Command the Road in a New Corvette

In 2018, the iconic and multifaceted Corvette celebrates 65 years of production. Its sharp looks don't reveal its age, but its wisdom is expressed through its exceptional performance and features, which have been honed over the decades.

If there's one thing a sports car should be, it's FAST, and the 2018 Corvette is the definition of swift, sprinting from 0-60 mph in around 3 seconds. Being a techie is also a must these days, and Corvette shows its smarts with available technologies like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi, curb-view cameras and an 8-inch LCD instrument cluster display with three custom themes. Additionally, the sports car's genuine carbon fiber accents, aluminum trim and available Napa leather Competition Sport seat showcase yet another side of its personality, which is luxurious and debonair.

To ring in another year, the inimitable Corvette Stingray, Grand Sport (GS) and Z06 return with numerous updates, making them even more compelling choices. Continue Reliable Chevrolet's 2018 Chevy Corvette review to learn more.

2018 Chevy Corvette Changes & Highlights

You can find the new 2018 Chevy Corvette Stingray for sale in Springfield in coupe and convertible body styles. Coupes can be had in 1LT, 2LT and 3LT trim levels, each of which can be topped off with an available Z51 Performance Package (LZ).

The Corvette Stingray gains standard 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels from the Z51 package, along with five new wheel options if you want a more custom look. Electronics have been improved with an enhanced head-up display rotation setting, a better-quality backup camera image and newly standard HD digital radio. There are new interior color stitching packages (red, yellow & blue) and an available Spice Red interior on the 3LT and 3LZ, as well.

Also notable, the new 2018 Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06 now offer a Performance Data Recorder/Cosworth Toolbox that enables drivers to customize performance by adjusting individual wheel speeds, suspension displacement, yaw rate and other aspects.

The 2018 Corvette Z06 and Corvette Grand Sport receive the same enhancements to their electronic features and the same updates to interior color options as the Stingray. Both are also now available with a Carbon 65 Edition on the 3LT trim that includes a carbon fiber spoiler, rear quarter intakes and steering wheel rim. In addition, the GS now offers ceramic brakes as a stand-alone option separate from the Z07 Performance Package, while the Z06 offers new black wheels with a yellow stripe and Pearl Nickel Blade-design wheel options.
