New Smartphone Uconnect App Unveiled at CES

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we get to see some of the most exciting new technologies coming our way from across practically every industry, including automotive. This year, from Chrysler, now known as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), we get a new smartphone Uconnect app that has some pretty cool features.

With the Uconnect Access app, drivers will be able to remotely program a destination into their navigation system, get a vehicle health report, receive alerts when key vehicle systems need maintenance, and even locate their car using their phone.

“The Uconnect team is dedicated to delivering services and features that are innovative, functional and most of all easy to use,” said Al Amici, Head of Global Uconnect System and Services, FCA US LLC, in a statement. “We understand that our customers lead busy lifestyles and our goal is to minimize the everyday stresses by providing drivers with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicle.”

Imagine having this app on your phone. Then, the next time you can’t remember where you parked in a crowded parking lot, simply open the Vehicle Finder and see a map of exactly where your car is. You can then select Sound Horn and find your car in a snap.

Or, you can save yourself some time by presetting your destinations before you get in the car. Just find where you want to go in the Uconnect Access app, select Send to Vehicle, and when you start your car touch Go Now and you’re on your way.

Initially, the app will only be compatible with select 2015 Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep models equipped with either Uconnect 8.4A or 8.4AN, but will be added to additional vehicles as the system progresses.

Chrysler Commercials Feature Music Industry’s Best

If you caught the American Music Awards, you may have noticed, along with us at Warsaw CDJR, that Chrysler has got great taste in music. The automaker matched up five very talented artists from Interscope Records with five vehicles from its multi-brand lineup for what amounted to a marketing bombardment of the AMA TV audience.

Marissa Hunter, director-global brand advertising and head of Ram Truck brand advertising, explained to Ad Age just how Chrysler went about deciding which artist would represent which ride in the Chrysler music ads…

Gwen Stefani got the Fiat 500L. Both are “fun, young and fashionable.” Plus, she has an Italian last name.

Phillip Phillips had the pleasure of driving a Ram 1500. Chrysler felt that the up-and-coming bard had a “a strong familiarity with the American heartland” that went well with the truck’s image.

The Imagine Dragons song “I Bet My Life” contained themes of “adventure and taking risks,” which dovetailed with the image of Jeep.

Keys to the Chrysler 200 went to Fergie. She’s “young, energetic and stylish,” much like the sedan with which she shared screen time.

And naturally, Eminem was left to promote the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Chrysler felt that a performance vehicle could best symbolize the themes from Eminem’s hit tune, “Guts Over Fear.”

In November, Las Vegas isn’t just the city of sin—it is also the city of aftermarket modifications. Each year, the SEMA Show turns Las Vegas into the place to be for carmakers and aftermarket tuners from around the world. This year, carmakers are once again looking to show off their models’ modifications and Jeep is no exception. With two Renegade concepts in the wings, the American carmaker is ready to take on this year’s the competition.

The first Renegade concept, called Frostbite, shows the small SUVs cool side with a white exterior that adds a bit of ice with blue front grille surroundings; partially blue wheels, and blue mirror caps. Inside the cabin, this Arctic theme continues with pearl-colored seats. The Mopar roof rack gives the outdoorsy-types the ability to carry their skis and snowboards, while a rock rail guard keeps the Renegade protected from, well, rocks.

If the Frostbite Renegade concept is made for winter, then Riptide is perfect for those beachy summers. The Vibrance Grandeur Blue paint job catches the eye with ease, while black accents enhance the blue color. This eye-popping blue color continues in the interior, where white accents add a nice contrast.
