(Newser) – Soon, your car may be able to fumblingly attempt to respond to your requests in a snarky robotic voice, too. GM announced today that it will be integrating Siri into three of its new models—the Chevy Spark, the Sonic LTZ, and the RS. The cars will be able to connect to any iPhone running iOS 6 using Bluetooth, and hook Siri up with the car's MyLink infotainment system, FastCompany reports.

Once connected, drivers will be able to make calls, send messages, and of course, control their music via voice command. They can also try asking Siri questions, though this may induce road rage. Several other car companies have also announced Siri integration, but GM's should be the first on the market. (Read more iPhone stories.)
