Fiat Chrysler Automobiles confirms Apple CarPlay support coming to some Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge vehicles

Fiat Chrysler on Monday announced its fourth-generation Uconnect system, which will bring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to select vehicle models later this year. In a press release, the automaker says that the addition of CarPlay will give drivers a smarter, safer way to use their iPhones while in their cars.

“With fourth-gen,” said Joni Christensen, Head of Uconnect Marketing, “we are continuing to minimize the everyday stresses of busy lifestyles by providing drivers with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicles, while making every drive exceptionally informative, entertaining and unique.”

The CarPlay system will be used through that 8.4-inch touchscreen and the FCA’s Uconnect, letting users interact with the system’s built-in features, while also giving them the ability to access their text messages, navigation, and even Siri while on the go.

It’s certainly good news for CarPlay, which has recently seen a lot of adoption all at once from a variety of different manufacturers.
