“Alexa What Car Should I Buy?”

Edmunds.com announced a new Amazon Alexa Skill for voice-enabled access to Edmunds’ expert automotive content.

Owners of Amazon Echo devices can say

“Alexa, ask Edmunds for

Review, pros and cons, driving characteristics, safety, powertrain, warranty, fuel efficiency, seating capacity, length, width, height, price, cost, cargo capacity, headroom, curb weight, towing capacity or wheelbase


Year Make and Model.”

Going beyond the research phase, the Edmunds Alexa Skill provides the MSRP for any vehicle and gives information on local inventory and current lease deals for shoppers ready to buy. Alexa also makes it easy for car owners to keep track of their current vehicle, including recall information and maintenance schedules. Car owners can ask Alexa what their car is worth and immediately learn the real-time Edmunds True Market Value for their car, or ask when their next oil change is due.

Edmunds’ Alexa Skill will work with any Alexa-enabled device including Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablets for multiple touchpoints throughout the home. The English-only skill is free and available now. To enable, go to the “skills” section of the Alexa app, search for Edmunds and click “enable,” or simply say, “Alexa, enable Edmunds” to any Alexa-enabled device.
