GM begins its 4G car rollout with Chevy Corvette, Impala, Malibu and Volt

2014 is going to be a major overhaul year for GM when it comes to the connected car. The majority of Chevy’s new 2015 vehicles will get LTE connectivity as well as an in-dash upgrade.

Starting with the iconic Chevrolet line, General Motors plans to make all of its vehicles LTE-connected cars. Starting this summer, the new 2015 Corvette, Impala, Malibu and Volt will all come with embedded 4G connectivity, GM plans to announce at CES in Las Vegas. GM plans to add LTE to other car and truck models later this year, making the majority of its 2015 Chevy lineup connected by year end.

Though GM last year announced plans to begin connecting all of its U.S. fleet to AT&T’s LTE network as part of the next generation of its OnStar telematics system, until today it hadn’t released many details about the transition. Today GM cars in the U.S. are connected to Verizon’s 2G CDMA networks, but the move to LTE means not only much faster speeds to the car, but also an opportunity to for GM and AT&T to upsell a much broader array of mobile data services beyond telematics and roadside assistance.
