Apple has introduced a 'new instrument cluster experience' for CarPlay in iOS 17.4 beta 4. On supported vehicles, the feature will allow instrument clusters to display information about upcoming maneuvers and allow users to swap display types between the main and instrument cluster screen.

Apple Maps and CarPlay in vehicle instrument clusters
In iOS 17.4, with supported CarPlay vehicles, Apple Maps will present a new instrument cluster experience with information about upcoming maneuvers. Users will be able to swap the desired display type between the main and instrument cluster screen by tapping the map configuration button on the upper right of the Maps main screen. (122833170)

This enhancement should benefit users with vehicles that support multi-display CarPlay such as Volvo, BMW, and Polestar, but it appears unrelated to the 'next generation of CarPlay' that is coming this year.

Next generation of CarPlay
This next generation of CarPlay is the ultimate iPhone experience for the car. It provides content for all the driver's screens including the instrument cluster. This ensures a cohesive design experience that is the very best of your car and your iPhone — with designs for each automaker that express your vehicle's character and brand. Vehicle functions like radio and temperature controls are handled right from CarPlay. And personalization options ranging from widgets to selecting curated gauge cluster designs make it unique to the driver.
