I can't tell you for sure what USB version the console connectors are, but the usual reason for wanting to know is to figure out if the ports can supply the higher current allowed by USB 3.0. Based on how fast my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S7) charges when it's plugged into the console connectors (even though it's turned on and showing Google Maps via Android Auto) I'd say that the power delivery is considerably better than USB 2.0.I was wondering if anybody happen to know what version of USB is used in the 2018 Bolt. I can’t find it in the manual, or online anywhere. Maybe I’m blind. Do you happen to know if it is 2.0 or 3.0 or something else?

I've also encountered at work a Dell laptop with USB 3.0 but black ports. I'm guessing it for style purposes.Manufacturers are recommended to distinguish USB 3.0 connectors from their USB 2.0 counterparts by blue color-coding of the Standard-A receptacles and plugs, and by the initials SS
