Chevrolet introduced the current eight-generation Corvette in 2020, marking a major milestone in the car’s development: the big V8 now lives behind the seats, creating a domestic mid-engine sports car that follows the layout of countless European exotics.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
This year, the Corvette’s only functional change is one you probably won’t notice: the engine gets a new fuel pump and injectors.
Chevrolet offers the Corvette in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trim levels, all three of which are available in coupe or convertible body styles. A 6.2L V8 powers the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
1LT trims starts out with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, LED headlights, a 12.0-inch digital gauge cluster, power seats, 10-speaker audio, an 8.0-inch infotainment display, and dual-zone A/C. You also get passive keyless entry, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable steering column, rear parking sensors, and remote engine start.
2LT adds power-folding side mirrors, 14-speaker audio, navigation, HD front and rear cameras, a head-up display, and a performance data/video recorder. Also included are upgraded seats with lumbar, a rear camera mirror, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, and wireless phone charging.
3LT gains an extended leather interior, suede upper dash trim, and Nappa leather seating.
A Z51 performance package bundles a sport suspension, limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, an upgraded cooling system, and a performance exhaust.
Chevrolet’s fuel consumption estimates for the Corvette are 15.1/9.6 L/100 km (city/highway).
If you’re considering a Corvette, you’re probably aware of some of the high-profile cars it competes with: the Porsche 911, Acura NSX, Audi R8, and various exotics from Britain and Italy.
