Chevrolet Might Be Advancing Release Date For The 2021 Corvette C8

 

The production of the brand-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 has been going through hell and high water to come into completion since 2019. This tumultuous affair started when the United Auto Workers Union arranged a strike and shutdown from state-to-state at GM facilities for about 40 days, putting a pause at the start of production. The global pandemic that followed afterward only worsened the situation.

Presently, it seems as though things are on the up and up for the making of the C8 since Corvette Action Center reports that production has stabilized with two shifts producing an average of 186 cars per day, which is an increase from where it was just a month prior. Due to this, the production start date of the 2021 Corvette is being moved up a lot sooner.

An update of the production was released Thursday of last week (Nov, 6) with General Motors (GM) saying that the making of the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is now set to start December 8, which is about a month earlier than it was expected that it would begin. It’s plausible that GM might still produce the 2020 and 2021 models at the same time as the automaker is attempting to hit its original 20,000-unit production target for the model year, but this could only happen if the orders prove to be outstanding. In fact, last month, GM took down its configurator for the 2020 Corvette and put up one for the preference of the 2021 Corvette.

The shift from the Corvette production in 2020 to 2021 should be one that is far less stressful, especially since only minute changes have been introduced. On top of this, two new exterior colors have been added as well as new stripe options. There is also a new color scheme in the interior, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and magnetorheological dampers as a standalone option.

To sum up what that means for customers, those who made their purchase for the 2021 Corvette C8 could possibly get their cars sooner rather than later, and in some instances, it could be their new Christmas present…from themselves.  If you ask us, there’s nothing like a new sporty muscle car that indicates a sign that things are looking brighter for the new year.

Cool Features To Look Out For

  • Highly advanced technologies like wireless phone charging, NFC (Near Field Communication), backing for over-the-air updates and a 1080p Performance Data Recorder.
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard.
  • A new Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 Plus system, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth audio streaming, as well as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot.
  • A Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension system for aiding driving with potholes or slanted driveways.
  • An all-new Full-Length Dual Racing Stripe is available for sprucing up the cosmetics. Specifically comes with blue, orange, red, or yellow stripes. Also has a new gray and yellow color arrangement involved in the options.

The 2022 Chevy Bolt Might Be The More Sleek and Sexier Younger Sister

 

Spy Shots Of The 2022 Chevy Bolt and EUV

The Chevrolet company is in the process of acquiring an extensive number of brand new electric vehicles after development. In particular, one is a meticulously refashioned version of the Bolt, which will be allied with an SUV variant called the Bolt EUV. For the most part, the herculean model will be rebadged and serve as a comparable form of a Buick Velite, which is currently being sold in China. Meanwhile, the miniature Bolt will be the main successor of the original 2016 Bolt model. Recently, car blogs like Motor1 were able to sneak some spy shots of the upcoming environmentally-conscious car.

Photos taken from the Australian car site, CarExpert, show a prototype version of the Bolt resting in a near desolate parking lot. According to Motor 1, this particular shot, as well as other succeeding shots that were shown on their site were taken by journalist Derek Fung.

Hinged upon what has been revealed by the company thus far, the sustainable hatchback appears to have a sleeker look than the current Bolt. At this point, one shouldn’t make vast assumptions, but it looks like the front end might have gained much inspiration from the latest Blazer, which also appears to encompass split headlights. The car’s masquerade layer still hides the front fascia,  however, we do notice that two rows of lights are hiding underneath.

It is not yet known what changes will be made in the Bolt’s cabin, but we do know that the present generation of the model is charged by an electric motor producing 201 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Between two changes, the range has an EPA rating of 258 miles (416 kilometers).

For comparison purposes, it’s worth noting that the Chinese Buick Velite is a bit lackluster to the current Bolt, as it only has 174 horsepower. 

By sometime next year, we should expect to hear more information about the Bolt’s dramatic entrance. It is expected that its debut will be around the second half of 2021, and will also hit dealerships by late next year or early 2022.

More Details About The Bolt

  • Both the Bolt EV and EUV will remain on General Motor’s BEV2 platform, therefore, they will keep the same battery and charging equipment rather than the brand’s new Ultium batteries. 
  • Some known updates in the interior include a more upscale design, as well as, improvements regarding seating, the infotainment system, and the push-button gear selector.
  • The EUV will have a few available upgrades such as a sunroof and the cornerstone Super Cruise, which is a high-tech control system that allows drivers to take his or her hands off the wheel on the freeway and so far, this has only been available in Cadillacs.

