2011 Corvette C6 Overview

Chevy Corvette at Les Standford Chevrolet in Detroit MIMeet the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette. If you’re in the market for a high end, corner hugging track toy with real world practicality, this is your car.

The current Corvette has been around for a few years, but don’t let that make you think it’s a tired, old design. Over the past few years, the Corvette has evolved into a world class performance machine. Starting with the base model, you get 6.2 liters of American V8, good for 430 horses. Upgrading to the Z06 nets you the LS7 7.0 liter, packing 505 horsepower. For you adrenaline addicts, Chevrolet offers the ZR-1, with 638 horses rumbling out of its supercharged 6.2 liter V8.

Ridiculous power isn’t the only trick up the Corvette’s sleeve. With its independent rear suspension, tuned springs and struts, and wide, aggressive tires, the Corvette has a world class sport suspension. Chevrolet also offers the Grand Sport package, which further enhances the Corvette’s build idea that power means nothing without control. The Grand Sport builds off of the LT packages, further pushing the limits of grip one can attain around a corner. The Z06 and range topping ZR-1 get similar treatments to their suspensions.

Chevrolet has also managed to bypass a decades old inconvenience that has plagued drivers of exotic cars. Fuel economy, or in the case of many sports cars, the lack thereof. Although packing a muscular, energetic V8, the Corvette will gladly hum down the highway at a wallet saving 23 mpg. Even in urban environments, an impressive 16 mpg is easily attained.

Corvettes are the epitome of the American sports car. An icon of cutting edge performance mixed with classic looks. Step into one at your local dealership and hold on tight.

2011 Chevrolet Corvette

Chevy Corvette at Les Standford Chevrolet in Detroit MIThe Chevrolet Corvette has earned a reputation as a trendsetter when it comes to the latest technology and the best performance. The 2011 model lives up to those expectations, providing a 430 horsepower V8 engine with a lightweight aluminum block. This motor propels the car up to 190 miles per hour during tests. A removable roof panel is present in some models. A six speed manual and a paddle-shifting automatic transmission are both available.

The convertible roof, or a transparent roof panel, are both available. A Dual Roof Package is also available, offering both roofs. The modern Corvette is unmistakeable as a Corvette, while offering many new stylistic elements that give it a sleek, slightly jagged appearance.

With a stylish interior, the Chevrolet Corvette allows its driver to experience luxury and sport. Leather is available not only in the seating, but in the dash, console, door panel, and others. Red, yellow, and blue stitching are available, and can be combined in a way that matches your custom desires.

Performance is the Corvette’s defining aspect, and 190 miles on the test field is a force to be reckoned with. It is capable of doing this while still using up only 26 miles per gallon on the highway. This is due in part to the drag coefficient of 0.286. The engine’s torque ramps it up from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.2 seconds.

Some models also include the option of Magnetic Selective Ride Control. This improves the suspension through the tight corners. Essentially, it uses electromagnets to stiffen the suspension during turning, while allowing it to loosen up for rougher conditions. The transmission provides two settings: tour and sport.

The safety of the vehicle hasn’t been sacrificed for high performance. Active handling and four antilock brakes help prevent an accident, while twelve airbags protect passengers during a crash.
