Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is adding Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its Uconnect infotainment system that will be added to 2017 model year vehicles as it enters its fourth generation.
FCA will initially offer the new Uconnect system with 2017 models of its Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger, the company has announced.
The fourth-generation Uconnect also includes performance improvements that enable a faster start-up time and enhanced processing power. Uconnect will display on larger 8.4-inch touchscreens.
In a related update, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee will arrive with Off-road Pages, which allows the driver to monitor off-road performance and capability, including terrain modes, coolant and oil temperatures, wheel articulation, and steering angle.
Uconnect was launched in 2003.
