The newest details are coming out about the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette C8. A General Motors document was leaked containing information that shows a list of items. The expected changes for the second model year of the eighth-generation Corvette, named the C8, include some surprises. Among the new changes, Magnetic Selective Ride Control is set to become a standalone option for drivers. A delayed production start during the initial model year for the first-ever mid-engine Corvette also saw a slowdown no thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic. General Motors had to cease all production at its Bowling Green factory just when demand had reached its highest point. As of now, buyers can no longer order a 2020MY Corvette, so the focus has now shifted to orders for the 2021 Corvette C8.
Good News For Those Who Held Out
From the looks of the leaked document, the 2021 Corvette will have some key additions to help drive sales. The information is sourced from the Global Connect Order WorkBench, a software that dealerships often rely on to collect orders for new vehicles. Customers will have the choice of two new body color options including Red Mist Tintcoat and Silver Flare. Both of which, according to Corvette Blogger, shall be in place of Long Beach Red and Blade Silver. It’s a bit unusual to see such a change after just one model year, but it appears Chevy is open to update the available color options to meet demand. A noticeable carbon fiber finish for the high-wing and the door intake trim will be ready for the 2021 Corvette C8, as well as a slew of body stripes that can be selected to match a wide array of colors. For now, the visible carbon fiber ground effects are not available for customers to select for now. The addition of the Magnetic Selective Ride Control as a standalone option means customers no longer have to opt for the Z51 package.
Interior Changes Come As Well
There are some modest adjustments that will be found on the inside as well. Fantastic options like wireless Apple CarPlay are set to become standard across the entire line-up. The 3LT will be available with a couple of new seat combinations for customers to choose from. New all-weather floor liners are also included, as well as a car cover depicting the C8.R race car. Another listing is the “Stingray R”, but the details to that are not known. Corvette Blogger has this item as a possible special-edition model with visual upgrades taken directly from the C8.R. While these are some of the minor details that will make up some of the changes, we know the timing of the 2021 Corvette C8 is set to start later in the fall of 2020.
Production Is Nearing For 2021 C8
The beginning of assembly of the 2021 Corvette is scheduled to ramp up by September 2020. That’s if production isn’t slowed down by that point due to the coronavirus aftermath. We have hopes the slowdown will not hinder production of the mid-engined sports car, making it back-to-back years of a slowed roll out. There has been speculation and reports that have placed the Chevrolet Corvette sports car at a new starting price over last year’s considerably low $60,000 MSRP for the base model. Chevrolet actually loses money with the sale of the low-end C8 trims. Thinking about driving the premiere Chevrolet product?
