The 2016 Corvette has changed the game. For those shaking their heads, claiming there wasn’t much improvement to be made from 2014 and 2015, be prepared to be mistaken.
The 2016 Corvette is available to drivers in both coupe and convertible in the base Stingray, Stingray Z51 or Z06 trim style. The coupe offers drivers unmatched style, power, and usability. With an impressive 15 cubic-foot trunk, stashing a change of clothes to go from work to play won’t be a problem. Drivers now have more room to pack their luggage, golf clubs and even the groceries.
The Stingray trims have 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels, Brembo brakes and are powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that drives the rear wheels. They come standard with seven-speed manual transmissions but drivers can opt for an eight-speed automatic. Regardless of which one you select, both transmissions feature a launch control mode.
The 2016 Corvette engine has also been designed to present drivers with instantaneous adaptable driving modes when needed. If you encounter poor weather, there is no reason to worry. A simple switch of a dial puts the 2016 Corvette in weather mode. Or perhaps you’re spending the weekend at an open autocross event and want to open her up on the track, there’s a mode for that too. In fact, there are five different modes including weather, eco, tour, sport and track.
Don’t be fooled, though. The Corvette’s evolution hasn’t been restricted to just under-the-hood improvements. Inside the 2016 Corvette several changes are capturing the hearts of driver enthusiasts. Edmunds.com 2016 Corvette review says that thanks to the center stack and wraparound door panels, drivers feel as though their operating a fighter jet.
The “fighter jet cockpit” consists of several luxurious features including a leather wrapped steering wheel, hands-free Apple CarPlay and in advanced models front-view parking cameras and driver memory settings.
Chevrolet is blessing the roads with the new 2016 Corvettes at prices that are shocking everyone. Even Edmunds.com 2016 Corvette review claims that “Calling it a world-class bargain is no longer faint praise; it’s genuinely hard to believe that you can get this much car for what Chevy’s charging.”
As the packages increase so do the luxuries and the price, but what’s included in the base Stingray is more than enough to impress.
