What does it mean to be connected? Is it simply plugging into something, or is that something, something more? For Uconnect® it is. It's your source of power - the power of technology that helps you stream your favorite music, call a friend, find your favorite restaurant and get help when you need it. From entertainment to navigation and beyond, Uconnect is there, connecting your life with your drive. 

What is Uconnect?

Uconnect is the in-car technology used in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram cars, trucks and SUVs. It comprises all things entertainment, phone, and navigation behind the wheel. There are several different Uconnect systems, which are indicated by a three-character code that will be on the vehicle's sticker on our lot. You can read more about those codes and variances here.

One of the benefits of buying a car at Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is access to the award-winning Uconnect® technology system. For more information on Uconnect capabilities and which options are available for the vehicle you want, speak with our knowledgeable sales staff at Shuman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today.

What's New in 2018 for Uconnect® Technology?

In virtually all FCA vehicles, Uconnect® is the central hub for all things information and entertainment. Since 2003, the system has been continually updated and for 2018 comes with several notable changes.

On-demand 4G Wi-Fi hotspot capability now supports up to eight mobile devices and is debuting on numerous vehicles, including the Chrysler 300 and Pacifica, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Renegade, Dodge Charger, Challenger, and Durango, and Ram 1500 and 2500/3500, as well as the Ram Chassis Cab equipped with the 8.4-inch Uconnect® 4C or 4C NAV system.
