Chevrolet today officially announced of its new 2012 Corvette C6, which comes with a revised interior and other creature comfort upgrades, but no changes to the power output on this already potent model.
Comparing to the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette C6 model, the 2012 Corvette C6 changes are subtle. However, the biggest impact of all is the revised interior, which gets a new steering wheel and new seats along with accented red stitching. The new bucket seats are designed to be more comfortable, which made of microfiber inserts to allow more air circulation along with a more supportive lumbar. And through, we see red stitching that accented the interior to give a more defining look.
“We constantly strive to make the Corvette a better car on the road and the track,” says Tadge Juechter, Corvette vehicle line director and chief engineer. “For 2012, the Corvette lineup achieves its highest performance level ever, while at the same time being easier to drive and enjoy thanks to several changes and new features inside the car.”
Other than that, the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette base model remains relatively the same as the 2011 model. However, Chevrolet added a few optional equipment for the Z06 and ZR1 models, which include Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires, a carbon fiber hood, traction management system, and a new Boss premium audio system for all trims.
Lastly, 2012 Chevrolet Corvette is the availability with a variety of brake caliper colors for customers to choose from, and these colors are red, yellow, silver or gray.
Power levels in the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette remains the same with 505 horsepower in the Z06 model and 638 horsepower in the supercharged ZR1 model.
