Does a 2010 Ford F-150 have Bluetooth?

I’m buying a used F-150 and I’m wondering if I need to order an adapter to set up a Bluetooth device.

Well, the short answer is maybe.
Not all 2010 Ford F-150s have Bluetooth capability. You’ll only be able to connect your Bluetooth device to your truck’s audio system if it’s equipped with Ford SYNC.
The basic SYNC system includes:
  • Hands-Free Calling
  • Wireless Contact Transfer
  • Advanced Calling Features (Caller ID, Call Waiting, Conference Calling, and Caller Log)
  • Audio Streaming
  • Audible Text Messages
  • 911 Assist (2008 and Newer Models)
  • SYNC AppLink
In some vehicles, you could opt to get SYNC with Voice-Activated Navigation as a premium upgrade. It obviously added navigation, but also included some less obvious features, such as a larger color screen, an HD radio, and more.
If your Ford doesn’t have SYNC, you are correct in that you can purchase an adapter to connect your Bluetooth device to your vehicle’s audio system.
