The 2023 Chevy Colorado truck has everyone awe-struck with its outstanding features, affordable prices, and fresh new interiors. The highlight of the automobile is its virtual button for the light switch, shown on the infotainment screen. As the headlight switch has gone automatic now, you don’t have to switch it on and off repeatedly, except in the windy seasons. Simply open the menu on the 11.3 inches touchscreen display, and switch it on and off manually rather than flipping on a physical button.
What Happens if the System Fails?
Nick Katcherian, chief engineer of the new Colorado vehicle, in an interview with Road & Track, expressed how many drivers might be skeptical about the infotainment system failures or bugs. If such a scenario happens, they will lose the ability to control the light switch. However, Katcherian has convinced the audience that their team has already encountered all the possible bugs in the system. The legal necessity to make the light switch always functional means the light control module loads on top of the remnant of the infotainment system. Soon, these software-based light switches can help add more significance to automobiles while selling them or work as optional add-ons.
No Light Switch Means More Space
Katcherian discovered when you switch on your wipers in the rain, the light comes on too, and that’s where the idea to save space by removing the light switch was generated. With the virtual headlight switch trend catching on, the engineer says they see an opportunity to virtualize many more buttons in the future.If you think about it, this digital light switch offers more flexibility regarding what and how much one can update by deeply diving into this technological arena. And now, all you need to do is wait and see how much this virtual light switch feature turns out on the road.
The Best Cars from the Fast and Furious Movie Franchise
The Fast and The Furious movie franchise is now one of the biggest in Hollywood. There have been nine ‘Fast and Furious’ movies, with each bringing edge-of-your-seat driving stunts to our screens. Each film has tons of cars to choose from, and these are the best from the Fast and Furious movie franchise.
1994 Toyota Supra Mk IV
The first car we really get to know Brian O’Conner in is the 1994 Toyota Supra Mk IV. It becomes a rags to riches story for the car, which begins as a rusted model from a scrap dealer. Once it has been given the street racing makeover, the Supra becomes an instant hit. At the end of Dom and Brian’s iconic race in the first movie, we see Dom riding off into the sunset in this Supra as Brian throws him the keys to get away.
1970 Dodge Charger
One car which has earned cult status in the movies is the 1970s Dodge Charger driven by Dom Toretto. He struggles to tame this beast in the beginning, possibly because it puts out 900bhp, but now it’s basically the hero’s main ride. The car has appeared in four of the eight main ‘Fast and Furious’ movies and is known for doing a quarter-mile drag in under nine seconds.
1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34
Another of Brian’s most iconic cars is the 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34. This car debuts in ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’ and is used in the scene where Brian famously jumps a bridge. The Nissan Skyline is one of the most iconic street racing cars in the world, and the Fast and Furious franchise made sure to pay homage to it in style.
Each of these cars makes you want to put the pedal to the metal and life your life one quarter-mile at a time. They are fast, furious, and the most memorable cars from the famous movie franchise.
