Alpine Electronics said it is now shipping two new large screen 9-inch truck radios under its Restyle line.
The new navigation models are the X009-RAM for select Ram trucks and the X009-TND for the Toyota Tundra. Both are designed for plug and play interface with the trucks using a harness if needed and a two way data module.
Each has a vehicle specific dash kit that matches the color, finish and shape of the factory dash. The kits include back-lit hard keys which replace the factory radio knobs and match the instrument cluster lighting.
The X009-RAM is compatible with select 2013-up Ram trucks (not compatible with models that have the factory 8.4-inch screen). The X009-TND is compatible with 2007-2013 Toyota Tundra trucks.
The new models join the three currently available X009 systems: X009-FD1, for select Ford F-150 trucks with the base radio system; X009-GM, for lower dash radio styles on select 2007-2013 GM trucks and 2007-2014 GM SUVs; and X009-U, for custom installations.
Coming this spring are models for 2007-2013 GM full size trucks with upper dash radio (X009-GM2), select 2013-2014 Ford F-150 trucks with MyFord 4.2-inch screen (X009-FD2) and 2011-up Jeep Wrangler (X009-WRA).
In total, the Alpine Restyle truck and SUV dash systems will be compatible with over eight million vehicles.
An iDatalink Maestro module is included with the X009 that can show vehicle information (battery voltage display, check engine codes, etc). The module also retains factory features such as steering wheel controls and premium audio amplifier integration.
The X009-RAM and X009-TND include HD Radio, Pandora control and SiriusXM compatibility. They have HDMI input, Bluetooth and work with Alpine’s TuneIt app for sound tuning and Facebook alerts.
They are available at $3,400 for the X009-RAM and $3,300 for the X009-TND.
