2019 Chevrolet Corvette Review and Specs
Overview: The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport occupies the slim real estate between the 455-hp Stingray and the supercharged, 650-hp Z06, combining elements of the two. The Stingray’s naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V-8 is surrounded by the Z06’s gnarly bodywork, flared fenders, meaty tires, and wide-track suspension. Think of the Grand Sport as basically equal to the track-ready Z06 in every way save for power. The combination is potent enough to earn it a spot on our 2017 10Best Cars list, and track rats can go nuts and buy a Z07 aerodynamics and handling package very similar to the one available on the Z06, complete with carbon-ceramic brakes, a deeper spoiler, a harder-core suspension tune, and ultragrippy Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires.
What’s New: Similar to its Stingray and Z06 siblings, the Grand Sport receives a multitude of minor updates for 2019. The backup camera boasts higher resolution, the head-up display can be adjusted over a wider range, and there are a few new interior and exterior color combinations. Headlining the Grand Sport’s transition into the new year is the limited-production Carbon 65 Edition package that’s also available on the Z06.
