Digital speedometer or lack there of

Why doesn't my 16 have a digital speedometer in the instrument cluster? Every new vehicle has it except ford super duty ( don't quote me on that). Dodge and Chevy and trucks have them ford cars and SUVs have them why don't we. Anyone know of a way to turn it on if it is there?

You do, it's just displayed as an analog gauge

Install Torque Pro in an android tablet and select the speedometer pid. It's also much more accurate than the instrument cluster...

There actually is one. If you have the info center in the cluster, you can enter test mode and scroll to it. If I remember right, you hold the down arrow on the steering wheel control as you turn on the key. Once it shows test mode, you can let go of the button and start the truck. Problem is, it would be a pain as you have to do this every time you drive the truck to see it. ..... but there is one.

I like the digital speedo in my other cars too... But it isn't one of my big gripes.

When I run Waze, which I do often, it has a GPS Speedometer on it...
