2016 CORVETTE STINGRAY OFFERS NEW DESIGN PACKAGES, CONNECTIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY ENHANCEMENTS

After garnering more than 20 industry awards in 2014 and earning another spot on Car and Driver’s coveted 10Best list for 2015, the Corvette Stingray powers ahead for 2016 with appearance, connectivity and technology enhancements that offer customers more personalization choices and convenience features.

Three all-new, color-themed design packages – Twilight Blue, Spice Red and Jet Black Suede – lead the charge, offering custom-tailored appearances that elevate the Stingray’s presence on the street or track, while features such as an available front curb view parking camera and power-cinching latch for the coupe’s hatchback or convertible’s trunk enhance convenience – and add an extra measure protection.

New smartphone projection technology on Corvette Stingray’s MyLink system displays content from Apple iPhone 5 or later models on the multicolor screen through the Apple CarPlay feature. Supported apps for the system include phone, messages, maps, music and compatible third-party apps.

Additional updates and enhancements for the 2016 Corvette Stingray include:

  • Corvette Racing Yellow Tintcoat and Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat exterior colors (replacing Velocity Yellow and Crystal Red Tintcoat)
  • New standard wheel design now offered silver, black, machined and chrome
  • Carbon Flash badge option deletes the chrome bar on the front grille
  • Carbon Fiber Hood option features a visible weave section
  • Flat-bottom steering wheel
  • Available two-tone GT seats – red or gray – offered in leather or sueded microfiber
  • Red or yellow stitching option offered on Stingray 3LT Jet Black interior
  • Magnetic Ride Control is available on Stingray models without the Z51 package.

Along with all that’s new with the 2016 Corvette Stingray, it carries over an unmatched combination of performance and efficiency. Power comes from the 6.2L LT1 V-8 rated at an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460 lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) – and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance exhaust system. The LT1 engine is offered with a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match and a paddle-shift eight-speed automatic transmission that offers quick shifts on par with the world’s best dual-clutch transmissions – delivered with the smoothness unique to a transmission with a torque converter.

Corvette Stingray’s powertrain enables manual-transmission Z51-equipped models able to accelerate from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds – 3.7 seconds with the eight-speed automatic – and run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, while the Corvette’s chassis and suspension features contribute to 1.03g in cornering grip and stop from 60 mph in 107 feet.

The Corvette Stingray backs its performance capability with the greatest efficiency of any sports car on the market with more than 450 horsepower, delivering an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city driving and 29 mpg on the highway with the seven-speed manual transmission.
