The very name of the model Corvette has a magic in it that every Chevrolet user will admit. The model has earned that trust with its consistence delivery of powerful performance, a loving ride and its reasonably priced trims, that come as the popular Stingray, the gorgeous Grand Sport, the zippy Z06, and the new head turning ZR1 models. Chevrolet has made it available both as luxury coupe and stylish convertible body styles. As you climb up the ladder, the performance in the 2019 Chevrolet soars higher.
It was at the Decatur Chevrolet dealer showroom, that we first got the opportunity to explore the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. In the impressive showroom ambience, the 2019 edition of Chevrolet Corvette was lying quite low-slung and modestly wide. When we saw the C7 trim of the 2019 Corvette, our eyes could not skip its appearance that was decked with spoilers, scoops and ducts to add to its stunningly sinister appearance, while the new ZR1 models on the other side looked like a supercar that will turn every head around while whizz passing them.
Performance is the calling of every Chevrolet Corvette model. Starting from the base model Stingray to the topmost Grand Sport, you get a minimum of 455-horsepower that you can get from a 6.2-liter V-8 engine which can push the car to a 0-60 mph in as low a time as 3.6 seconds. If you are still greedy about its performance, get the optional exhaust to the make the same engine increase its horsepower to 460 and 650 pound-feet of torque. If you drive the new ZR1 the performance gets even crazier. Powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 it returns you a whopping 755 of hp and 715 lb-ft of torque. With the ZTK package on board, the ZR1 trim does wonder on road. Thanks to the big rear wings and the new stiffer suspension getting it at a speed of 212 mph, putting up the numbers higher than its rival supercar models. Irrespective of the engine you choose, each 2019 Corvette will offer you either a 7-speed manual transmission that comes with a downshift feature that matches the rev best. But if you are looking for a quicker shift you can opt for the 8-speed automatic transmission with swift paddle shifters.
When the base Corvette Stingray can handle the speed so well, with a Z51 package the trims of Corvette will naturally rise higher in maneuverability, cornering and braking. With the newly stiffened suspension, and upgraded brakes, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette receives best performance tweaks. Then comes the aerodynamics that adds an even better way of handling and performance. The limited-slip differential on the other hand are now electronically controlled in order to improve the performance level while enhancing its endurance limit.
With three engine options and performance packages, distributed evenly among the four trim models, the level of performance can be chosen according to your preferences whenever you decide to go for the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. Our test drive with the 2019 Corvette at the Decatur Chevrolet will always remind us of the earth-shattering sense of power, the tremendous grip, its agile handling and responsive steering that never allowed any imperfection of the wild, untamed roads to climb up the cabin.
