Which cars have Amazon Alexa integration? Updated for 2024

'Alexa, are we there yet?'

Like GearBrain on Facebook

While voice controls like Alexa and Siri in the home are relatively new, the technology has been available in cars for over two decades. Unfortunately, the systems have never been particularly good, offering limited features and often failing to hear you correctly.

But that is slowly changing. Two decades after Mercedes first offered voice control – and after years of car infotainment and communication systems lagging behind computers and smartphones – this technology is finally making a giant leap forward with help from Amazon and Google.

Amazon is currently working with several car makers through its Alexa Auto division, bringing the assistant to new vehicles. With Alexa integrated, drivers can use the assistant in ways they already do at home; you can ask it to check that the front door is locked as you drive away or switch off the smart plug connected to your hair straighteners when you forget.

You can also use Alexa Auto to visit your home via the Echo smart speakers you already own, as well as less advanced Alexa tasks like playing music and checking the weather forecast.

Here is a quick guide for car manufacturers who are starting to fit their vehicles with Alexa.

The electric e-tron SUV comes with integrated Alexa voice control


As of early 2021, select Audi vehicles offer the full Alexa experience, with the assistant listening to your voice commands and working in the car just as it does at home. Alexa first appeared on Audi's electric e-tron SUV but has since been rolled out to several of the company's larger and more premium 2019 and 2020 model year vehicles. These include:

  • A6 2020+
  • A7 2020+
  • A8 2020+
  • e-tron 2019+
  • Q3 2020+
  • Q7 2020+
  • Q8 2020+

You can ask Alexa about the charge level of the electric BMW i3


In 2018, BMW showed how it would integrate Alexa with its car infotainment system. But then, in early 2019, it demonstrated a voice assistant of its own, summoned by saying 'Hey BMW'. You could even change the name to anything you like. It was a strange move for the company to first invest in Alexa integration and then produce an assistant of its own.

But now the situation is simpler, and Alexa Built-in integration is offered on a range of BMW vehicles from model year 2018 onwards. The company has published a video here to show how to set everything up, which requires a BMW ConnectedDrive account, the My BMW smartphone app, and adjusting settings on the car's own iDrive infotainment system. After that, Alexa works with the car's existing voice command button on the steering wheel.

It is important to note that BMW vehicles equipped with BMW's iDrive 7.0 (Operating System 7.0) or later generally support Amazon Alexa. As of March 2024, here is the list of BMW cars that meet this criteria and have Alexa Built-in:

  • BMW i3 2018+
  • BMW i8 2018+
  • BMW 1 Series (from 2018+)
  • BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé
  • BMW 3 Series (from 2018+)
  • BMW 4 Series (from 2018+)
  • BMW 5 Series (from 2020 facelift models)
  • BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo
  • BMW 7 Series (from 2019+)
  • BMW 8 Series
  • BMW X1 (from 2018+)
  • BMW X2 (from 2018+)
  • BMW X3 (from 2018+)
  • BMW X4 (from 2018+)
  • BMW X5 (from 2019+)
  • BMW X6 (from 2020+)
  • BMW X7
  • BMW Z4 (from 2019+)

Additionally, BMW's fully electric and plug-in hybrid models like the BMW iX, iX3, and i4 also feature this integration. It's important to note that specific functionalities and availability can vary based on regional market differences and the vehicle’s production date. For the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding Amazon Alexa integration in BMW vehicles, checking with a local BMW dealership or consulting the official BMW website for your region is recommended.

Which Ford models come with Amazon Alexa?

a photo of Ford infotainment system

Ford integrates Amazon Alexa two ways


An early adopter than most, Ford added Alexa to its Sync in-car infotainment system for a wide range of models from 2016 onwards. This allows the driver to ask Alexa questions and issue commands just as they would at home. Today, Ford offers two types of integrations with Amazon Alexa into your Ford: the built-in integration and the integration with the Ford app. What is the difference?

A Ford model with Amazon Alexa Built-In offers a seamless integration directly within the vehicle's infotainment system, allowing drivers to use Alexa’s voice commands without needing an external device. This built-in functionality provides access to Alexa’s full range of skills, including playing music, getting directions, and controlling smart home devices directly through the car's interface.

On the other hand, a Ford model that integrates with Amazon Alexa via the Ford app requires the use of a smartphone to bridge the connection between Alexa and the vehicle. In this setup, users must first connect their smartphone to their car and use the Ford app to access Alexa's features. While this method still allows for a wide range of voice-controlled functionalities, it relies on the smartphone's internet connection. It can be slightly less streamlined than models with Alexa Built-In, where the integration is direct and doesn't depend on an external device.

Here are the Ford models that come with Amazon Alexa built-in.

  • Bronco 2021+
  • Edge 2021+
  • Escape 2023+
  • Expedition 2022+
  • Explorer 2024+
  • F-150 2021+
  • F-150 Lightning 2022+
  • F-250 2022+
  • Mach-E 2021+
  • Ranger 2023+
  • Transit 2022+

Manufacturers who offer Alexa skills include:
