Hard buttons are always quicker than infotainment based soft buttons. I recently rented a RAM 1500 Limited and it was annoying as hell to use that big beautiful screen for simple shit like heated or ventilated seats. It takes too long to get to some commonly used features.

Everyone is thinking this car is a bargain, but Chevy has adopted the sales model of the European cars already with the C7. Low base price, but ridiculous option prices, and good luck finding a base model for the first couple of years. You'll see more with $80K+ pricetags than $60K pricetags.

He is simply guessing. At ~$60k, the base C8 is not too far off from the base C7 at ~$56k. $15k for Z51, Magride, PDR and Comp. seats? Not hardly. Again, comparing the prices to a C7, $15k on a base Stingray will put you into a well equipped Grand Sport or perhaps even a stripped down Z06 if you can find a deal.

GM nailed it with the price point. It isn't too far off from the current model and that was the biggest concern among the faithful.

There is no way that the Vette gets a manual. I don't think there is another mid-engine car making 500hp with a manual. No way some company is going to make one from scratch and be able to keep the price low enough to put into a $60k car.
