2017 Corvette Stingray
Craftsmanship in the name of precision
Stingray is a pure driving machine, born from brilliant engineering and precision performance. Its aggressively sculpted exterior is a statement of intent; its driver-oriented cockpit is a creation of purpose.
Stingray combines race-proven technology with provocative, purposeful design. Every element serves a purpose, from functional exterior vents to intelligent driver controls. Available in coupe and convertible with a host of personalization options, there’s a Stingray to satisfy any driving enthusiast.
Stingray features brilliantly sculpted headlamps and taillamps that emanate crisp, bright color and provide optimal lighting performance.
- Bi-Xenon HID headlamps achieve high and low beams with a single light engine
- Edge-lit LED turn signals are framed in black chrome housing
- our-element taillamps recede into reverse reflector for crisp, even lighting
- High-mounted stoplamp is mounted in the aerodynamic rear spoiler
Designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, no additional reinforcements were required for the Stingray convertible. The fully electronic drop-top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely by using the key fob – even while driving at speeds of up to 30 mph – and hides beneath a hard, body-colored tonneau cover.
The available Twilight Blue, Spice Red and Jet Black Suede Design Packages take Stingray to the next level of customization, design and performance. And with a variety of available accessories, there’s a Stingray for any driver.
Ready for takeoff
Inside, you’re greeted with a flowing design made from premium, authentic materials. Intuitive instruments help you keep your focus on the road ahead. The standard Grand Touring seat and available Competition Sport seat each feature a lightweight magnesium frame for optimal support.
- GT seat available in premium Napa leather seating surfaces with 3LT trim level
- Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
- Unique flat-bottom steering wheel enhances the driving experience
Precise on road or track
Stingray features a light, stiff space frame for optimal 50-50 weight distribution and impressive power-to-weight ratio. With Magnetic Ride Technology and a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine with available dry-sump oil system, Stingray is a true performance sports car.
Electric power steering helps eliminate road shake, enhancing overall responsiveness. Standard BREMBO® brakes deliver confident stopping power while Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport Zero Pressure summer-only tires† optimize ride, grip and handling. Put simply, Stingray does exactly what you want it to do, and it does it extremely well.
Available Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ is a real-time damping system that “reads” the road every millisecond and can adjust in under 15 milliseconds. Available Performance Traction Management features five settings tailored to driving skill level and track conditions.
A standard 7-speed manual transmission features a rear transaxle that enables even weight balance while the Active Rev Matching sensors simulate heel-toe shifting and enhance the driving experience by matching engine speed to the desired gear for smooth shifting transitions. The available 8-speed paddle-shift offers the smooth control of an automatic but with quick, precise shifts and manual mode for track driving.
Performance Data Recorder
The available Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder logs video of your driving sessions, along with real-time performance data, onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet Mode can capture video and data for additional peace of mind.
One-third the weight of steel, the Stingray aluminum space frame is 100 pounds (45 kilograms) lighter than its predecessor. The weight savings make Stingray light and lean, ready to take on any road with precision.
The aluminum space frame and rails enable tailored gauge, shape and strength properties with minimal weight. In fact, the all-aluminum space frame is 57% stiffer than the previous-generation Stingray.
A Mode for Every Road
With the turn of a dial, everything changes. Five distinct, selectable driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to customize your Stingray for any road.
RECONFIGURABLE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER
The eight-inch diagonal LCD display features three customizable themes with varying levels of information, from G-force to redline and more.
This available Display projects data near your line of sight on the windshield, helping you stay informed while you focus on the road ahead.
Corvette keeps you connected and entertained with a retractable 8-inch diagonal Chevrolet MyLink† color touch-screen. Using steering wheel controls, hand gesture recognition and voice recognition capabilities, you can talk, text and stream music without taking your hands off the wheel.