Chevrolet Shows Us That It’s Time To Charge Forward In The Bolt EV’s New Teaser Trailer

 

The most recent 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV is in its fourth model year for its particular segment, behind the upcoming 2021 Bolt EV scheduled to be released for 2021, at a later date. At the present time, Chevrolet is busy promoting the fully-electric hatchback in their latest advertisement video titled “It’s Time To Charge Forward.”

In the 85-second video, the viewer can see the Bolt EV flaunting a few of its features such as charging the car battery at home and on the go, EPA estimated distance per charge (259 miles), regenerative braking, driving stats, onboard Wi-Fi, cargo room, app technologies, and acceleration specs.

By the end of the video, it’s clear just what Chevrolet wants us to know, that “Our Future Is Electric.” Likewise, GM Authority has previously made their message known several times of their push for transitioning into more electrified vehicles. In fact, the company is planning to introduce 20 new electric models by 2023. This encompasses the upcoming Chevy Bolt EUV, a.k.a “Electric Utility Vehicle”, that is in the same family tree as the regular Bolt EV in the realm of mechanics. However, with the compact five-door crossover SUV type of body style, it offers better functionality and more family-friendly space. Towards the end of the small flick, it shows a near-silhouette profile teaser image of the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV.

 

 

In terms of the engine, Chevy’s SUV spin-off will be powered by the same BEV2 (second-generation Battery Electric Vehicle architecture) as the first-generation model for the Bolt EV.

Other nifty updates to look forward to on the EUV include a reworked interior that has been rumored to look posher rather than plastic and…basic. The automaker also wants to address numerous concerns about the current Bolt, like improving the seats, having an infotainment system that is more state-of-the-art, and including a push-button gear selector.

Regarding the newest member of the Chevrolet hatchback family, it has a more advanced powertrain for its 2021 model, by having an additional 21 miles for range for the maximum estimated 259 miles between plug-ins.

One thing that is certain, is that we can expect a great deal of content coming from General Motors EV sooner rather than later, but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall has an extensive and diverse list of Chevrolet vehicles ranging from a variety of different price ranges, trims, and styles. 

For those who are specifically interested in the new Bolt model, please remember that it’s not even set to release until the summer of next year but for now, shoppers can enjoy an incredibly low price of about just $40,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV Premier. It also includes features like heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, and the slick Rear Camera Mirror. It also comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fancier wheels, and roof-mounted side rails.

General Motors Gives Us An Electrifying Tease With The 2021 Chevy Bolt

General Motors is allowing the public a sneak preview of its two new Chevy Bolt versions, which has been the brand’s big-ticket all-electric model since its release in 2017. A restyled and even larger Bolt EV were given initial announcements at GM’s “EV Day” by March of this year and are set to enter production in the summer of 2021.

The glimpse that we get of these vehicles is very minimal, which is understandable seeing how it was offered during the automaker’s recent virtual fleet solutions summit meeting. It displayed a silhouette of the upcoming Bolt, which then transformed into the Bolt EUV.

The remodeled Bolt has a look that is much sportier, as well as new seats, adaptive cruise control, and other minute changes. Moreover, the company pushed up the range in this year’s Bolt from 238 miles to 259, though no additional is expected in the new design.

The Bolt EUV will have a longer wheelbase than the regular Bolt EV and should be attractive to shoppers who prefer a more SUV type of style rather than a hatchback. In the video, the EUV looks longer than the EUV but doesn’t appear any taller. It seems as though this dynamic duo is perfect for appealing to buyers who have different lifestyles, as drivers who don’t have large families might prefer the simple Bolt EV model.

