Does the 2011 Ford Escape have Bluetooth?

I have a 2011 Ford Escape, and I want to connect my new iPhone to it so I don’t have to use it while driving. Does the 2011 model have Bluetooth connectivity?

Connecting to Bluetooth and using hands-free mode is a great way to avoid distracted driving! The 2011 Ford Escape offers Bluetooth but it depends on the trim level. Bluetooth didn’t come standard in all Ford Escapes, but the 2011 model year received most of Ford’s newest technology features.
Ford SYNC, the automotive marker’s system that pairs with Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, is available on certain 2011 Ford Escape models. Thankfully, connecting to Ford SYNC with your device is as simple as turning Bluetooth on and selecting it from the SYNC list.
The base models of the 2011 Ford Escape are minimal in terms of technology and features, but they still include power features (door locks, windows), cruise control, and an AM/FM/CD player. Moving up trim levels unlocks additional features, including the Bluetooth-drive SYNC system, Sirius satellite radio, USB ports, a DVD drive, navigation, and more.
