2016 Chevy Corvette Features, Pricing & Specs
With upgraded powertrains, new design packages and contemporary features, the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06 models are back and better than ever. Perfect for a night on the town or a day on the race track, this year's Corvette was created to be the sportiest, sleekest and most capable version of the sports car to date. For more information about the performance, technology and design, continue reading our 2016 Corvette review below.
Of the new features in the Corvette Stingray, the optional design changes are perhaps the most extensive. Now available in two additional exterior colors (Racing Yellow Tintcoat and Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat) and with three all-new, color-themed design packages (Twilight Blue, Spice Red and Jet Black Suede), drivers can customize their 2016 Corvette in Evansville to reflect their own style.
While the Stingray's design packages have been enhanced for this year's version, the unparalleled engine and transmission carry over to provide yet another year of unbeatable performance. Equipped with a 6.2L V-8 engine rated at an SAE-certified 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque and the option of a seven-speed manual transmission or paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2016 Stingray provides an extremely capable powertrain. For even more power, a Z51 performance exhaust system boosts the powertrain to provide an exceptional 0-60 acceleration time of 3.7 seconds.
Deemed the most capable Corvette ever by 2016 Corvette reviews, this year's Z06 offers more speed, more options and more attention to detail. The Z06 relies upon an LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine to provide an exceptional 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque to drivers. Also available with manual and automatic transmission options, the Z06 has taken its spot as one of the most powerful production cars available in the USA. Additionally, 500 special C7.R Edition Z06 vehicles will be on the market in a package that includes adjustable components for unparalleled aerodynamic downforce, special Sport Cup tires for enhanced grip and lighter ceramic-matrix brake rotors for increased performance and handling.
Beyond the power, the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06 in Evansville are both available with a high-definition Performance Data Recorder, a spacious and luxurious interior and an intuitive condition based Driver Mode Selector.
Plus, with a convertible option, drivers can truly find exactly what they want in a 2016 Corvette Stingray or Z06. Test drive one of our Corvettes today and experience the incomparable performance for yourself.