The pair will still remain on GM’s BEV2 platform, which is set apart from the new “Ultium” battery pack revealed during the company’s EV Day. The Cadillac Lyriq, which is the upcoming electric crossover as well as the electric GMC Hummer will be the first of GM’s latest models to be constructed on their new electric blueprinting. Similarly, the Bolt EV and EUV were originally set to go into production by the end of this year but were delayed until the following year due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The automaker also confirmed the 2021 fraternal twins will be the first vehicles besides the Cadillac lineup to have Super Cruise. This system makes use of extremely calculated and precise 3D mapping data, GPS, and an assortment of sensors to keep the vehicle in its lane, meanwhile, facial recognition makes sure that the driver has his or her eyes on the road and is ready to take back control. Soon enough, it will also be able to change lanes by driver’s simply turning their signal and will able to tack on more functions once the software is readied and made available

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the 2021 Bolt Ev and EUV finally do arrive, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Automall! We sell a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles that are suitable for different needs.

The Chevrolet Corvette Becomes The Pace Car For The 2020 Indy 500 For The 17th Time

 

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, new ways of living and adjustments have been made in order to slow down the spread of the virus, and one of those ways includes the absence of spectators at various sporting events, specifically in this year’s Indianapolis 500 race. However, fans will still see a familiar face, which is the Chevrolet Corvette acting as the 2020’s pace car for the fourth year in a row and the 17th time overall.

Simply put, the role of a pace car is to set the tone for the racers for at least a couple of laps before the race and then finally turning off to the pits prior to the drop of the green flag. They are also used in cases of caution on the track such as with some crash debris or difficult weather conditions. Therefore, it’s safe to say that this Corvette won’t get its wheels too dirty.

The specific model being used will be the Torch Red Z51 with a spoiler and ground effects package, it will also include exterior accents and available GT2 bucket seats. Unsurprisingly, this Corvette will sport (pun intended) a distinctive Indy 500 livery, however the automaker has not mentioned whether or not a replica package will be available to customers.

GM president Mark Reuss will act as the ceremonial pace car driver leading the field of racecars to the green flag, and said this in a statement:

“It’s truly an honor to have the opportunity to be behind the wheel of the mid-engine Corvette Pace Car at such a historic race as the Indy 500. The 2020 Corvette Stingray is the result of a close collaboration between the Corvette Racing and production engineering teams, setting a new benchmark for supercars around the world.”

Remarkably enough, the C8 Corvette isn’t even the first mid-engine car that will grace the Indy 500 track, as that distinction was already given to the Pontiac Fiero in 1984. Furthermore, along with the 17 Corvette pacers in Indianapolis and a Chevrolet vehicle as performed as a pace car 31 times, which outranks any other automaker starting with the Fleetmaster convertible in 1948.

Initially scheduled for May 24th, organizers planned to postpone the race to the current race date of August 23rd and with a spectator capacity of 50 percent. Unfortunately in June, this number dropped to 25 percent, as the virus has not seen a significant slow down as of yet. Additionally, it was announced that all on-track activities will be inaccessible to the public.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

For all of you vehicle enthusiasts, you’ll be pleased to know that Miami Lakes Automall has a great abundance of Chevrolet vehicles geared towards different wants and needs, and one of which happens to be a spanking new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray for around $86,000, (plus destination fee). 

Another Chevy model that is slightly less pricey, but still just as sporty is our 2020 Chevrolet Camaro, with its highest trim going around $66,000, (plus destination fee).

Cool C8 Features To Look Forward To

The arrival of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 is highly anticipated by car enthusiasts all around and next up on its agenda is the development list of the performance variant and the first of its kind. Tracing back from 1963, the Z06 is targeted towards those who intend on whipping their new speed racer on the track. The car certainly has some big shoes to fill from its 2019 predecessor, the C7 Z06. However, we don’t doubt that it will in fact one-up its older sibling, better yet here are some Cool C8 Features To Look Forward To.

Hypersonic Transmission

More than likely, the production version of the Z06 won’t be the same as the C8.R’s Xtrac grand tourer racing transmission. However, the production vehicle will have a 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle gearbox, which is far more reasonable on the main road. Its frenzied power paired with its race-inspired transmission are sure to cause a scene. Additionally, one should see improvements on the straight-line speed as it cuts around corners.

New Aerodynamics And Upgrades

It’s more than clear that the Z06 will get a brand new aerodynamic package, also encompassing active aerodynamics. Not long ago, spy shots were able to catch a glimpse of the new prototypes, which flaunted an immense rear wing, sparking a bit of nostalgia of the Koenigsegg Agera R. It’s been rumored that the wing will be a standard feature, but there is some speculation that it will be apart of the Z07 package. There is also an expectation that two extra packages will be involved and with airflow that is far more intense.

