The interior focuses on the driver, making every system intuitive and convenient so you can focus on the road.

The Corvette is an iconic American sports car. It has a racing pedigree that has captured interest and imagination for years, and Chevrolet continues to hone that image each year.

You can choose between several packages to deck out your Corvette, whether you’re a car purist or you want all the available tech. The Corvette also comes in a wide range of brilliant colors and racing stripes, so this is the perfect opportunity to create a unique sports car just for you.

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette features bright lighting that highlights its sculpted body and sleek edges. The edge-lit LED turn signals are set into black chrome housing for more dramatic visuals. The four-element taillamps tuck into the reverse reflector to give you crisp, even lighting and a smooth, classy look. While the Corvette is a performance-inspired beast, all trims also include convenience features like cruise control for the road. It also has USB ports and an auxiliary power outlet to keep all of your devices charged and connected.
The Corvette was designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, so the convertible options doesn’t require any additional reinforcements. The drop-top is fully electronic and can be opened or closed at speeds up to 30 MPH. The 2017 Corvette has an aluminum space frame that clocks in 100 pounds lighter than its predecessor. Not only does this light material offer better performance, it also enables tailored properties to be fitted. Tailored gauge, shape, and strength properties can be added with minimal weight, so the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette is actually much stiffer than the previous, heavier version. This stiff design allows the convertible top to be added without more modifications, and also proves its mettle on the track.
The Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder is available on any of the three Corvette models, and logs video and real-time performance data of your driving sessions. It automatically downloads the data onto an SD memory card so that you can analyze your technique afterwards and improve your skills. And if someone else is driving, you can turn Performance Data to Valet Mode to keep an eye on your car. The 2017 Corvette lineup also features an available Head-Up display that projects data onto your windshield, and a reconfigurable eight-inch LCD instrument cluster. It’s up to you how much information you want to see, and where you want it displayed. Your Corvette is also equipped with Chevrolet MyLink to keep you connected and entertained.
The Corvette was made for outstanding performance. From the driver-oriented Stingray to the world-class Z06, the Corvette’s lightweight aluminum space frame is packed with a 6.2L V8 engine. The engine is paired with a standard seven-speed manual transmission or an available eight-speed paddle-shift, so you can choose between the precision of choosing your own gear or the smooth control of an automatic. Don’t worry about track day, because the paddle-shift transmission offers a manual mode as well, where you can shift gears at will using the two steering wheel-mounted shifters. The 2017 Corvette also features five distinct drive modes which electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables. You can customize your drive to fit whatever kind of road you’re about to dominate.
The Stingray combines proven racing technology with sculpted, precise design. Every element of the Corvette serves a purpose. The light, stiff space frame offers optimal 50-50 weight distribution and impressive power-to-weight ratio. The LT1 6.2L V8 engine produces up to 460 horsepower and shoots from zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds. The electric power steering helps eliminate road shake and enhances overall responsiveness, while Magnetic Ride Technology reads the road to create perfect traction and enhance your control. The standard BREMBO brakes give you confident stopping power as well, so you remain in total control of your driving experience.
The Grand Sport is a reminiscence of classic Corvette racers. This model is based off the iconic original 1963 model, now with the power of the modern LT1 6.2L engine and the lightweight, race-bred chassis. The Grand Sport is slightly wider than the Stingray, built with sophisticated aerodynamics. It offers wider fenders to accommodate wider wheels and tires for confident, aggressive stance and grip. Coupled with dynamic downforce, new cooling elements, and fender inserts that optimize airflow, the 2017 Grand Sport is ready to race.
The Z06 was developed in tandem with the C7.R racecar. As such, they share a handful of features and components, including chassis architecture, engine technologies, and aerodynamics. The Z06 shares a carbon-fiber roof and hood, dry-sump oil system, titanium intake valves, and adjustable rear spoiler wickerbill with the racecar, among other things. It’s also 80mm wider than the Stingray model to push the envelope of performance. It’s the first 650-horsepower supercar available in both coupe and convertible configuration, and available with automatic or manual transmission. The rigid aluminum frame structure is designed to reduce drag and keep the Corvette firmly planted on the road for total control.
|0 – 60 mph||3.7|
|0 – 120 mph||12.9|
|LT1 6.2L Horsepower||460|
|LT1 6.2L Torque (lb-ft)||465|
|LT4 6.2L Horsepower||650|
|LT4 6.2L Torque (lb-ft)||650|
The interior is crafted to enhance your driving experience. The driver-oriented design offers intuitive instruments that keep you up to date without taking your eyes off the road. The seats, both the standard Grand Touring and the available Competition Seat, have a lightweight magnesium frame to give you maximum support and performance. For those who plan on spending lots of time practicing their hard corners at the track, the Competition seat is crafted with side bolsters for optimal support. The seats are designed to keep you firmly in place without interfering in your range of motion. The unique flat-bottom steering wheel also captures that racetrack feeling, and the premium ventilated Mulan or Napa leather seating surfaces enhance your comfort in the cockpit.
Despite being performance-inspired, the Corvette doesn’t need to be as sparse as a racecar. Each model comes with a standard nine-speaker Bose audio system that includes a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM Satellite Radio. The seats allow for eight-way power adjustment and are trimmed in premium leather for your comfort. There are controls for the audio, voice recognition, and Driver Information Center located on the steering wheel for easy access. The driver and passenger can set their own preferred temperature with standard dual-zone climate control. The 3LT trims include a custom leather-wrapped interior package as well as a sueded microfiber-wrapped upper interior package which wrapps the headliner, visors, A-pillar trim, and trim above the windshield and rear window.
