Does the 2008 Ford Edge have Bluetooth?

I’m a new driver about to buy my first car: a 2008 Ford Edge! As an older car, I know it won’t have much in the way of technology, but I want to at least be able to use my phone if needed. Does the 2008 Ford Edge have Bluetooth?

Congratulations on your first car—that’s so exciting! Yes, the 2008
Ford Edge
does have Bluetooth. In fact, 2008 was the year Ford introduced the Ford Sync infotainment system, which gave drivers the ability to safely use their phones while driving. It’s not as sophisticated as modern smartphone compatibility, of course, but it gets the job done!
Here’s how to pair your phone with your 2008 Ford Edge:
  • Make sure you have Bluetooth enabled on your smartphone.
  • Press the PHONE button on your center dashboard.
  • Use the arrow keys to navigate to ADD PHONE.
  • Press OK and wait for a PIN to display on the screen in your car.
  • Open the Bluetooth menu on your phone and go to SETTINGS.
  • Select SYNC, type in your PIN, and press OK.
Your phone should now connect to your car’s audio system, allowing you to make and receive hands-free calls while driving. Ford Sync also allows you to stream music from your phone through your car speakers, but unfortunately, you can’t do it wirelessly. Instead, you’ll need to purchase an auxiliary cable and connect it from your phone to the aux port on your dashboard.
