The 2022 Mopars getting huge Uconnect speed boost

The Uconnect 5 system has more changes than just capitalization, which moves from UConnect to Uconnect. Now, the system is four times faster than Uconnect 4, with three times as much memory, WiFi capability, and more flexibility.

Ram. The new Uconnect 5 telematics system will be standard on Ram Chassis Cab Laramie and above, and Ram pickup models from Big Horn upwards; the system includes tow-specific navigation when used in Rams. For 2022, Ram chassis cabs will also have black interior trim, including cluster rings; dual fuel tanks will be optional with the 6.4 Hemi; and Harvest Sunrise will join the paint colors. Uconnect 5 is optional on Ram chassis cab in Tradesman and SLT levels. Ram 1500s get a new filtering system, standard, eliminating 95% of airborne particulates, making it the cleanest cabin air ever in a Mopar—taking out pollens, allergens, bacteria, and smoke.

2021 Jeep® Grand Cherokee L Overland features the new Uconnect 5 system and its 10.1-inch touchscreen and an all-new driver control center with metal rotary shifter, ride height and Selec-Terrain switches.

Chrysler. Chrysler minivans already have Uconnect 5, and the Pacifica is gaining an Amazon Fire TV option as well. New for 2022, the Voyager also gets Uconnect 5, standard.
