6 Fast 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Facts

  6 Fast 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Facts We sat down with Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter on the occasion of the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1’s official L.A. auto show introduction to learn a bit more about what makes this 755-hp, 715-lb-ft beast tick. Here are the six coolest things we learned: America First! One way the ZR1 manages to be so much more awesome than the Z06 is by flipping the bird to all those European regulators and conforming to North America's regulations only.

Other Models. 2017 . Corvette Grand Sport . STARTING AT. Only five prototypes were created, but their impact on the future of Chevrolet racing can’t be overstated. All five original Grand Sport models exist to this day.

The latest member of the Corvette lineup, the 2017 Grand Sport carries on the racing spirit of the original 1963 model, combining the power of Only five prototypes were created, but their impact on the future of Chevrolet racing can’t be overstated. All five original Grand Sport models exist to this day.

WHAT WE LIKE: The Grand Sport’s everyday usability and the glorious power of its LT1 V-8 continue to impress. Driving it back to back with far pricier choices in the high-performance sports-car realm reveals that the chassis in General Motors’ marquee sports car delivers better isolation while maintaining a lustworthy suppleness in its steering and handling. Cameras on the nose of the Vette give us an idea of when we’re about to connect with a curb during low-speed and parking maneuvers, but it requires that we actually use them, which is easier said than done, necessitating a tap or two on the center touchscreen. Nearly every logbook comment mentions drivers’ preferences for the base seats in this car, so you can safely conclude that we like them more than the optional Competition seats.

  220-MPH, 800-HP Electric Corvette Detailed Ahead 2018 CES Debut It's going to be more powerful than the ZR1. Originally announced in October 2016 by Maryland-based Genovation Cars, the GXE will finally make its debut in pre-production metal on January 9 on the occasion of the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Along with the disclosure about the performance EV’s long-awaited public unveiling, the company is happy to report it has updated the technical specifications and now the numbers are even more impressive.

The Corvette Grand Sport is an excellent value. If you're looking for an affordable and balanced sports car, this is it.

WHAT WE DON’T LIKE: Both the rearward and forward cameras display a hilariously low-resolution image in our 2017 model, the lack of crispness making it difficult to discern the edge of a hard object. Chevrolet claims to have upped the pixel count for ’18. Also, one astute reader pointed out that when we chided this car for not quite making the same grip as other Grand Sports, we were comparing a car with its tires inflated to 35 psi (this one) to others with tires set to 30 psi. So, we don’t like it when we (meaning this author) make boneheaded comparisons. It turns out this car’s rocker panel was repaired at a dealership before we took possession and the tire placard on the door jamb was replaced with an inaccurate one, resulting in our overfilling of the tires. All Grand Sports’ tires should indeed be inflated to 30 psi.

WHAT WENT WRONG: Nothing went wrong that was the Grand Sport’s fault. After two and a half months in the fleet, our blue Vette developed a moderate vibration at speed. We pulled the wheels and attempted to rebalance them, only to learn that all four wheels were bent. Michigan roads having taken their toll, we paid a wheel-repair specialist $480 to straighten three wheels. The left-rear wheel was cracked and a replacement 12-by-20-inch wheel ran $619 at the dealer; feeling lazy, we also spent $20 to have the dealer swap the 25-series, run-flat tire because not having to muscle tires that big off and on a wheel is worth every bit of a couple of sawbucks.

WHERE WE WENT: Aside from the Vette’s pilgrimage to its birthplace of Bowling Green, Kentucky, for the solar eclipse in August, it hasn’t left the state of Michigan. We’re not quite sure why; it’s well known that the 15-cubic-foot cargo hold offers plenty of practicality as far as sports cars go. Unfortunately for the Grand Sport, it likely will stay near home through most of the winter. We recently acquired a set of Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4s in the OE size ($1515 for four) to keep the car safely on the road in snow and ice. The one unfortunate aspect of this is that the PA4s are not run-flats. Taking a road trip without provisions for a flat tire is the kind of gamble few of us enjoy considering, so we don’t expect to be stretching the car’s legs much before spring.

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is This Year's Indy 500 Pace Car .
Leading drivers in the 102nd running of the iconic raceAfter what felt like years of buildup, Chevrolet finally revealed the Corvette ZR1 in November of last year. With 755 hp on tap and an extreme aero package, the ZR1 has already set a lap record at Virginia International Raceway. Based on our first ride impressions, we have a feeling that won't be the last record it breaks. Next month, at the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500, the ZR1 will also hit the track as the race's official pace car.
