"Wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto make connecting and sharing easy"

Nice! Are the new USB ports for those looking to charge USB C? For Apple people don't worry, you can get a USB C to lightning cable with fast charging -

It would be great if someone can confirm that UConnect 5 vehicles will have fast charging capable USB C ports ;)

So this is a software/hardware bundle. Not an update we can get for our existing systems?
Correct. Select new vehicles only, starting with certain 2021 model year vehicles.I don't think the presser referenced which ones, but if I was to guess - Pacifica and seven passenger next generation Grand Cherokee.

Debut on all new car which debuts all new car arhitecture. It's European brand. Take a guess.
Hmm, won't they re-skin it to not say uConnect? It may still use the Android Auto implementation that underlies all next generation FCA infotainment offerings, but if I'm reading your message correctly it would be the first time UConnect is offered in either Alfa or Maesarati.

Honestly, no idea. I thought Alfa Tonale was 2021 calendar/2022 model year...sooo Maesarati?
Debut will be on Fiat. I said while ago on which one. I even said which CPU will use this new system, at least for this application.

BTW, this is not Uconnect as we know. It shares just a name but it's successor of both Uconnect and Alfa Connect 3D. Actually some of novelties like widgets are already present on Alfa Connect 3D.

Maserati is using Uconnect 4.
500e? :)
