When you think about a car engineered for performance, it’s tough to think of a car that meets the description as well as the Corvette. The 2017 Chevy Corvette Stingray is offered as a coupe or convertible model, with a wide range of exciting features to explore. But regardless of trim level or feature options, one thing always comes standard: an exhilarating driving experience. Take one look at the Corvette and you’ll immediately notice its similarities to Corvette models of the past, with its sleek and slender exterior design. But its design also serves a function, and that is top level performance at every turn. Wherever you look, the Corvette Stingray has been designed and engineered to perfect a blend of sporty style and driving dynamics.
It all starts under the hood with the 2017 Corvette Stingray, which is powered by the LT1 engine. This engine is a 6.2-liter V8 that puts you in control of up to 460 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers are great, but what does that mean for your experience as the driver? Well, it means you’ll be driving a vehicle that can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
When you’re driving the Corvette Stingray, you’ll want to keep your eyes on both the road and your vehicle’s performance. Helping you do that is an available Head-Up Display. The Display projects key information right onto the windshield without blocking your line of sight. Quickly determine your speed, rpm and more while staying focused on what’s ahead.
Aluminum Space Frame
The Stingray’s aluminum space frame is designed to be both lightweight and strong. In fact, it is 100 pounds lighter than its predecessor, which means all that engine power can be put to further use. But, the aluminum space frame is also 57% stiffer than the previous generation Corvette, retaining its strength and shape.
