- chevy released more details about the 2021 corvette coupe and convertible.
- the mid-engine c8 gets new features and new interior and exterior color options.
- set to go on sale near the end of the year, the 2021 corvette starts at $59,995, the same base price as last year.
chevy already announced that the 2021 corvette would cost the same as the 2020 model, and now we have more information on the car's updates for its second model year. new colors, features, and slightly different options are all on the table for the 2021 edition of the mid-engined c8, which will start production later this year.
the two new colors include red mist tintcoat (pictured at top) and silver flare metallic (pictured below, far right). there's also a new grey and yellow interior color scheme and new stripe designs and colors.
wireless apple carplay and android auto capabilities are now standard, and the digital gauge cluster offers a few new display options including a different visualization for the tachometer for track driving. gm's buckle to drive feature, which requires the driver to buckle their seatbelt before the car can be shifted out of park, is now standard.
performance-wise, the 6.2-liter v-8 engine and eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are unchanged. but the 2021 corvette does now offer magnetorheological dampers as a standalone option, meaning you can choose this suspension setup without the z51 performance package.
the 2021 corvette coupe will start at $59,995 and the convertible will start at $67,495. orders are open now, and we expect both models to go on sale near the end of the year as gm's bowling green, kentucky factory prepares to switch over to the next model year a few months from now.
