You don’t need a Jeep to try Fire TV in your car. Amazon has revealed that Fire TV is coming to more vehicles this year, including the 2022 Ford Explorer and Lincoln Navigator SUVs. More Stellantis cars will also feature this feature, including the Chrysler Pacifica and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The company did not provide timelines for when the interface would be available.
Fire TV in cars is basically a small-scale version of what you might be used to at home: passengers can watch videos, run apps and use Alexa, only with an interface optimized for screens on the seat backs. You can save some content for offline access if you drive through areas where internet access is erratic. The version currently in the Jeep Wagoneer includes a remote that also controls some car functions, but it’s not clear if that will also be ported to Ford vehicles.
Amazon clearly sees Fire TV in the car as a way to keep users in its ecosystem when they are away from home. However, it should still be useful for entertaining kids on long journeys, or just catching up on shows while sitting in the passenger seat.