Tires That Never Tire With Their Grip

In order to deliver the utmost power while heightening its grip as it cuts through corners, it’s important that the new Z06 has some tires that are quite clingy on the pavement. There have also been some reports that the brand is making use of  Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, which is sure to achieve the desired result. The Michelin will be wrapped around the 20-inch front wheels, while larger 21-inch wheels are mounted on the back. Furthermore, there is talk that there will be available. light-weight, carbon-fiber wheels.

Significant Upgrades For Motor

The C8 has already proven itself to be content and efficient, especially with its -dynamic- chassis, which aids in its strong grip. Some sources are saying that the Magnetic Ride Control system will be switched out for a version of General Motors Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve (DSSV) system. Even now, it’s being used in different performance models by GM, and has been put to work in motorsport applications. Additionally, brakes will be the center focus, and will probably sport comparisons to the C7 Z06’s ceramic-matrix system.

Super Speedy Performance

Another anticipated feature of the C8 Corvette is overall a faster performance, specifically an even faster rate than 2.8 seconds during its 0-60 mph run. Moreover, with more improvements being made like with air being used to push the car down, a refined suspicion, stronger brakes, and a flat-plane crank engine, it is probable that the new vehicle will turn out with an unmatched level of execution.

Interior

The C8 won’t shy too far away from its Z06 origins with its two-seat and track-centered materials. The cabin will also rock some badging and minimal but strategic accenting. Other materials that will be used include leather, real metal, a likeness of suede, and stitched headliner. It will also come with a removable roof that fits in the Corvette’s trunk. Buyers who choose to upgrade to the 3LT package will be gifted with premium-like materials like sewn leather on many interior surfaces, including carbon-fiber trim.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Setbacks came as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the company was forced to cut down its scheduled production year for its 2021 model.  There is a likelihood that the new model will not arrive until 2022, and when that time comes, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Chevrolet.

Those who are interested in this vehicle can simply chat with an online representative for further information. Also, feel free to also check out other great models at our dealership, such as the Silverado or Tahoe, until you find something that suits you best!

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Revamps Apple CarPlay and Includes Other New Features

 

Revamped 2021 Corvette 

In 2019, Chevrolet revealed its highly-awaited mid-engine Corvette Stingray. It came well supplied with highly advanced technology such as wireless phone charging, NFC (Near Field Communication), backing for over-the-air updates and a 1080p Performance Data Recorder. Setbacks came as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the company was forced to cut down its scheduled production year for its 2020 model, but Chevrolet recently announced that the 2020 version will receive updates.

Although the price and its highly energetic 6.2 L V8 engine will stay the same, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard features. This “driver-centric cockpit” includes an instrument cluster that is fully digital and has a brand new driver mode on-screen as well as a track digital tachometer.

More exciting infotainment features that are included are Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 Plus system, with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth audio streaming, as well as a 4G LTE mobile hotspot. Car review site, Car and Driver reported the system to be user-friendly and has a fast response to commands. It also comes with key safety features like Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

In 2019, the company also implemented a Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 suspension system useful for adjusting for potholes and/or slanted driveways. This feature is now available as a standalone option regardless of whether or not one opts for the Z51 performance package. Car website, Autoblog broke down some of the new upcoming options arriving later this year, such as different choices in color and General Motors’ Buckle to Drive system that inactivates the car if the driver does not fasten his or her seat belt.

On a cosmetic stance, an all-new Full Length Dual Racing Stripe is now available, specifically with blue, orange, red, or yellow stripes. There is also a new gray and yellow color arrangement that has been added onto the list of options.

Furthermore, the latest Corvette model will keep its two-seat layout, but the interior is moved up a bit in order to house the mid-mounted engine. The cabin is lined with materials like leather, actual metal, and replica suede as well as a stitched headliner. Like the previous Corvettes, it will also include a removable roof, which fits in the vehicle’s trunk. Those who upgrade to the 3LT package are granted with premium-like materials like sewn leather on many interior surfaces, including carbon-fiber trim. 

