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 cars is the job of the Uconnect​ system. 

 
 ​

Uconnect®   

Uconnect helps drivers understand how to use and operate the many features, and connect their personal communication and media devices to their vehicle’s electronic systems. Uconnect allows drivers to easily adjust seat or cabin temperature, select a new music station or make a call without taking their eyes from the road.
 
Vehicles fitted with the latest generation of the 8.4-inch Uconn​ect​ s​ystems, such as the Chrysler 200, ​Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango and Ram light- and heavy-duty pickups, come with an included trial of Uconnect Access.​
 
Here are a few of the benefits offered by the Uconnect system.
