Vehicles with cellular data

So, I just got a new Toyota.  Uses the AT&T network.  I just paid $200 for their unlimited prepaid unlimited service.  Is there any way to find out information on the modems Toyota uses?  What bands are supported, do they support CA, support 5G, etc?

Also, another note of discussion, with the 3G shutdowns from AT&T, VZW, Sprint and even the LTE shutdown on Sprint, a lot of vehicles will no longer be connected.  Do we know if car manufactures are going to have the option to upgrade those modems to LTE/5G?

My 2016 Dodge Charger uses Sprint 3G for connectivity. I've received emails from Dodge about converting it to T-Mobile but honestly I haven't looked into it much yet. It's nice being able to track my car on GPS and lock/unlock/remote start from my phone but honestly I hardly ever used it that way. I'm also pretty sure my car doesn't offer a Hotspot like my truck does. Luckily they switched to AT&T later on, my 2018 Ram truck uses AT&T LTE.
