Does the 2013 Ford Escape have Bluetooth?

Does the 2013 Ford Escape have Bluetooth? I always assumed mine had it, but now that I want to connect my phone to it, I can’t figure out how to do it.

The 2013 Ford Escape can have Bluetooth, depending on its trim level. For the 2013 model year, Bluetooth was available on all but the base-level S trim.
Conveniently, pairing it with a Bluetooth-compatible device can take less than a couple of minutes! If yours is equipped, here’s how you can pair a device with your 2013 Escape via Bluetooth:
  • Turn Bluetooth on in your device settings
  • At the home menu on your Ford Escape’s infotainment screen, select “add phone”
  • On your phone or Bluetooth device, find the available “SYNC” connection option and select it
  • Verify the PIN that appears on your phone matches the one on your vehicle’s infotainment screen. If the two PINs match, press “yes” on the radio screen and “pair” on your device.
That’s essentially all there is to it! After this step, your phone will be paired with your 2013 Ford Escape. You’ll also be asked whether you want to upload your device’s contacts to the vehicle, which you can accept or decline.
While some vehicles from around this time only had Bluetooth capabilities for making hands-free calls, the 2013 Ford Escape’s SYNC system also lets you stream music and other audio wirelessly without needing an additional aftermarket Bluetooth adapter.
One final tip: pairing your 2013 Ford Escape with the right car insurance policy can be just as quick and easy as pairing it with a Bluetooth device, so don’t forget to ensure it’s adequately protected!
