Keep your factory display
Crux's SWRFD-60E interface lets you keep your Ford's factory 4" screen, AUX audio input, and steering wheel controls when installing a compatible aftermarket radio. Connect this interface to the wires on your new stereo's wiring harness, and you've covered the power, ground, and factory speaker connections for your new stereo. This harness does not retain SYNC, but you will retain voice command features in SYNC-equipped vehicles.
Notes: The SWRFD-60E interface allows you to keep your steering wheel controls with radios from Alpine, Blaupunkt, Boss, Clarion, Dual, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sony. You'll need to set the time and date display before removing the factory radio; you can't make adjustments once that radio has been removed.

It also retains the vehicle's factory 4" screen, Aux input, and Voice command features.
Vehicle Compatibility: The CRUX SWRFD-60E is compatible with the following 2011-up Ford vehicles with a factory 4" screen. The CRUX radio replacement interface works on vehicles with or without SYNC. However, the SWRFD-60E does not retain the factory SYNC system.

Factory 4" Screen Retention: The CRUX SWRFD-60E radio replacement interface will retain your Ford vehicle's factory 4" LCD screen. You will need to set the Date & Time of the display prior to removal of the factory radio. Once the factory radio is removed, you can no longer make adjustments to Date & Time.
Retains Factory Aux Input: In vehicles without SYNC, the SWRFD-60E can retain the factory Aux input. Your aftermarket head unit must be equipped with a rear-panel Aux input. If your aftermarket receiver doesn't have a stereo RCA rear-panel Aux input, but instead a 3.5mm rear-panel Aux input, you'll need a female stereo to RCA adapter (sold separately).
Retained Voice Commands & Phone Functions: On vehicles equipped with SYNC, the CRUX SWRFD-60E will retain the factory voice command functions that can be activated from the factory steering wheel controls. The SWRFD-60E also retains the Phone Answer/End functions of the steering wheel controls on all compatible vehicles.
Pre-Programmed Steering Wheel Controls: The SWRFD-60E includes a pre-programmed steering wheel control (SWC) module and harness that allows you to retain your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls. The harness consists of a right-angle 3.5mm connector and a blue/yellow wire (only one connection type will be used based on your brand of aftermarket radio). There is also SWC adapter for aftermarket radios with a 3-wire steering wheel control input. The SWRFD-60E will work with any of the listed aftermarket radio brands that feature a steering wheel control input using the appropriate connector and dip-switch settings (see owner's manual for appropriate settings).
- 3.5mm Connector: Alpine, Clarion, Pioneer, Sony, Jensen, Older JVC
- Blue/Yellow Wire: Kenwood, Newer JVC
- 3-Wire Adapter: Other aftermarket radios (like Boss) with SWC Key 1, SWC Key 2, and SWC Ground wires
Navigation Outputs: The CRUX SWRFD-60E radio replacement interface module provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense) and a Reverse Gear output to make installing an aftermarket navigation radio simpler and less time consuming.
