GM to offer Bluetooth by 2009 Model Year

General Motors has announced that it will roll out Bluetooth hands free technology across a number of its vehicles, beginning in the 2009 model year. Currently, only one GM vehicle — the Cadillac STS — offers Bluetooth, leaving a glaring hole in the General's option list.

In the Q&A section of the GM FYI Blog, Phil Colley of GM Performance Parts said that GM will soon launch the "broadest rollout of Bluetooth in the industry," involving 30 vehicles by the 2009 model year.

While the Cadillac CTS and Chevrolet Malibu have been heavily praised by the media, one complaint that has always seemed to surface is their lack of an available Bluetooth system. The addition of the technology should sway some buyers and ultimately increase interest and sales of GM vehicles.



I'm sure we'll see this in the Camaro.

Sweeeeet, that will come in handy for the Camaro. That way I can drive and shift properly.

Really? I'd actually prefer to use a Bluetooth headset. That way I can seamlessly continue the conversation when I get in or out of the car. Also, I don't necessarily always want whoever else is in the car to be able to hear the conversation.

I think it's great to have as an option, and if my car had it, I'd probably use it every once in a while, but I won't be selecting it as an option unless it is grouped with something else I want.

Great, so now drivers have one more excuse to drive distracted, create traffic jams, and nearly kill me. Thank you GM.

^Actually I think this wwill work to lessen the distraction. My dad used to have a phone connector station on the Saab and it worked great, said he never felt distracted at all. I think this is way better then a headset since i want to to hear the music in the speakers as I drive along, so I don't use headset often.

Well, people want it so its good that its being included. I personally don't like the idea of calling+driving. But I don't have to use it while I drive

focusing on a conversation is way more distracting than the actual holding of the phone. So encouraging in-car calling with bluetooth just makes the problem worse.

^Completely disagree. I have had lots of with other people in the car while driving and it doesn't distract me. if I need to concentrate harder I just tell them to wait a bit.

Oh goodie! We have bluetooth stereos in 2 of our cars and it rocks! I was hoping we wouldn't have to replace the stereo right away in the 5th gen to have it be bluetooth capable
