As Ford Authority reported back in May, the Ford Mustang Mach-E was due to receive an updated interface in the coming months, and this past September, that the EV crossover was gaining video streaming apps as well. Now, the automaker has somewhat quietly rolled out an over-the-air update for the Ford Mustang Mach-E that adds some visual and functional changes to the Sync 4A interface, as the YouTube channel Mach-E VLOG covers in the video below.

This update isn’t quite the total overhaul that some expected, but it does bring about some interesting and welcome changes to the Mach-E that owners will likely fine useful. For starters, there are some new buttons located at the top of the infotainment screen that include a home button, which pulls up apps and entertainment options, as well as a new game called Bridge Battle that has also been added.
There’s also a button that takes users to the settings screen, while the drive mode interface located in that menu is a bit different, with some pretty cool animations present. Next, a camera button has been added to the top, which only pops up when drivers are traveling at a slow speed, however. Finally, a fourth button has been placed at the top of the screen that provides a shortcut to Android Auto, or in this case, Apple CarPlay – which features larger cards than before, at the expense of other cards like tire pressure.
Perhaps the most interesting detail present here, however, is the volume knob – which can now be used to control the temperature inside the cabin, fan speed, as well as the heated seats. For the most part, this particular owner seems to like the changes that have taken place here, but Ford CEO Jim Farley is also asking other Mach-E owners for feedback on these particular changes via Twitter, too, so there will likely be even more tweaks coming in the near future.
