Publication site Wards honored the Chrysler Pacifica and the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee L by putting them on their 2021 Wards 10 Best User Experience List. Both Stellantis vehicles are geared with the brand’s Uconnect 5 infotainment system, which has better connectivity, richer content and an improved customization experience.
“Uconnect 5 is designed to be the most advanced in-car technology we have ever produced, and we’re honored that Wards has selected the system for two spots on their 10 Best User Experience list,” said Mamatha Chamarthi, Head of Software Business and Product Management. “We are dedicated to providing all occupants with greater connectivity, easy-to-use content and innovative features to seamlessly elevate the automobile to a third living space.”
In order to help with the selection process, editors of Wards determined the comprehensive user experience of 25 vehicles, grading them on factors like practicality, infotainment features, sound systems, vehicle connectivity, driver assistance technology, information/displays, system compatibility, voice control, materials and overall value.
“Minivans have always delivered a unique user experience and the refreshed 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle is everything we could want in a minivan,” said Christie Schweinsberg, Wards Intelligence Principal Analyst. “It has the right mix of physical switchgear and an easy-to-navigate touchscreen. Voice commands work well, smartphone pairing is lightning fast and this minivan offers virtually every advanced driver-assist technology you could ever want, including standard, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control.
“We love the FamCam, a ceiling-mounted camera above the second row that helps parents answer that most elusive question: Who touched whom first? This is a rolling high-tech living room,” she added.
The Pacifica minivan also encompasses a 10.1-inch touchscreen, the largest in its class, along with (first in its segment) USB Type C ports that make way for devices to charge up to four times faster than standard ones. The vehicle also has an available class-exclusive Uconnect Theater system that comes with built-in games and apps.
Also carrying the automaker’s most up-to-date interior gadgets is the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee L. In this truck, you’ll get faster operating speeds, new content and improved personalization. The Uconnect also has new available convenience and connected services, ensuring that both drivers and passengers aren’t lulled to sleep.
“For 2021, the Jeep Grand Cherokee L gains a third row and delivers a spectacular user experience, from the brightly configured digital instrument cluster and neatly integrated user-friendly touchscreen to the outstanding driver-assistance technologies and dreamy optional McIntosh sound system,” Wards Intelligence Principal Analyst Bob Gritzinger said. “And the brains behind it all is Stellantis’ Uconnect 5 infotainment architecture, which delivers five times the computing power of the previous generation.”
More features on the Grand Cherokee L include an available high-def rear-seat monitoring camera system, the best in its class. There’s also equipment like a night vision camera, drowsy driver detection, head-up display, an advanced L2 automated driving system, standard 10.25-inch digital cluster with almost two dozen different menus, available seat back massage for front-row passengers and ambient lighting with a five-color selection.
The winners will officially receive their honors on November 17 at the Wards 10 Best User Experience ceremony at the Suburban Showplace in Novi, Michigan.
