Ram and SiriusXM today announced another industry-first feature for Ram truck customers. 2020 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 and Chassis Cab trucks equipped with Ram’s class-leading Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen will offer SiriusXM’s new “Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora,” which deliver a combination of rich music curation and industry-leading personalization not found in any other audio entertainment service.
Ram truck owners with a SiriusXM All Access subscription, using the SiriusXM with 360L platform on their Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen, can create their own ad-free music stations based on the artist they are listening to. On their touchscreen, subscribers can then give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down within the SiriusXM service, or even skip songs, to create their own personal channel that plays more of what they want.
Previous model-year Ram truck owners aren’t left out. Via over-the-air software updates in the fourth quarter of this year, 2019 Ram trucks with Uconnect 12-inch screen will receive updates granting access to these features. Early-build 2020 Ram trucks equipped with Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen will receive the update in October.
Another new feature available to Ram customers using SiriusXM with 360L is Sports Notifications. This enables the subscriber to select their favorite teams and get an on-screen notification when their team’s game is on, then easily tune into that game with the touch of a button. The SiriusXM Sports Notification feature will be available next month on 2020 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500 and Chassis Cab trucks and on 2019 Ram 1500 models with the fourth-quarter update.
SiriusXM subscribers will be notified of the update on their Uconnect 12-inch screen.
Ram trucks were the first to offer SiriusXM with 360L, SiriusXM’s groundbreaking next-generation platform when it made its debut last year. SiriusXM with 360L delivers more SiriusXM channels and variety to the vehicle by delivering content via both satellite and streaming. It gives the user more choice at their fingertips and allows for a more personalized “lean back” experience as SiriusXM serves them content recommendations based on their listening preferences. Drivers and their passengers will find it easier to discover more of what SiriusXM offers, including exclusive SiriusXM On Demand programming. Ram customers can also manage their SiriusXM account, renew their subscription and contact SiriusXM through the touchscreen on the dash when their vehicle is parked.
