Riding in the 2012 Chevy Corvette – The Return of a Legend

The Chevy name and brand is synonymous with the Corvette. The 2012 Corvette “C6” range includes some slight changes to the 2011 Corvette. The Corvette still sports a base Corvette model as well as a Z06 and a high performance ZR6 model. The Corvette now sports a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine or a newly improved 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine which is built specifically for racing performance alongside either an automatic transmission, or manual transmission.

The Corvette is an iconic sports car and the 2012 range is no exception. The 2012 model was revised to improve the overall performance from the 2011 range. While the interior remains mostly unchanged from the 2011, the largest improvements in the Corvette range have come in terms of performance and the exterior. Some changes include:

• A new interior options and trims with new seats and a redesigned steering wheel.

• Performance enhancements such as improved traction control and new brakes.

• Optional gear such as a new full-width rear spoiler and a carbon fiber based hood.

• Optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires.

The slight changes make the Corvette one of the fastest cars around. In addition to the carbon fiber hood, the Corvette is about 136 pounds lighter which helps in the Corvette’s overall performance but also makes it more fuel efficient. The changes to the Corvette range have helped the sports coupe increase its performance by eight per cent which translates into an improved 0-60 acceleration of 3.7 seconds. Of course, the most important factor of the Corvette range is not just how it performs but how it handles in everyday use.

For a sports car, an overall MPG of about 24 on the highway is not bad, while the Corvette Z06 pulls in 16 MPG in the city. The Corvette range is also covered by Chevy’s 100,000 mile/5 year warranty.
