Climate control at your fingertips

Controlling your climate settings (if your vehicle is equipped) is convenient and easy with SYNC® 3. For cabin comfort, you can use SYNC 3 to adjust a variety of climate control features, including temperature, defrost controls, and fan speed.

You can also use voice commands to set the vehicle’s temperature.

You can access the following features by pressing the climate icon on the SYNC touchscreen. You can also access many of these features using the climate control buttons on your dashboard’s center console. Depending on how your vehicle is equipped, your touchscreen may appear slightly different from the image shown here.
