General Motors originally revealed that it would bring in-car 4G LTE into its newest vehicles at CES in Las Vegas last month, and the automaker has confirmed Canada will be part of that rollout when they flip the switch on the service this summer.
The Canadian International Auto Show currently underway in Toronto is showcasing GM’s latest and greatest vehicles, including the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette, which will be among the first to get the new feature when it goes live in June. The inclusion of LTE will be baked into the existing OnStar telematics service GM has been offering since 1996.
Aside from the new Corvette, the 2015 model-year Impala, Equinox, Volt, Malibu, Silverado and Silverado HD equipped with MyLink will get the feature first. The new 2015 Chevrolet Trax will also be LTE-enabled exclusively in Canada. This won’t be a luxury option, as the overall plan is to roll out across almost all vehicles in the Chevy, Buick, GMC and Cadillac lines. Older vehicles won’t be able to be retrofitted. (more…)
