Anything can be done but I promise it will be more work than it's worth.

I'd venture to say you will be the first to try. Wiring and nav antennas will need to be figured out and that's on top of trying to mount it ect. Just buy a aftermarket radio with nav and back up camera and get an install kit and call it a day. The ford stuff is crap on a stick anyway.

I'd love to do exactly what Oxford is saying. I wonder how much it cost, start to finish? I know head unit would vary but I wonder just how much on average.

I did it. I already had the head unit. But just for cost ideas I can tell you it was about 800 bucks a few years ago (was installed in my previous vehicle as well)

I am a bargain shopper when it comes to mods. I always want the "best" stuff in my eyes and I hate spending the dough. So I always shop around. Here is what mine cost me:

Scohshe (prob spelt that wrong) adapter with complete wire harness on eBay for ~300

Steering wheel adapter ~ 45

Back up camera ~ 8 (Ebay from China works like a champ)

So just that stuff is around 360 bucks. Then you have the variables based on how you want your stereo/nav

My kenwood nav with hands free Bluetooth and xm radio was about 800 2 years ago

Kicker 5" component speakers x4 ~260 (also Ebay)

Kicker 700.5 amp (5 channel amp to run all speakers and a sub) 170 on eBay refurbished

12" Boston acoustics sub and box (already had but got on clearance at crutchfield for ~ 125)

All in all I have everything I could want, nav, Bluetooth, back up cam, xm radio, and a system that doesn't suck for ~1700. Sounds like a lot but I already had most of it acquired. If you were to try to upgrade your factory stuff with "better" factory stuff like say a nav from a 14 you would spend 1000 just for everything you need on eBay and that's not a guarantee that you won't be missing some sort of part you have to acquire. And then you are still stuck with a factory system. Trying to go to a 15 set up will no doubt cost more than this with no guarantee it will work.

As far as OPs concern with "sync"...I ripped that ***** out of mine. It's terrible crap ford forces on us. My aftermarket stuff does everything sync did only better. So I'd forget all about worrying about any of that.

I'm with Oxford on this man. I put in an aftermarket system and utilized the ford sync system. It's junk.

I literally spent 16 hours chasing a feed back noise that in the end is caused by the sync system. Once I get rid of sync it stops. The reason I left the factory radio with nav etc is because I liked the larger screen size.

My wife just got a Ford Flex and there's no way I would touch the factory radio after dealing with the Mustangs. With ford you have to replace the radio if you want quality sound.

If you only listen to rap and like it boomy as hell than who cares. Use good subs and a good amp and you'll never notice it.

But if your an audiophile like I am and strive for clean non distorted sound. Than you need to put all new components in. Stereo, door speakers, subs, and amps.

And to touch on price. I have 2300$ into my system. I did use higher quality parts and had a custom ported box designed for my car. So that was an extra cost that Oxford did not have. I did not replace the radio so I save there.

If I did it all again I would swap radios in a heart beat.

I would say you can do a full radio swap as described for 1400$ on up depending on the quality parts used.
I'm not bashing oxfords system at all I'm sure it sounds great. I just wanted to show you some price difference. So you don't have your heart set on the 1700$ mark.
Mine costed me more because I used products I have used in the past with out failure. I abuse car stereo products and I know my system will withstand what I throw at it in a daily basis.

I would also vote for aftermarket. I've had my car a few months now and the SYNC system is really bad.

I have the factory NAv in mine. Is there any setups out there that can replace it, and still look decent?
