The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe is the entry model always enhanced with a trim package that buyers are excited to buy. The top trim package is the 1LT which comes equipped with what many 2018 Chevrolet Corvette buyers are looking for. Fans of the 2018 Grand Sport prefer the 2LT over the 3LT and 1LT packages.

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette saw many changes and updates, including new technological features. All models now have the following enhancements: HD digital radio is standard, as is The Cosworth Toolbox, and the Performance Data Recorder with four additional data channels. As well as an improved rear-view camera featuring a much higher resolution and even wider angle, and finally an enhanced Head-Up Display rotation setting.

Changes to the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette also included more comprehensive data points which can control individual wheel speeds, suspension movements, yaw rate, and air temperatures. These all working together for the Performance Data Recorder. The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was fitted with a much better backup-camera feed and improved head-up-display adjustability.

The always popular Magnetic Ride Control with adaptive suspension, you can now get as a stand-alone option. The buyer is no longer required to purchase the Z51 performance package to get their hands on it.

New Chevrolet Corvette Mileage

Steering Wheel

Mileage

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette is surprisingly fuel efficient for what might be considered a gas-guzzling sports car. EPA-estimated 23 highway MPG in a muscle car is outstanding! The combined is 16 mpg which is still high considering it comes standard with an eight cyl, 6.2 L Automatic.

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette and sports cars like it are not typically known for being fuel efficient, but this can be a misconception. Typically, buyers aren’t looking for fuel economy when shopping for a sports car, but it’s nice to know that Chevrolet is working to make all of their cars more fuel efficient across the board.

Design

Not just with the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, but with other models, Chevrolet has seriously upped their game. The overall design of the sports car is updated and flashier. Chevrolet added five new wheel choices, one with a yellow stripe, and a handful of new interior and exterior color combinations. Here are some of the colors you can choose from Arctic White, Black, Torch Red, Watkins Glen Gray, Ceramic Matrix Gray, Ceramic Matrix Gray, Admiral Blue, Long Beach Red, Blade Silver, Corvette Racing Yellow, Black Rose, Corvette Racing Yellow, Black Rose, and Sebring Orange.

The interior is something to write home about, with the GT seat available in premium Napa leather seating surfaces that comes with the 3LT trim level. You can get the Competition Sport seat, with pronounced side bolsters. You will appreciate the precision hand stitching that is available in a variety of accent colors. Buyers love the look of the lightweight aluminum and carbon-fiber trim which add another level of refinement. And every sports car driver knows the appeal of a flat-bottom steering wheel that enhances the driving experience. And yes, these Corvettes are convertible models featuring fully electronic tops that can be lowered remotely, and even when the car is still moving. The functional hood air extractor reduces front-end lift. While sculpted Bi-Xenon HID headlamps give the desired amount of light out of both high and low beams.
