For 2014 the C7 Corvette gauge and information display was a giant step in technology, features and usability. Two eight inch screens are utilized, the right being touch sensitive for user input. The two video display screens offered new levels of flexibility that the designers were quick to take advantage of.

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Heads Up DisplayClose
The heads up display, (HUD) first appeared in the 1999 Corvette and quickly became popular with owners. For the C7 it was upgraded to a color display with gauge graphics similar to the instrument display. For 2014 HUD is available as part of the 2LT and 3LT packages. The display changes depending on the instrument mode selected. Also available on an as-needed basis is audio information, navigation turn information, incoming calls and vehicle alerts.

The eight inch drivers screen is flanked by a conventional analog speedometer on the left and analog fuel (top) and coolant temperature gauges on the right. Above is the Tour mode, which is the default. Below is the sport mode setting, note the larger and more detailed tachometer. To the left of the tach is oil pressure and on the right is oil temperature although these can be differently configured for battery voltage, transmission fluid temperature or blank. The chrome ring on the tachometer perimeter is a nice touch, reminiscent of the classic sports car days and so well done you almost have to remind yourself that you are using a computer display.

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Track Mode TachometerClose
There are four instrument cluster display configurations to choose from: Tour, Sport, Track and Link to Drive with the style changing dependent on the selected theme. If Link to Drive is selected the cluster configuration will change to match the setting of the console mounted driver mode control. While it may seem complicated, getting the C7 instruments to do what you want is intuitive and easy to learn; are you listening BMW?
The "Driver Information Center", with the odd acronym of "DIC" is located in the center of the tachomter and offers an amazing amount of information and statistics. Control is via a switch cluster on the right side of the steering wheel. Available information includes the common items such as fuel economy (above) along with tire pressure data (below).

Although one might think of an accumulated engine revolutions counter as being available only recently, the 1953 thru 1957 Corvettes had the same capabilities with their mechanical tachometers. It was an odometer like function and was labeled "REV. THOUSANDS".
