In addition, some new goodies
In addition to colors, the Chevrolet Corvette 2021 receives a few new standard technologies, including Apple CarPlay Wireless and Android Auto. The driving loop is now also standard, preventing the driver from leaving the park if the seat belt is not fastened for 20 seconds. Driver mode on-screen visualization and a new digital track speedometer join the list of features, and magnetic suspension for selective driving control is now available regardless of the Z51 performance package.
Again, the Corvette is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 developing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The engine is coupled to an eight-speed dual clutch that transmits power to the rear wheels. Its performance competing with exotic supercars is only one of the reasons why the Vette won the car of the year award 2020. Not only designed for performance, the Corvette is also an everyday sports car , offering reasonable cargo space, decent fuel economy and comfortable driving. So don’t be fooled by these warm paint colors or racing stripes – the Corvette can be your only car, as long as you never need to carry more than one passenger. . .
