When the 2012
Opel Astra Buick Verano makes its way to dealerships across the country later this year, the Delta II-based Buick will have the IntelliLink infotainment system as standard equipment, GM Authority’s sources have revealed.
The system, which is the equivalent of the Chevrolet MyLink announced for GM’s bow tie brand, will also be available (and perhaps also be standard) in the 2012 Regal and LaCrosse as well as the 2013 Enclave. IntelliLink will offer a plethora of infotainment features via its new high-resolution full-color 7-inch touch screen display, including cell phone integration via Bluetooth and/or USB for the delivery of text messages and emails.
It will also offer playback of (audio) files stored on the device as well as Stitcher and Pandora streaming via Bluetooth Audio (A2DP) or USB. Furthermore, IntelliLink will integrate with touch screen navigation systems while expanding Buick’s existing Bluetooth and USB capabilities — allowing smartphone control by means of voice commands and steering wheel-mounted controls.
