Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America is supplying the Chrysler Group with large touch-screen radios for Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles. The dash-mounted radio is available as an option and features a 6.5-in touch screen with standard access to Sirius satellite radio as well as basic AM/FM service and a DVD player that plays music in the front seat or music and videos for rear-seat passengers on vehicles equipped with a rear screen. A motorized mechanism tilts the screen to provide access to the DVD player. The radio features a 28-GB hard drive that can store up to 7000 songs as well as navigation map data, a USB port for downloading audio and picture files, and an audio jack. The radio's screen also displays the rearview camera image for vehicles equipped with a backup camera system.
