LAS VEGAS (WKZO) -- General Motors is getting ready to launch the Chevrolet AppShop for select 2015 models in the U.S. and Canada in summer 2014.

The automaker unveiled the feature at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Sunday.  Every vehicle with the AppShop will come with OnStar 4G LTE hardware with data plans available at an extra charge.

GM executives say the new feature should help drivers keep their smartphones in their pockets while behind the wheel, and will feature apps to connect them to music, news, weather, travel information and more.
