’s version of MyFord Touch (MFT) will use a 6.5-inch touch screen, which the company decided was the right size for its diminutive center stack. (It’s the same unit that will be used in the new Transit Connect.) Other applications of MFT throughout Ford’s lineup, from the Focus on up, have an eight-inch screen.
The small car’s version of MFT and Sync also will introduce several refinements that will be subsequently rolled out to existing owners and applied to future builds. They include simplified voice commands, easier Bluetooth pairing, revised navigation input screens, and what Ford says is improved voice-recognition software.
