As the classic American sports car, the Corvette is power and style personified. It is a great performance value that matches cars costing twice as much. A 6.2L and 7.0L V-8 (Z06 only) is coupled to 6-speed manual or paddle-shift automatic (N/A on Z06). The Z06 has uprated brakes, larger wheels, run-flat tires, and lighter magnesium chassis components. Three suspension calibrations and Active Handling vehicle dynamics control are available.

What Changed:

The Corvette receives an all-new LS3 6.2L V-8 engine rated at 430 hp and 424 lb-ft of torque. An optional dual mode exhaust upgrade improves the output by 6 hp and 4 lb-ft of torque. The manual transmission has been reworked to improve shift effort. The automatic has improved shift times with the paddle shifter. The appearance is virtually unchanged with the exception of some new exterior and interior color choices.
