Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay® Capabilities Coming to GM Models

General Motors has announced that many of its 2021 models are receiving wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capabilities. Vehicles with these capabilities will make it more convenient for you and your family to enjoy smartphone connectivity.

Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ enable you to connect your phone to your vehicle’s touch screen and utilize your favorite smartphone features on the go. As such, you can send and receive messages, listen to your playlists and access different apps.

With wireless integration in 2021 GM models, you can use all these features by taking advantage of Bluetooth® technology instead of plugging your phone into a USB cable. In the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, you can have wireless smartphone connectivity by simply opting for the available Technology Package.  

Other 2021 vehicles that will offer wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® capabilities include the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe. In addition, the new GMC Yukon and Yukon XL as well as the Buick Encore GX will have these impressive capabilities available.

We at Steve Austin’s Auto Group are excited to add 2021 Chevrolet, GMC and Buick models to our dealership located in Bellefontaine, Ohio. Contact us if you’d like to learn more about these new models and the innovative technologies that they will offer.
