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.

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.
