I have a 2015 Ford Utility PIU, I am wondering is there any major differences in the wiring harnesses? I am looking to get an after market radio due to mine not having Sync and I am too cheap to spend roughly 2k to get Sync.
Wondering if this would work as well on it?

Welcome to the Forum Tyler. :wave:
I just did a quick search on the model and found these threads that mention it.
There is also this one; Upgrading 2013 FPIU radio to touchscreen GPS?

Peter, thanks for the help. I have one more question.
I have a regular 2015 Ford Taraus that was totaled out by the insurance. It has the full sync system. Could I just yank the radio and what not out and place it into my Explorer PIU? I assume everything would just be about plug and play for the Sync system

Hi Tyler. I'm not sure if that is possible but it might be since both are the same model year. I don't believe anyone has posted about having done anything similar. Perhaps there might be others that are more familiar with the similarities or differences between the two systems.

Non-sync to sync is not plug and play. Everything is different. The wring harnesses, modules, etc.
