SiriusXM® satellite radio is the best invention for car owners since power windows and heated seats. In fact, it has become one of the must-have features customers look for while shopping for a car. Whether you own a Jeep without SiriusXM® built-in or you’re in the market for a Jeep, this guide has all the answers you need.
1. Does Jeep Offer Satellite Radio On All Models?
Jeep does not offer SiriusXM® on all of their models. It only offers satellite radio on higher trim levels. The execs at Jeep made this decision to help boost sales for the higher trim levels. If they offered SiriusXM® on all models, shoppers would be more inclined to buy standard or base models. SiriusXM® is in high demand, so it makes sense for Jeep to make it an exclusive feature.
2. Can I Add Satellite Radio To My Jeep If It Doesn’t Come With It?
Yes. If your Jeep doesn’t have SiriusXM® satellite radio built-in, you can install an aftermarket solution. The 3 most common solutions are:
- Stand-alone satellite radio
- AUX adapter kit with a satellite radio receiver
- VAIS satellite radio adapter kit
Not all solutions are created equal, though. This article weighs the pros and cons of each solution and concludes that a VAIS satellite radio adapter kit is the best one. It’s compatible with all Wrangler, Renegade, Cherokee, and Compass models, and more.
3. Is There A Genuine OEM Satellite Radio Adapter Available From Jeep?
Jeep doesn’t offer an OEM satellite radio adapter. The Jeep execs decided not to develop one for the same reason they decided not to offer SiriusXM® satellite radio on all models. They don’t want to encourage their customers to buy a base model and then install an OEM satellite radio adapter. While it’ll save the customers a lot of money, it’s not as profitable to the company as making SiriusXM® exclusive on the more expensive trims. Luckily, you can get a VAIS satellite radio adapter kit that’s designed to work with your Jeep.