Lastly, the 2021 Corvette offers two cargo areas, one in front of the passenger compartment and the other behind the engine, providing a total of 13 cubic feet of storage space. The company states that the car can fit two sets of golf clubs in the rear compartment when they are assembled on top of each other.

General Motors Presents A Special Corvette Mini-Me To New Owners

 

Corvette Owners New Gifts and Prizes

At long last, the wait for the C8 Corvette has come to an end. Chevrolet enthusiasts are hurrying their way to dealerships in hopes of snagging the next great American supercar in recent history. Both journalists and supporters have commenced the newest Corvette for its top-notch performance, superb handling, and ultimately its knockout appearance. Considering much that the C8 is a mid-engined vehicle is simply the icing on the cake, and can you get any better than that?

It appears that the Chevy family thinks that buying their latest sports car has isn’t enough, as they have found a way for shoppers to have a more individualized car buying experience. They’ve already brought in a Corvette expert at chosen dealerships of the brand, and now they’re presenting new Corvette owners with a free “Speed Shape Model” that parallels with the selected design of the buyers new C8, which is much better than a lame poster.

The traditionally truck-focused company previously offered their thanks to new Corvette owners with gifts like a special letter or the conventional teen-dream poster, but now the brand is making great strides to upgrade this experience by presenting its customers with a scale model of their particular car, painted in the same exact shade as their chosen model. Writer at Corvette Blogger, Jeremy Welborn conveys them as being “larger than the traditional 1:25 promotional models and a lot heavier as well.” Not to mention they look pretty cool too!

The buyer will find this gift presented in a small black box. The miniature Corvettes include a small badge placed on the front of the model and comes with an engraving of the owner’s VIN number.

The GM goodies don’t just stop at the personalized C8 models, the company also includes in the package a discount coupon for the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain. This coupon allows Corvette owners for the year to undertake a two-day high-performance driver education seminar at Spring Mountain for just $1,000, which saves possible attendees over $2,000. Seems reasonable enough, besides, one would surely want to make certain that they don’t destroy their new hot rod.

It is unclear whether or not the company is planning to continue this new venture for models succeeding the C8. However, we are early waiting on the arrival of the actual 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8, as well as the powerful 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, which will have active aerodynamics and a flat-plane crankshaft on its 5.5-liter V8 engine.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV: What To Expect

 

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV was quite a showstopper, as it was MotorTrends Car of the Year, unfortunately winning accolades doesn’t always guarantee authority in sales, especially since Tesla, who has become one of the most notable companies in their efforts of producing electric vehicles, released a car with a similar price. However, the Bolt EV is making a comeback for 2022 and is showing all of us that it’s not one to be dismissed. The refined SUV will get a revitalized look and will also bring a sister variant appearing as an oddly named Bolt “EUV” electric crossover.

The name “EUV” otherwise known as “Electric Utility Vehicle” seems like a relatively new term that Chevy is playing around with, which is creative in some ways but may take a while to gain some real traction. Since the EUV is longer than its companion EV, it might entice some shoppers who are looking for an EV that has a regular SUV style rather than one of a tall hatchback. The styling which is sure to be somewhat in agreement with the company’s signature style of design will also have a look that is glossier and sexier, and also potentially fixes the current Bolt’s shortcomings.

Formed upon the Bolt’s BEV2 structure, the EUV is elongated 3 inches between the wheels for more space in the interior with an overall 5 to 6 inches. Since the Bolt is already high in height, it’s likely that the EUV won’t grow any taller, although, the more upright type of structure will contribute to its SUV look. Also, the longer wheelbase will likely make space for a larger battery rather than the current standard 66-kW-hr pack. Ideally, the larger Bolt battery pack would enhance the range past the smaller model’s 259 miles, but since there are no intentions of adding a motor to the rear axle, there’s a strong probability that it will only come as a front-wheel-drive.

Since the Bolt EV and EUV will stay on the lineup of the BEV2, they will proceed to use the same battery and charging equipment instead of General Motors’ new Ultium batteries. This suggests that they will still be compatible with the DC fast charging, however, it may take a bit longer for these models to power up than the more developed Ultium batteries and will also have different capacity and range. On the flip side, by using the current technology, this will permit the EUV to come onto the market next year while the BEV3-established models and their batteries won’t be ready for another year.

