Poll: Which Infotainment Screen Do You Like More – Chevy Silverado EV Or GMC Sierra EV?33
General Motors is stepping up its EV game with several new battery-powered models, including all-electric iterations of its popular Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. Notably, the Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV offer completely different layouts for their respective infotainment systems, and now, we want to know – which do you like more?
In terms of layout, the infotainment screen in the Chevy Silverado EV is horizontally oriented, with the central screen in the RST First Edition model positioned in such a way as to make it appear as though it is almost an extension of the digital gauge cluster behind the steering wheel. The primary infotainment screen in the Silverado EV is also slightly angled towards the driver, while a round knob is placed in the upper left-hand corner of the screen directly adjacent to the digital gauge cluster. Check out GM Authority’s tour of the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV interior for more information.
By contrast, the infotainment screen in the GMC Sierra EV is vertically oriented, occupying the entirety of the center stack in a tablet-like layout. Near the bottom the screen we find a rounded dial, while a sequence of hard buttons line the lowest edge of the screen. This vertical tablet-style center screen is joined by a horizontal digital gauge layout behind the steering wheel, creating a series of box-like, squared-off 90-degree angles.
As a reminder, both the Chevy Silverado EV and GMC Sierra EV are equipped with GM Ultium batteries and GM Ultium Drive motor technology, with output rated at 754 horsepower and 785 pound-feet of torque for the range-toppers in each respective model line (Chevy Silverado EV RST First Edition, GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1). Both models ride on the GM BT1 platform, and both are set for production at the GM Factory Zero plant in Michigan.
So then, we want to know – which infotainment screen do you like more? Do you like the Chevy Silverado EV’s horizontal layout, or do you prefer the vertical orientation of the GMC Sierra EV?

Screen from the 2003 Silverado. I don’t really intend to be watching TV when I’m cruising through zions National park
Definitely Silverado, I’m not a big fan of portrait screens
Vertical screens should go away quickly.
I like the Silverado approach better.
More importantly, each model retains a column mounted shifter and dual cup holders in the console.
Screenwise, I like the Chevy better. It has a more symmetry with the overall flow of the rest of the dashboard. Since the Chevy is an RST and the GMC is a Denali I’d like to see a High Country interior. Both screens would likely be the same but would the High Country have the better looking wood and chrome trim like the Denali?
Except for the screens, both dash designs look very dated… as if they came out of the 70’s.
Classic marketing strategy. Make things look retro to win over the people who remember that era with nostalgia and have the money to buy it. They’ll soon transition to an 80s-vibe, like the Hyundai Ioniq.
You got to be kidding:) You must have been born last week then
Definitely the Silverado. I like things to not appear as slap add-ons. It’s a shame as the rest of the GMC looks awesome 👌
It’s a trick question. Neither exist. GM EVs are vaporware… from a guy waiting for a Lyriq.
Where’s the option for neither? Can’t wait for this fad to pass. There’s just nothing like a well integrated, smooth flowing screen design that doesn’t scream hey, look at me!
Silverado center console should be in all EV’s. Dislike the GMC, GMC should be like Cadillac EV console.
It’s so sad people are still going on about fads, and environment killing batteries and towing and charging, when they haven’t even a clue on what it all means. Let’s start off with a EV motor weighing 100lbs and a engine with transmission weighs 600-800 lbs…. wonder where all that metal comes from?? The steel fairy?? So stop posting your crap and stay on your closed minded sights to complain to eachother.
I wish we would just get over this EV electric crap, they are not going to be relevent anyway. There is NO way in Hell that the majority of people are going to buy these. Also they can try to phase out gas and diesel but it won’t work because if they quit tomorrow people will still be driving there gas and diesel cars and trucks 50 years from now.
Chevy. The Sierras interior kills it for me.
Definitely the Chevy.
What about the cast iron and aluminum fairies?
I picked the GMC only because the silverado is set up for driver only. Passenger can interface with GMC easier
Silverado is definitely cleaner looking. Lays in the contour of the dash. The table stuck on the dash look needs to go.
100 lb motor and average 1000 lbs battery from the Duracell bunny.
Tesla has killed the “vertical tablet” look for me.
I like the in dash screen on the Silverado, not the faux tablet look on the other
Yup and and 200lbs of gas that needs to be pulled from the ground by electricity, refined by electricity and transported by gas and pumped by electricity to your tank. Just so you can rinse and repeat weekly or every other week. Still want to argue just how bad batteries are compared to gas?? Easy to say mining is bad but don’t compare ICE vehicles. Just makes people look stupid
Stupid on both sides of the fence. Does electricity mine the materials to make a battery? Does electricity transport those materials? Does electricity transport the batteries? Does electricity make electricity to charge the batteries? I personally don’t care what you drive and you should do the same. I feel it is way to early in the ev game to tell what the long term effects to the environment are going to be just as when the first ice vehicle came out, only time will tell and I doubt many of us will be around to say I told you so no matter what that is.
One thing I have not seen on GMA is the STANDARD SCREENS on the most economical trims of the future EVs that have a choice of dashboards, such as the supposedly upcoming Chevy Blazer EV and Equinox EV..
I’d love to have a look an the more ‘minimalist’ (current buzzword) screens…I have no need for Stock Broker’s Video Panels, and there is much MORE than a bit of a safety issue here in that Drivers should spend most of their time ACTUALLY LOOKING OUT THE WINDSHIELD rather than fiddling with gadgets while driving.
Bill: Well said. Thank you. All these screens certainly don’t make our roads more safe! Between the cell phones, screens and many other distractions just from driving, our roads are becoming more scary by the day. Even Volvo (Mr safety nanny of the world) has begun to put simple things within the screen where you now need to tap the screen several times just to make a change. But I think Tesla is still the biggest offender of all.
I don’t like the vertical, and I hate that there are less buttons in the Sierra. Putting so much behind the screen worries me. So the Silverado. But I love the exterior Sierra worlds more.
