The soon-to-be-revealed Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will be the first vehicles in the automotive industry to integrate Amazon Fire TV for Auto, which, says Jeep, will give passengers access to shows, movies, apps, unique vehicle features and Alexa.
Fire TV for Auto communicates directly with Jeep’s Uconnect 5 system, expanding on Alexa Auto in-vehicle technology to help drivers stay focused on the road and keep passengers entertained. As with other Fire TV devices, content syncs with an existing Amazon account, making it possible to navigate favorite apps and resume playback of a show. With Fire TV built in, customers can pause a show in their homes and seamlessly continue watching once they get into their vehicles.
“The all-new 2022 model-year Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer are designed and engineered to set a new standard for American premium in the large SUV segment,” said Christian Meunier, Jeep CEO at Stellantis. “Launching Fire TV for Auto in the Wagoneer lineup as an industry-first technology illustrates one of the many ways we intend to deliver class-leading technology and connectivity to our customers.”
Sandeep Gupta, VP and general manager of Amazon Fire TV, added, “We reimagined Fire TV for the automobile with a purpose-built experience that delivers the best in entertainment, anywhere you go. With Fire TV built in, customers can stream their favorite shows, see if they left the lights on at home with Alexa, and take advantage of unique controls through the Uconnect system.”
