Announced at CES 2014, AT&T and GM have teamed up to put 4G LTE in select 2015 models. The 2015 Chevy Malibu will be the first car to have integrated LTE, which will start at just $10/month. And so far the only choice for 4G LTE is from AT&T. Which is a great choice actually, considering how great their coverage is. Although I think the choice between Verizon and AT&T would be a bit better. Now I was able to take a look at the 2015 Chevy Malibu at the North American International Auto Show in January, and man is it sweet. But I’ve always had a sweet spot for the Malibu and Impala.
According to CNET:
“The 2015 Chevrolet Malibu will be the first of a fleet of more than 30 GM models that will come with a 4G LTE connection powered by AT&T this year. Customers get either three months or 3 gigabytes of data as part of a free trial, and can re-up with plans that range between $5 and $50.”
AT&T will give you 200MB for $10/month, 1GB for $20/month, 3GB for $30/month, and 5GB for $50/month. These data buckets may seem pretty small, but I doubt that you’ll go over it. As you’d mostly be using it for Google Maps and such. Although streaming music from it would be nice as well, however that does eat up data pretty quick. You’ll be able to add the Chevy Malibu to your AT&T account, just like it was another phone, tablet, laptop, etc. Pretty cool.
This is all part of On-Star which is built into the dash, so no worrying about connecting it or anything. You’ll probably just need to sign into AT&T’s network somehow, but it’s pretty sweet. How many of you have your eyes on the 2015 Chevy Malibu? Let us know in the comments below.
