Jeep Cherokee gets Amazon Alexa Compatibility Features

The Jeep Cherokee Latitude will be getting a serious upgrade in 2018. Jeep is introducing its new Tech Connect Package in order to enhance the user experience for Jeep owners. The Tech Connect Package includes the brand new Uconnect Skill features for Amazon Alexa. Uconnect Skill will allow Jeep owners to use voice commands to activate their Jeep Cherokee from the comfort of their home using Amazon’s Alexa.

Tech Connect Package will allow you to start the vehicle’s engine, lock and unlock doors, send navigation instructions, and check fuel and tire pressure before you ever leave your home.
The introduction of Amazon Alexa to the Jeep Cherokee allows us to meet consumers’ increasing desire for innovation of information,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “Jeep Cherokee’s new Tech Connect Package allows customers to minimize the everyday stresses of busy lifestyles by providing them with a variety of ways to stay conveniently connected to their vehicles, while making every drive exceptionally informative, entertaining and unique.”

Jeep Cherokee Latitudes that are equipped with the Tech Connect Package will receive an Amazon Echo Dot with a free three-month subscription to the Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan. This will give Jeep owners access to millions of songs, fully customizable playlists, and personalized radio stations. Also included is a three-month membership to Audible which will give owners access to over 375,000 audio books from the top publishers.

The Tech Connect Package in the Jeep Cherokee Latitude will include 8.4-inch infotainment center with 3G connectivity, rear backup assist, and a Premium Audio Group with a one year subscription to Sirius XM.

“Customers with an Alexa device in their home can simply ask Alexa to start their Jeep Cherokee, send directions to their navigation system and more, before they even leave their house,” said Ned Curic, Vice President Automotive at Amazon Alexa. “Voice is a big part of the future because it can simplify everyday tasks like these and we are excited that Jeep is bringing this level of connectivity to customers.”
