Cerence, for a world in motion, announced that FCA has selected Cerence Drive to power voice recognition in the all-new Uconnect 5 global platform. The latest updates within Uconnect 5 enable FCA to provide a helpful, content-rich and personalized driving experience, making it the most advanced Uconnect system.

With Uconnect 5, Cerence voice capabilities will be available across all FCA product lines for the first time and can be accessed through a wake-up word that corresponds to the brand like “Hey, Jeep.” Leveraging the Cerence Drive platform, Uconnect 5 features a new voice recognition engine with natural language understanding that enables the system to recognize statements that would typically only be understood in human-to-human conversation, such as “Find an available EV charging station near me.”
