HD Radio posted new gains among automakers with announcements that Chrysler and Acura will offer the technology for the first time, Hyundai will expand HD Radio to seven vehicle models from six, and Toyota will offer it in the Venza for the first time.
In addition, Cadillac announced that the 2013 SRX will offer HD Radio technology with iTunes tagging as a standard feature. iTunes tagging lets users tag songs for later preview and purchase through iTunes
With the announcements, HD Radio is or will be available as a factory-installed feature from 27 automotive brands, said HD Radio developer iBiquity Digital. The brands are Acura, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Ford, GMC, Hyundai, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI USA, Porsche, Ram, Rolls-Royce, Scion, SRT (Chrysler), Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
