In collaboration with AT&T, General Motors has announced plans to launch next-generation 5G cellular connectivity in future vehicles. The two titans of innovation will work together on a core network with will make everything from navigating to listening to music to downloading over-the-air updates faster.
According to GM, 5G will be available in select vehicles starting with the 2024 model year. You can bet that key vehicles like the Chevrolet Equinox, Silverado, and Silverado EV will be among the first. Vehicles from the 2019 model year on equipped with 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot capabilities will also see improved connectivity once they move onto the new infrastructure.
Supported by AT&T’s 5G network, the most reliable in the U.S., this move will improve and support services such as OnStar® and Connected Services, used by millions of GM customers across North America for navigation, music streaming, and voice command technology. GM and AT&T have been working towards launching the world’s largest 5G-enabled fleet for two years. GM Vice President of Global Connected Services Santiago Chamorro says that the deployment of 5G in future vehicles “demonstrates our commitment to growth through software-enabled services and reimagining every customer touchpoint by enabling faster connectivity speeds to power in-vehicle voice-enabled services, navigation, and apps that our customers have grown to love.”
