Watch the 2013 Cadillac XTS's Reconfigurable Instrument Cluster in Action

Someone alert the hipsters; there is a new fad going around the auto industry and it’s called reconfigurable instrument clusters.

Just last month, BMW announced that it will offer a customizable digital instrument display on the 2013 model year 5-Series and facelifted 7-Series, while recent spy photos prove that the next Mercedes-Benz S-Class will also have this future.

For once, Cadillac is not trailing behind its rivals in features introducing an available Reconfigurable Gauge Cluster on its new top sedan model, the 2013 XTS that just went on sale in the States.

The 12.3-inch (312 mm) color display allows the driver to select from four different themes, ranging from minimal to extensive information. You can watch it in action in the video that follows right past the break.

    You’ve got to be kidding right? These dashboards are plug and play. One goes out and you literally just unmount and unplug the old one, plug in the new, then remount.

    Way easier for a modern 19 year-old than playing with speedometer cables and speed cups.

    But keep trying.

    They look SO much better than the alternative gauge-set Cadillac is pushing now. You may have seen the one that looks like they grabbed it out of the 1st generation Saturn parts bin.

    This gauge-set should come standard in every trim level. Caddy sales would be way up.
