An optional DVD entertainment system – consisting of center-console-mounted DVD player, overhead 7″ active matrix LCD display integrated into the headliner, wireless remote control, and two wireless headsets – is located for rear-seat passenger enjoyment. In addition to video DVDs, the system will play audio DVDs, audio CDs, MP3 audio discs and video CDs. There are also plug-in jacks on the housing to show video from a video camera, connect video games for display on the screen and play music directly from an MP3 player.
A unique feature of the DVD entertainment system, operated by the remote control unit and made possible by the vehicle’s Controller Area Network system, is the ability of the vehicle speakers to play audio from a disc in the DVD player while the headphones play audio from the satellite radio, AM/FM radio, or a disc in the radio CD player.
“Chrysler Group’s vehicle communications strategy places an emphasis on creating a safe driving environment through practical innovations, while enabling customers to choose the services they want,” said Withrow. “It’s all about simplicity, safety, freedom and flexibility.”
Pricing for the factory-installed system has not been announced. Pricing as a Mopar accessory is $1395.00 MSRP plus installation (P/N 82208820).
