Chrysler Group’s acclaimed Uconnect Access system has been named AOL Autos’ Technology of the Year, beating five other finalists and more than 30 nominees.
The TOY judging panel comprised editors from AOL Autos, Autoblog and Engadget. Each had one vote. But an additional endorsement was reserved for the winner of an online vote.
Over two weeks, nearly 20,000 people visited AOL Autos to learn more about the nominees and cast ballots for the most innovative technology. The expert judges’ decision had given Uconnect Access a slender one-point lead, so its victory was not assured until it captured the popular vote.
“We are honored to be recognized by AOL Autos, but the public’s validation of Uconnect Access is especially rewarding,” said Marios Zenios, Vice President-Uconnect Systems and Services. “Clearly, we are on the right track as we focus on designing features that are easy to learn, easy to use and – most importantly – mindful of the fact that driving is the No.1 reason people are behind the wheel. Uconnect Access enables our customers to keep their focus on the road, where it belongs.”
