Chevrolet is expanding its inventory of vehicles that come with available integration to Apple’s Siri intelligent assistant system.

The tie-in with Apple began in the Chevy Sonic and Spark, but now the brand is including the 2014 Camaro, Cruze, Equinox, Malibu, SS and Volt as cars that can support Siri, activated through the Chevy MyLink Infotainment system. Siri is Apple’s hands-free assistant that can perform tasks such as looking up destinations or weather conditions based on voice commands.

To setup the link, an iPhone running iOS 6 or iOS 7 must be connected via Bluetooth to the car’s MyLink system. Once the phone is paired, a voice activation button located on the steering wheel can be used to give Siri directions, such as playing certain songs or reading and composing text messages.

“The response to Siri Eyes Free integration in Chevy Sonic and Spark from our customers has been remarkable,” said Chris Perry, Chevy VP of U.S. marketing.
