About 2013 Corvette C7

Although the 2012 model has yet to hit the showrooms, General Motors is already prepping up the next generation 2013 Chevrolet Corvette C7. There are lots of speculations as to the features or changes incorporated here. Production for the 2013 Corvette C7 model is said to begin in April 2012 and has tons of promise for its loyal consumers. To find out what you can expect, you can get more details from the review below.

One thing that is confirmed with the 2013 Corvette C7 is that it will be equipped with the Stingray concept. This premium sporty and performance car could be the last of the traditional and old-style Corvettes that GM introduced into the market a long time ago. However, don’t expect it to be of soft-pedal performance either. There is a bunch of strategic redesign and changes here that is believed to be highly comparable to the C6.

The 2013 Corvette C7 will retain the 4-wheel independent suspension featured in the C6 along with an aluminum unequal-length A arms for each corner. The manufacturer has also incorporated a new electric-motor steering assist to deliver more fuel economy as compared to traditional hydraulic booster. What you can expect with this model is the use of four-wheel ABS disc brake, although you can expect it to be somewhat enlarged. Other notable features incorporated in this new vehicle includes the Magnetic Selective Ride Control absorber, Active Handling stability system, and the Launch Control, which was introduced in the 2010 Corvette model.

The interior for the 2013 Corvette C7 will also aim to improve on the faults of the C6 wherein it will introduce cabin upgrade. You can also expect changes in the trim, door panels, and seating. All the other comfort and convenient features of the C6 will be carried over to this model but you can get an optional navigation system as an added feature.

Moving over to the vehicle performance, the 2013 Corvette C7 will offer 3 engine options. The first option is a 6.2-liter V8 engine with up to 460 horsepower and 460 lb-ft torque. The second option is a 7.0-liter V8 engine with up to 570 horsepower and 525 lb-ft torque. And lastly, you can get the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine with up to 700 horsepower and 630 lb-ft torque. You can also get a couple transmission choices, which is the six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
