Does the 2008 Ford Escape have Bluetooth?

I’m thinking about getting a used Ford Escape but I’m not sure if an older model will have any of the tech features I’m used to. Does the 2008 Ford Escape have Bluetooth?

The 2008 Ford Escape does not have Bluetooth but you can add aftermarket options.
While this model doesn’t come equipped with some of the up-to-date tech features we’re accustomed to in newer models, the audio system does include an AM/FM stereo, four speakers, and an auxiliary audio input.
If Bluetooth is a make-or-break factor in whether or not the 2008 Escape is the right vehicle for you, there are aftermarket options, including Bluetooth receivers. Simply connect your phone to the receiver, plug it into the auxiliary input, and stream your music! Another option is an FM transmitter, which broadcasts your mobile device’s sound over an FM radio frequency.
Keep in mind that any Ford made after 2009 will come equipped with Bluetooth, so you may be able to find an affordable used model with the technology features you want.
