Siri, the world famous virtual assistant unleashed by Apple for iOS on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, will be fully integrated into a couple of new cars from General Motors that will be launched some time in early 2013. To be more specific, GM plans to include Siri on its upcoming Chevrolet Spark and Chevrolet Sonic cars with the new "Eyes Free" feature which was first announced by Apple back at this year's WWDC. With Siri in place, the drivers of these upcoming GM vehicles will be able to perform certain tasks like sending text messages and launching apps without having to pick up their devices.
