For the 2016 model year, Chevrolet will offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility in 14 models, including the all-new 2016 Cruze that will be available at Wiesner of Huntsville by the end of June.
That will put Chevrolet ahead of the competition by offering Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility in more vehicles than any other automotive brand.
The technology will be accessible via Chevy’s 7-inch MyLink infotainment system (and 8-inch version that will be compatible with Apple CarPlay at the beginning of the 2016 model year).
“For most of us, our smartphones are essential,” said Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors. “Partnering with Apple and Google to offer CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility across the widest range of models in the industry is a great example of how Chevrolet continues to democratize technology that’s important to our customers.”
The move once again makes Chevrolet one of the first brands to introduce new customer-centric innovations (e.g. Siri Eyes Free functionality). Chevrolet and GM also offer OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot. In other words, if technology and staying connected are important to you, you’ve just got to get a Chevy!
