Looks good except for the busy & overdone wheel. Chevy has had a problem with steering wheels throughout the modern era. Chevy, repeat after me, Simple is Better.

My wife will like that climate control setup. More buttons for her to play with than on my C7 on the passenger (her) side. She felt deprived.

Has anyone figured out what the 3 buttons in front of the rotary dial are for?

Do you think you pull up on the Drive button or push down? Looks like Manual mode is a push.

The center one looks like it's for the optional front end lift system. The other two might pop the front and rear decklids?

That steering wheel is grotesque. Not to mention the Honda Odyssey push button gear selector.

I love it... the steering wheel is straight out of a C4 and will make driving and using the paddles and seeing the large gauge screen very easy.

Can anyone tell what the buttons just ahead of the rotary controller thing are? Also, what's it say on the chrome strip on top of the rotary control palm rest?

To echo what some others said, the steering wheel is strange but overall I think itís a huge step up. Has the cockpit feel, if more G5 than F22!

Steering wheel is hideous. Other than that I like it

Ah yes. Mr. Zerv02. And, btw, that established his credentials in predicting things... such as the $169K MSRP. Good times...

Curious... why is there a M manual mode? I thought when you hit the paddles it goes into manual mode? Or, will that revert to auto if you stop using the paddles whereas the M manual mode stays in manual permanently?

If you zoom in all the way I see the first one is traction control. The other ones idk.

Just guessing but the C7 has an M mode selection for the paddles as well.

It's like Lamborghini and McLaren they always had it down there. We won't use it much anyways since it's dual clutch only.

Seems like a logical place as many cars with a foot activated parking brake have the release over there.
