Technology

FCA US continues to engineer and produce new technologies that meet the needs of changes in our market.  

Americans spend an average of 100 minutes in their cars each day. That makes the dashboard a central information hub. Harnessing the power of smartphones and helping manage the flood of information in a growing number of FCA US vehicles is the job of the Uconnect®​ system.
