Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Performance Specs
Performance enthusiasts will have a lot to admire across the board with the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. It is motivated by a 6.2L V8 engine that pumps 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
In terms of driving dynamics, the Corvette Stingray comes with a Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension with a damping system that reads the road and adjusts the suspension in less than 15 milliseconds. You can also get Performance Traction management, electric power steering, and standard Brembo brakes.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Performance Specs
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 is also powered by a 6.2L V8 engine, but this version gets a standard performance exhaust system that increases output to 460 hp, enough to propel this model to 60 mph in as little as four seconds. You can opt for this exhaust system on the regular Stingray model, but it costs a bit more.
The Stingray Z51 also gets additional performance upgrades to deliver even more precise driving dynamics in the most demanding conditions. These include a standard high-precision suspension tuning, more aggressively oriented gear ratios on the manual transmission, a standard electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling, more aggressive brake rotors, and bigger wheels.
