In recent years, I’ve noted an increasing number of “Moon and Tunes” and “Sun and Sound” option packages, especially from Detroit. These usually include a sunroof and an optional audio system, perhaps with a CD changer or satellite radio also tossed into the mix, at a discounted package price.
I say “usually” because in the Chevrolet TrailBlazer you can substitute a ceiling-mounted entertainment system for the sunroof–they cannot be ordered together–and thus get a “Sun, Sound, and Entertainment” package sans sun.
This oddity aside, is there something about a sunroof that makes it a natural fit for superior audio? When these are available separately, do people tend to order both anyway?
Or do “Moon and Tunes” and “Sun and Sound” simply have a nice ring to them?
My guess: it’s just a matter of time before automakers rediscover that “show” rhymes with “go.”
