No, the new Chevrolet Corvette is not called as usual “Corvette,” but rather the “New Corvette.” To us, this nickname is totally acceptable as everything it in it is absolutely brand new. There is a new design, a new powertrain, and new interior.
Now we have the official specifications announced by Chevrolet itself.
The vehicle hits a total of 460 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4,600 rpm. The Z51 performance package includes Magnetic Ride Control and Performance Traction.
