Find Of The Day: 2007 Chevrolet Corvette C6
A shorter sixth-generation Corvette that was more powerful than ever before and benefited from upgrades in handling, acceleration and braking debuted for 2005.
Major changes for 2007 include an enhanced stereo, and a larger glove compartment.
Called “the most aerodynamically efficient Corvette ever” by Chevrolet, the current coupe has a 0.286 coefficient of drag. Chief engineer Dave Hill said it’s also “more competition-influenced.”
A six-speed automatic transmission that operates via paddle shifters and a new three-spoke steering wheel became available on 2006 models. The transmission incorporates two electronically controlled automatic modes: Drive and Sport. Dual-stage frontal airbags incorporate passenger-sensing technology.
Many familiar styling cues highlight the latest Corvette, but the current generation is the first one since 1962 with fixed headlights. Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights are standard. Round taillights and integrated exhaust tips appear at the rear. A center bulge on the forward-hinged hood radiates outward. A tapered rear deck is claimed to improve high-speed performance.
Composite body panels sit atop a hydroformed steel frame with aluminum and magnesium components. The independent suspension uses transverse leaf springs. Rather than conventional door handles, the Corvette features General Motors’ Keyless Access, which unlocks the doors and allows the engine to be started with a key fob.
In this two-seater, the dashboard carries on the Corvette’s dual-cockpit theme with a two-tone split. The gauges use white LED technology, which makes them backlit day and night.
A CD player with MP3 capability is standard, while the Bose system includes an in-dash six-CD changer and steering wheel audio controls. This car is also equipped with a power-operated top, GM’s OnStar communication system and a navigation system.
Under the Hood
The 6.0-liter LS2 V-8 generates 400 hp at 6,000 rpm and 400 pounds-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm.
Corvette owners expect energizing performance, and that’s what they get in the 400-hp model. Automatic-equipped Corvettes are plenty fast. The transmission tends to upshift quickly for better fuel economy.
Engine: 6.L V8
