The 12” wide all digital Vitual Pilot screen seen between the steering wheel is really nice and operates separate from the Info Screen in Nav view and the gauge sizes can be small or large. I think this is the direction we will see with the ME C8 as suggested by that interior reveal. The big difference is that rather than stick up so high on the dash, it is position lower and more discrete. I do think however that they may have eliminated the C7 conceiled cubby compartment.



It follows the flow of cell phone design - when the first came out they were big bricks & then year after year they got smaller. Now that trend has reversed & cell phones are getting bigger & bigger each year turning back into that oversized brick. These screens in cars just keep getting bigger & bigger adding more distraction to the driver. I got a kick out of the video of the kid in his new Tesla getting pulled over because of the TV sized screen in his dash. It's amazing how we were all able to drive for decades without huge info screens in/on our dashboards

JABCAT, I know what you mean about cell phones. My wife and I still like our ‘Old’ iPhone 5S as they are sized small by today’s standard. We will keep them as long as the IOS can be updated, now at iOS 12.1.2.

1) We know there is a rear facing camera in the upper rear glass area of the hood cover. It would look odd to put a camera in the middle of the glass by itself. A bar running down the middle would provide you with an easy cover to hide any wiring and create a nice subtle housing for such a camera.

3) Glass is heavy. Chevy would be foolish to not make the hood see thru, so you have to find a way to keep the weight down while also making it so people can see their engine. A center carbon fiber strip would allow you to see the engine from the left and right while adding strenght and dropping weight in the middle of the hood.

So...it is entirely possible that we have a split window design coming and perhaps even logical.
These are the best reasons yet for a split window. Would be very interesting to see if this is the case.

Could this split window thing only be a three facet glass rear window? Down the center would be a narrow flat section of glass, then the glass would bend and angle to the side. All glass, all see through. Just different angles to the one piece glass that gives the effect of a split window.

I'm hoping this split window thing isn't a thing. If it's not structural and just style skip it. Lol

Logically, to create the effect you’re talking about the glass would potentially need to be thicker in the curves. Thus causing it to weigh more than simply a slightly curved piece of glass all the way across. So with the idea in mind that they want to keep weight down, I doubt they would go with that as a design element. I think a split window is much more likely if there is a design element there.

Just an observation does it look like the steering wheel will be blocking the view of the screen hard to tell from pic but sure looks like it
