Chevrolet has given more information about the 2021 Corvette.
The second model year brings some new equipment and color options, but the same base price.
The starting prices for a coupe and a convertible are already known, they are $59,995 and $67,495, respectively. Customers can place their orders for the mid-engine C8 now. Sales begin in late 2020.
The next Chevrolet Corvette is powered by a familiar potent 6.2-liter V8 engine in combination with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The now-standard features include Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Buckle to Drive function that requires buckling seatbelts before the car can be moved out of park.
Two new colors are added – Red Mist Tintcoat and Silver Flare Metallic, plus new grey and yellow interior color scheme and new stripe designs and colors.
Now customers can opt for magnetorheological dampers/shock absorbers as a standalone option, meaning, not as part of the Z51 performance package.
A magnetorheological damper is filled with magnetorheological fluid. A magnetic field controls the fluid, usually with the use an electromagnet. When electromagnet intensity rises, fluid viscosity in the damper increases too.
