iPhone XR takes forever to connect to my car's bluetooth. My old 6 did this immediately

I have a 2009 Ford Flex with an old Microsoft Sync-enabled stereo in it. It used to be I'd get in the car with the iPhone 6, turn on the car, and it would instantly connect to bluetooth, auto-playing whatever was previously playing on my phone. Recently I got an XR, and now I have to wait a few minutes before it locates it. During this time, if I try to switch source to, it fails to find the phone. Eventually it will connect, it will start playing, and then everything is fine.

Is there something different with BT in the XR? Any way to improve this?
