Siri is voice controlled, but you still have to push a button to make her listen. Newer cars will offer compatibility with Siri while Ford does not offer this integration. If you've got MFT, you're stuck with the mediocre SYNC lady who cannot understand simple english.

Edit:
Besides, it shouldn't be left up to the automakers to make infotainment software. Some of them can barely make cars so obviously their software developing skills are seriously lacking. There is no built-in infotainment software today that works well. They all have drawbacks of some kind. If the infotainment hardware was built to a specification, then the developers who actually know how to make software can take over and make the experience a much better one.
