Does The 2019 Silverado’s Dash Resemble A Porg?
Am I The Only One Seeing This?by Mark McNabb, on
I might just have an overactive imagination, but I swear I see a Porg in the center console of the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Porg is a mystical bird-like creature from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the similarities are just uncanny – especially with the Silverado’s optional brown leather dash treatment. The Porg’s cute little head and pudgy round body have the same shape as the Chevy’s 8.0-inch MyLink screen, HVAC controls, toggle switches, and connectivity ports.
Of course, I’m sure Chevy’s interior designer didn’t glean inspiration from the Porg. In fact, he likely takes serious offense to my observation considering the years he’s spent sculpting and perfecting his vision, and only then to fight for its approval against endless committee meetings and reviews.
Still, It’s going to take me a while for this coincidence to escape my mind. Surely I’m not the only one. Are you seeing this? Tell me in the comments.
