New 2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray at Reedman-Toll Chevrolet for Langhorne, PA
With its epic performance, advanced features and easy-to-drive nature, the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette just might be the world's best sports-car bargain. With awesome V8 power; racetrack-ready braking; exceptional handling in Z51 or Z06 trim; comfortable highway cruiser; high-tech and well-built interior; and the coupe's roomy cargo area; the Corvette is an absolutely remarkable value. For 2016, the Corvette gets a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, a power-closing trunk (both coupe and convertible) and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration as standard, while higher trims also get front-view parking cameras. Numerous minor trim changes include available two-tone seats and the deletion of the Atlantic and Pacific packages.
Under the Corvette Stingray's Hood
Two engine options await 2016 Corvette Stingray buyers. First is the standard 6.2-liter V8 engine, with 455 horsepower, 460 lb-ft of torque and a hard-to-believe 29 mpg on the highway, thanks to its ability to imperceptibly shut down four of its eight cylinders at light throttle. The 2016 Corvette Z06 comes with a supercharged version of that engine, pumping out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, the most of any production car ever made by General Motors. Both Corvette models come standard with a 7-speed manual gearbox that sends the V8's glorious power to the rear wheels. Optional is a GM-designed 8-speed automatic transmission that we feel is going to get a lot of takers. At the core of the Corvette Stingray's driver-focused technologies is the cockpit-mounted Driver Mode Selector, which allows drivers to optimize the car for their driving preference and road conditions via five settings: Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track. The Tour mode is the default setting for everyday driving; Weather mode is designed primarily for added confidence while driving in rain and snow; Eco mode is for achieving optimal fuel economy; Sport mode is for spirited road driving and Track mode is for track use.
Design of Chevy Corvette Stingray
Designed from the start to be an open top vehicle, no additional reinforcements were required for the Stingray convertible. The fully electronic drop-top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely using the key fob. All of this, even while driving at speeds up to 30 mph. The Corvette Stingray interior blends fine materials and craftsmanship with advanced technologies that contribute to a more connected and more engaging driving experience. Every feature and detail is designed to enhance the driver's connection to the Corvette, starting with the fighter jet-inspired wraparound cockpit and continuing with supportive seats and high-definition, configurable screens.
Chevrolet's Corvette coupe and convertible for 2016 is a car just about anyone could love, be they buy-American diehards or the most meticulous enthusiast. And, while the upcoming 700-plus-horsepower Dodge Viper should prove a challenge, the Viper lacks the Corvette's sophisticated suspension and interior that help make it a livable daily driver. Stingray employs a host of safety technologies to help keep you safe before, during and after a possible collision, including an available head-up display that projects critical information onto your windshield so you can keep your eyes on the road. The Stingray also allows you to remotely start, lock and unlock your vehicle with the OnStar RemoteLink.
