I've noticed on this list and equipment lists for other new vehicles, no mention of CD players in infotainment listings. So, old guy question, No CD Player?
Yeah, looks like we’re going totally digital. There is the aftermarket if you need...hard to believe CDs are already going the way of the 8-track.
My MACH I had an 8 track player. I kept it, and even found a few old tapes to playin it just for fun. Was cool to have the only car with 8 track.

But yeah, CDs are a thing of the past.

You’ll be fine. Use this, it plays through the cassette deck. ?

Surely it will have Apple CarPlay and whatever Androids version Is called. My wife’s Telluride has it and it’s great.

How cool it would be if they created a retro looking 8-track cassette player, but made it functional as a phone charger/phone connect device. Just thinking out loud but may be a nice vintage look ?

The interior of my jeeps always get way too dirty for cds. They would get a lil mud on em and be ruined as soon as they spun in the player. I just use a lil gig stick if the radio doesnt get me. I prefer the radio though. I like to know there is someone in a chair picking the perfect song for that moment. Not many stations like that these days but there are a few.

CDs had a longer life span than 8-track!

I've only had tape decks and CD players on cars as a millennial, but once aux/bluetooth because standard on vehicles I switched entirely to using an MP3 player or phone to play music. I've had my FiST for 4 years and have never used the satellite radio or FM, always use the phone wirelessly paired to stream audiobooks/podcasts/music through music apps.

I haven't used a music CD in a probably 8-9 years. The last desktop computer I built 5 years ago doesn't even have a CD drive.
