Chevrolet today announced pricing and new features for the 2021 version of its iconic Corvette with its revolutionary mid-engine design.
The performance brand of Detroit’s General Motors Co. says it will hold the line on pricing in 2021 with an MSRP starting at $59,995 for the coupe and $67,495 for the convertible, including destination charge.
New for the 2021 Corvette: Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension is available, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto, driver mode on-screen visualization, and a track digital tachometer.
There’s also Buckle to Drive, a safety technology that can prevent the driver from shifting the vehicle out of park if the driver’s seat belt is not buckled for up to 20 seconds.
New exterior and interior color options include:
- Red Mist Metallic tint coat exterior.
- Silver Flare Metallic exterior.
- Sky Cool Gray/Yellow Strike interior.
- Full-Length Dual Racing Stripe Package colors: Blue, Orange, Red, and Yellow.
- Stinger Stripes in three colors: Carbon Flash/Edge Red, Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow, and Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver.
The 2021 Corvette maintains the 6.2-liter LT2 V-8 powerplant with direct injection, variable valve timing, and active fuel management. It is paired with Chevrolet’s eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
“Our mission was to develop a new sports car, combining the successful attributes of Corvette with the performance and driving experience of mid-engine supercars,” says Tadge Juechter, executive chief engineer on Corvette. “We are thrilled with the enthusiasm the mid-engine Corvette brought following its launch, and are keeping it fresh with new content for the 2021 model.”