The Bolt EUV will also include a variety of updates that are also being implemented in the standard Bolt like a refashioned interior said to be more upscale than…plastic-like. The company is already attending to numerous concerns regarding its current Bolt, involving improved seats, a more advanced infotainment system, and a push-button gear selector.

The new EUV will also include a few optional upgrades that the regular Bolt will not get, such as a sunroof and the highlighting Super Cruise, which is an extremely intricate cruise control system that allows drivers to take his or her hands off the wheel on the freeway and so far, this has only been available in Cadillacs.

Moreover, the 2020 Bolt EV has a starting price of roughly $37,000, (plus destination fee) and about $42,000, (plus destination fee) with its upgraded Premier trim. It’s likely that the 2022 version will come in with the starting price of the more upgraded Bolt variant.

The new Bolt model is set to go on sale in mid-2021 but in the meantime, shoppers can enjoy an incredibly low price of under just $30,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV LT at Miami Lakes Chevrolet. If you are interested in this vehicle or other models in our possession, please take a look at our new online car inventory and chat with an online representative for more assistance.

The Chevrolet Company Plays An Unintentional Game of “Peekaboo” With The Leak of The General Motors Document

 

The Chevrolet company better stay on its toes, because they have a big leak on their hands. Allegedly there has been an unintentional unearthing regarding the future plans of the company’s C8 Corvette. The specifics of this leak pretty much verify previous rumors about new divisions in the company’s calendar.

Hagerty, an automotive news outlet, disclosed Wednesday of last week (April, 22nd) that after retrieving a document by General Motors announced a standstill for the development of the future Corvette firmwide. Hagerty shared details from the document involving what could likely be impending for the mid-engine vehicle, and if it turns out to be true, there are four new Corvettes predestined in total.

According to the document, GM plans on bringing in the Corvette Z06, which is a great additive to the lineup. This vehicle will include a 5.5-liter dual-cam overtop V8 mounted, with LT6 navigation, and will boost an amazing 650 horsepower with 600 lb-ft of torque. It’s worth noting that there is no notion of a turbo or even supercharger just yet, and this mirrors with some of the specs from the Corvette’s C8.R racing car. The new model will also show off a 5.5-liter DOHC V8 sans forced induction. In accordance with the information, the Z06 is allegedly arriving in 2022, but the delays could push that date back a little.

In succession to this, the Corvette Grand Sport, which will have an engine that is relatively similar, which is a 6,2-liter LT2 V8. The Sport’s engine will continue to be standard from the Stingray. Nevertheless, there is a hybrid system discussed that boosts its performance to 600 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. This electrifying implementation seems to push the power by 105 points over the standard Stingray and is (or was…) scheduled for 2023.

What has been the most impressive of the Corvette ranking is the ZRI, which also has some notable specs. According to the document, this variant will get a 5.5-liter DOHC V8 again but this time with a twin-turbo system to push output to 850 horsepower and 825 lb-ft of torque. As previously stated, these are specifics that continue to follow talk that began going around years ago, providing a bit more believability. The ZRI has an original date for 2024.

What is not just new but also anticipated is the name of the Zora Arkus-Duntov. This model has been dubbed “the father of the Corvette” and worked on countless mid-engined prototypes in his time. The making of the C8 Corvette is mainly the awareness of years worth of ideas and mechanical concoctions. Therefore, it’s been whispered in great frequency that the name would exalt a new variant of the model in order to highlight its prestige.

In this event, it seems like the Zora will be the most energetic variant with a groundbreaking 1,000 horsepower with 975 lb-ft of torque. Based on the document, there should be a version of the LT7 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 and as a hybridized version. Unfortunately, there isn’t much more information explaining the precise degree of the Corvette’s electrification.

When asked about the leaked information, a spokesperson for the company told Roadshow “We are not going to engage in the speculation on potential future product”. However, we’re pretty much assuming that this information holds true, though, it might take a little while longer to get any real confirmation.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

Due to the delay from Chevy’s leak, it’s probable that we won’t see new Corvette variants for a while, but on the bright side, Miami Lakes Chevrolet currently has some updated Corvettes in their possession and one of them being the powerful Stingray, which can push close to 500 horsepower. If you are interested in any of our dynamic models, please view our online new car inventory on our dealership website and chat with an online representative for further assistance.
