    Meanwhile, Kia is allowing 2014 model owners to upgrade to CarPlay for free.

    FCA sucks.

    I will not be buying this vehicle at the end of my lease if no one has come up with a way to retrofit it with CarPlay. I will not spend the next decade tied to a crap factory nav system/media player.
    I feel the same way about other updates that are for every 2014 model except the 300 SRT.

    Correct. Apple CarPlay has specific hardware requirements that the UConnect RA3/4 systems do not posses. For starters, the screen resolution of these units is too low.

    While purchasing my 2017 Dodge Durango GT, the salesperson mentioned that I would be able to get CarPlay with a software update, is this accurate? I doubt this claim, but would be happy if this would be possible.

    Complete BS I'm guessing.

    The 2017 Durangos (possibly the 16s, I don't know) have the new Uconnect with capacitive touch. Apparently Dodge has decided to make the Challenger and Charger CarPlay ready, but not the Durango and other models. From what I've read it sounds like the new Uconnect system in the new Durangos has the ability to support Apple CarPlay, but Dodge hasn't done so yet. I tweeted them and they said "At this time, we don't have details on plans to expand this to other models, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience."

    Ugh.
