Chevy plans new-gen Corvette image

Chevrolet is currently planning to introduce a new generation of the Corvette as the model in question will be making its way onto the market over the following years.

The new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette hasn’t been around for that much but that isn’t stopping General Motors into starting the development of the future version of this model. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to a recent report, published by Freep, work has already begun on the next generation of the sports car. Our source is citing Mark Reuss, the General Motors global product chief.

If you are probably happy and you have just cancelled your order with Chevy, don’t be, because our source is also saying that the new generation of the Corvette will be making its way onto the market over the next six years, which basically means 2020. The current Chevrolet Corvette is being offered in two body styles and both of them are being powered by the same 6.2 liter V8 LT1 engine, which is good for 455 HP (335 kW) and 632 Nm (460 lb-ft), available at 4,600 rpm, in the coupe, and 450 HP (331 kW) and 609 Nm (450 lb-ft), for the convertible. Power is sent to the RWD through a 7-speed manual transmission.
