It's all a scam.

YUP and then they can just charge you to "unlock" the functionality because it is software disabled and you didnt buy the "DLC" .....erm tech package/option for it.

COST REDUCTION!

My first car (1948 Chevrolet) had a speedometer, a fuel gauge, a temperature gauge and an amp meter. The AM radio had two knobs, one to turn it on and off and the other to tune into one of the three stations available (on a clear night).

I got along just fine - lots of time to pay attention to DRIVING the damn car!

Nothing is stopping you from going back to one of those. Well, except all 1983 Chevys have probably (and hopefully!) been destroyed by this point LOL.
