AROUND THE CORVETTE

The 2023 Z06’s exterior has a bold, futuristic expression with mid-engine exotic proportions, but it is still unmistakably Corvette. It’s lean and muscular, with an athletic sculptural shape conveying a sense of motion and power from every angle.
DCT 8-SPEED TRANSMISSION
The next generation LT6 is paired with Chevrolet’s first eight speed dual-clutch transmission, which provides lightning-fast shifts and excellent power transfer. This transmission is uniquely designed with TREMEC to provide the best of both worlds: the spirited, direct connected feeling of a manual and the premium driving comfort of an automatic. The double-paddle de-clutch feature even allows the driver to disconnect the clutch by holding both paddles for more manual control.
REAR VISION CAMERA (HD)
When in Reverse at low speeds, provides you a high resolution view of the scene directly behind the vehicle on the Infotainment screen to help you park and avoid nearby objects.
Dynamic guidelines laid over the display image assist in parking manoeuvres by showing the vehicle’s path.
LED TAIL LAMPS
Dual-element LED tail lamps with animated turn signals.
QUAD EXHAUST TIPS
A return to previous Corvettes, the new quad exhaust tips are located back in the center of the bumper whereas the Stingray have them located at the outboard ends.
The mid-engine design yields a large trunk - big enough for two golf bags.
It can also store the removable roof panel on Corvette Z06 Coupe models.
The standard Z06 features a front splitter and a unique rear spoiler which includes an installable fixed wickerbill.
The available carbon fiber aero package adds a larger front splitter, front-corner canards (dive planes), a pedestal-mounted rear wing and underbody aero strakes for the maximum track-capable downforce and maneuverability.
WIRELESS CHARGING PAD
Keep the charging cords at home. When you’re on the road in the Chevrolet Corvette, the wireless charging pad, located within easy reach near the cupholders, keeps your compatible smartphone charged and ready.
DRIVER INFORMATION CENTER
The 12-inch screen directly behind the steering wheel lets you control not only what vehicle information you see, but also how you see it. Speed, settings, turn-by-turn navigation, media, and telephone are all easily viewed through this screen.
DRIVER CENTRIC COCKPIT
The cockpit of the C8 Chevrolet Corvette has been moved forward by 420 mm (16.5”), but envelops the driver, conveying the high performance and aeronautic theme.
Vertical climate controls and ultra-thin vents minimize the height of the instrument panel, creating a low, spacious interior.
There are those who don’t use a smartphone, and therefore wouldn’t benefit from the MyChevrolet mobile app - but now, some of that technology is available right here in the vehicle. Up to 10 phones can be connected via Bluetooth and up to 2 simultaneously.
