This has been done/attempted before. There's mounts that need to be fabricated, wiring harnesses to change and settings to reconfigure on your '16. Not sure everything works 100% either, search around on the forum, there's a few threads on the subject.
If you want plug-n-play solution, you'll need to source a UAQ or UAS head unit and a new media hub w/the associated wiring adapter.

Easier to use a 2018+ 4th gen 8.4. They have Carplay.
