March 4th, 2021 by

Whether in a family minivan like the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica, or the street-peeling 2021 Dodge Charger, the Uconnect Infotainment System is there to not only to personalize your driving experience but to enhance your driving excitement. This system provides the latest technology that keeps you connected to your favorite smart apps and provides innovative driver assistance. Here is everything you need to know about all the neat features of the Uconnect Infotainment System. 

CONNECT YOURSELF: Unconnect, one of the automotive industry’s award-winning connected vehicle platforms, can be found in nearly every new car brand operating under the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) umbrella, including the Dodge Challenger, Jeep Cherokee, the Chrysler Pacifica, and the Ram 1500. Uconnect offers the latest in connectivity, entertainment, navigation, and communication features to make your driving experience better, safer, and more enjoyable. Some of the awesome options include Bluetooth audio streaming from your smartphone, or talk and tunes via SiriusXM satellite radio. Most of these actions can also be performed using buttons on the steering wheel and secondary buttons usually found on the center console.

SLEEK TO THE TOUCH: Welcome to the age of the touchscreen! The different screens in the various cars equipped with Uconnect are equally diverse. The 2021 Jeep Cherokee offers a 7.0-inch screen. An 8.4-inch screen is available in most Dodge models, including the Challenger. Ram, however, takes it up a notch with the 12-inch screen that’s installed in top-end trims of the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 pickups. Clear, recognizable icons populate the home screen, and some versions of the software let the front passengers move tiles around with a drag-and-drop motion similar to a smartphone. The menu bar at the bottom of the screen provides the driver with shortcuts to frequently-used features like radio, navigation, and climate control features. Particular Uconnect versions offer model-specific software. For example, performance-oriented models like the Challenger Hellcat feature an app called Performance Pages that provides information like the engine’s horsepower, torque output, and more. 

ACCESS IS KEY: Uconnect Access is a separate service for owners, for a modest monthly subscription fee. In addition to giving you access to information and reviews through services like Yelp, this life-saving app will put you in contact with 24/7 roadside assistance if there’s trouble, and even generates a vehicle health report. It also notifies owners via text when their vehicle alarm goes off, and it can send the vehicle’s current location to the police if it’s stolen. The Send ‘n Go function lets drivers send an address from their phone to their car. Uconnect Access’s smartphone app also makes it possible to remotely start the engine, lock or unlock the doors, and check the fuel level. Now that is key to convenience!

The heart of any fun-filled road trip or a vehicle’s dependability these days is the in-dash touchscreen, and they just don’t come any better than Uconnect. Uconnect is one of the best on the market and adds sophistication and versatility to already spectacular vehicles like the 2021 Jeep Renegade or the Ram 2500.
