2023 CHEVROLET CORVETTE
high-performance ZO6 modelWith supercar performance, an affordable price tag, and flashy styling, the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette honors the nameplate's decades-old status as an automotive icon but with a mid-engine twist. The current C8 is the first generation to have its naturally aspirated V-8 engine mounted behind the passenger compartment, which boosts Chevy's halo sports car into the realm of exotic machinery. Its sharp handling and explosive acceleration are a match for sports cars costing tens of thousands more, but its also comfortable and refined enough to drive cross-country. The C8 is offered as both a convertible and a coupe, and the hardtop model has a roof panel that can be lifted off to allow the sun to shine in. Its cabin is cozy but comfortable, and there's adequate trunk storage for groceries or luggage, making the Corvette an easy sports car to live with on a daily basis. We're charmed by this perennial 10 best award winner, and we think you will be too.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Corvette, and to celebrate, Chevrolet will offer a special commemorative edition. The 70th Anniversary model will be available only on the top-line 3LT trim but can be ordered on both the coupe or convertible body style. Exterior enhancements include special dark-finish aluminum wheels with 70th Anniversary center caps, red brake calipers, and special exterior badging. Choose between White Pearl Metallic or Carbon Flash Metallic paint, with or without Satin Gray or Satin Black racing stripes. Leather upholstery with red stitching and microfiber trim adorns the 70th Anniversary edition's seats, and a set of custom matching luggage is also included. The 70th Anniversary treatment is also available on the high- performance ZO6 model, but we review that car separately. other enhancements for the 2023 model year include new 20-inch wheel designs, optional black tailpipes, new Stealth Aluminum interior trim, and an available Adrenaline Red Dipped cabin theme which covers the dash and door panels in red upholstery.
