2018 Chevrolet Corvette in Depth: Red, White, and Blew by You

In its 65th year of production, the Chevrolet Corvette is a hard-headed masterpiece. A mean looking body and a monstrous V-8 combined with some new features such as an improved back up camera have this car ready to control the road. If you don’t pay attention to the cramped, plain interior then you’ll have trouble finding any issues with the new model.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Chevrolet Corvette is rounding the corner this year on its 65th year of production, and although it, like many Corvette owners, is now old enough to sign up for Medicare, it doesn’t feel any longer in the tooth. In fact, it may be the best it’s ever been.
  • HIGH Killer-sweet powertrain, as grippy as a gecko, eye-catching design. LOWS Decidedly un-luxe interior, heavy Targa top, minimal in-cabin storage.
  • The Corvette sees more than a dozen small changes for 2018, including a new wider-angle lens for the backup camera, a new exterior paint color, a new accent color for the interior trim stitching, and fresh additions to the set of data provided by the available performance data recorder.
