Enhance Your Driving With Automatic Crash Response, Remote Control, Navigation, and Voice Assistance

In an exciting update, General Motors has declared that starting in 2025, their cars will come equipped with OnStar One Essentials as a standard feature. This upgraded system offers an array of new capabilities such as Automatic Crash Response, remote control of vehicles, and navigation and voice assistance options.

Initially offered as a costly add-on for $1,500, the OnStar service has now been integrated into the standard features of luxury models and variants. This recent declaration states that all upcoming Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac automobiles will come equipped with OnStar, starting with the 2025 Chevrolet Trax and Buick Envista. This move marks a significant shift in the availability of this technology across various makes and models.

Consumers will delight in the OnStar One Essentials and OnStar One Business Essentials, both included at no extra charge for a duration of eight years. In addition, purchasers of Cadillac vehicles will receive supplementary high-end OnStar amenities for a period of three years.

According to Marissa West, president of GM North America, the company’s goal is to enhance technology and value for customers by implementing standardized versions of their most desirable OnStar features. This will ultimately result in improved connectivity for both vehicles and customers in the long run.

The innovative Automatic Crash Response system links clients to skilled OnStar specialists who provide prompt aid in case of a collision. Simultaneously, the myChevrolet, myGMC, myBuick, and myCadillac mobile applications feature remote vehicle commands that enable owners to manage and track their automobiles on their smartphones. These functions include the ability to remotely lock or unlock their vehicles, start them from a distance, and locate them. Furthermore, through this feature, owners can access diagnostics and receive real-time updates on their vehicle’s status.

In terms of navigation and voice guidance capabilities, these functions offer a convenient and enhanced ownership experience through the utilization of popular apps such as Alexa Built-in, Google Assistant, Google Maps, Maps+, and Waze on eligible vehicles. The Michigan-based manufacturer, GM, has decided to part ways with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, meaning they will not be available on their future vehicles. However, some EVs based on Ultium technology, such as the Honda Prolongue, will still include these two connectivity features.

“Through this decision, each newly released car in our collection will come equipped with a captivating array of safety and connected features that are unique to GM, thanks to our extensive 30-year history of OnStar expertise and advancement.”
