Uconnect 5 is hugeeee. I mean it's so important for FCA. In the last years German car makers leapfrogged everyone else when it comes to infotainment. Their execution was not the best but their technology content, screen size and screen resolution were top notch. They have advanced voice recognition commands and firmware on the air upgrades. Finally all of these is coming to FCA.
I don't know about US but in the EU currently cars are bought by technology content. Technology as some safety assist like automatic braking, lane keeping or detection and similar. Cars which have it in base trim are more desirable. Then other part of technology is infotainment. Size of the screen, resolution, rear view camera or 360° camera, mirroring which is wireless and of course on the fly on the air updates. And then virtual cockpit or fully digital instrument cluster which BTW is also run by infotainment hardware.
FCA lacks in these departments. In the next 24 months FCA will do a lot to improve this. AFAIK all upcoming MCA models or all new models for EU and US will have this new infotainment as standard or as an option.
Just take a look at upcoming Grand Cherokee. 10.1" screens for both infotainment and instrument cluster. I will put my money on availability of full navigation on instrument cluster. For sure they will offer it on Alfa and Maserati with fully digital 12.4" cut instrument cluster.
