I just finished installing an Kenwood dnx5120 in my 2013. I am pretty sure that there aren't any outputs in the back of the stock unit but I can check it later. Best thing you can do is buy an aftermarket head unit first bc the speakers aren't terrible they r just underpowered. As far as the install it is super simple, either use a small flat head screw driver or your fingernail and pull off the dash trim starting at the bottom and working up. There are 4 screws that hold the stock unit in. Once those r removed unclip the harnesses and wire the harness adapter to the new unit. Attach new head unit to the new dash kit and put it back together. It gets a little more complicated if u want to keep the steering wheel controls and Bluetooth. I bought everything from crutchfield.com best products and best prices.

Im pretty sure if you are buying your head unit soon or at least in December you get the wire harness for free. I just bought a new one last week and I got the installing kit and wire harness for free. Cant go wrong with crutchfield.

Those links were both the same. No difference between those two harnesses

stock unit has navigation or not.
