The company is phasing out traditional paper owner's manuals and embracing digital versions accessible through various platforms. This transition aims to enhance convenience, provide up-to-date information, and contribute to a greener environment.

One of the key advantages of digital owner's manuals is their accessibility. Gone are the days of bulky paper manuals taking up precious space in your car. Instead, you can now conveniently access your vehicle's manual through the Ford support website or your SYNC touchscreen. Whether you're at home, on the road, or anywhere with an internet connection, your digital manual is just a few taps away.

Ford Account holders also have the benefit of instant access to an online version of their owner's manual. By visiting the Ford Account dashboard and clicking on the Owners Manuals tile, you can quickly enter your vehicle's details and retrieve the manual specific to your model.

The decision to transition from paper to digital manuals aligns with Ford's commitment to reducing its environmental impact. Traditional paper production relies on the consumption of trees and other resources, which can contribute to pollution. In contrast, digital owner's manuals require no physical materials and can be accessed anytime, anywhere, with an internet connection. By making this shift, Ford is playing its part in minimizing paper waste and promoting sustainable practices.

It's worth noting that Ford is not alone in this transition. Leading automakers, including General Motors, Toyota, and Honda, have recognized the benefits of digital owner's manuals and announced their plans to phase out traditional paper versions.
