I guess Im the only against the new steering wheels with 20+ buttons. I for one HATE my 2013 Ford taurus steering wheel. Its got to much crap on it and it wasnt as easy to use simple functions like cruise control and radio functions like my 2010 ford taurus was. We just bought a brand new grand cherokee and didnt want a 2014 due to the steering wheel and all of the extra crap on it.

Only a matter of time before that 8" screen is in the middle of your steering wheel.

Its a 7" screen, actually, and there are a lot of technical issues getting it into the steering hub. There are some cars (the last Citroen I drove) that the central hub doesn't rotate when you turn the wheel. That brings possibilities.

The big thing is thats moving the wrong direction, putting something further from the windshield. Info will be moving the other way, closer to, or onto the windshield glass with HUDs and augmented reality. AR takes a lot of processor power and space to run, though, but is very cool.

Similar, but much nicer. The clusters in the Dart, and Grand Cherokee are far more plain when you see them in person. The display is just kind of cut into the middle.
