A new fan-made video shows the start-up animation that appears on the digital instrument cluster that comes standard on the 2020 Corvette Stingray, along with the different settings for the gauges.
We have already seen the start-up animation in the past (it leaked even before the 2020 Corvette Stingray debuted), but it’s nonetheless interesting to see the animation as it appears on the actual instrument cluster display. This video doesn’t just show the start-up animation – it also shows off the different modes for the gauges, which automatically change when you adjust the mid-engine sports car’s drive mode.
The 2020 Corvette Stingray’s drive mode selector includes Tour, Eco, Weather, Sport, and Track modes, in additional to the customizable Z Mode. As you will see in the video, the standard Tour mode displays a blue background gauge cluster with a tachometer in the center of the screen and the ground speed and selected gear in the middle of the tach. Moving the drive select dial into Sport will change the background color to red, move the selected gear number to the center of the dial and minimize the size of ground speed number. Sport mode also adds a tire pressure monitor menu in the lower left-hand corner, replacing oil temperature in the position.
The Track mode enables the biggest change on the cluster, though, adding a horizontally oriented RPM counter and making the selected gear even larger. This helps the driver ensure they are shifting at the right time and that they are in the right gear when they are on track and have less time to state at the dash.
If you’re wondering, yes, the 2020 Corvette Stingray is available with head-up display. While not shown in this video, the head-up display shows the tach, g-force meter, selected gear, and ground speed – though it’s not clear if the HUD display changes when you change the drive mode. Perhaps readers who have an early order on the 2020 Corvette Stingray or Convertible can let us know once they receive their cars early next year.
