With the obvious competition atmosphere between Chevrolet and General Motors about their muscle super ride production, the news about 2019 Corvette is always intriguing. There are some good reasons for it. First of all, it is about time that Ford has been thinking about such a development. Second, it should be interesting to see the competition between Camaro and Corvette, the two big and legendary names in the industry. And third, being able to see each car’s performance is something worth waiting for.
Some of the updates about the upcoming 2019 Corvette is about GM’s decision to finally mount the engine behind the passenger (and also driver’s) sides. The spyshots about the new design have been available within the last few months, showing off the car’s heavily cloaked design and silhouette. It seems that Chevrolet and their mid-engine production takes a more conventional look in the supercar disguise. Such a thing is important for auto enthusiasts and lovers because it is time for Corvette to have an improved feature since the addition of the V8 engine back then in 1995 – which happened quite a long time ago.
Some of the Important Changes
It seems that there are a lot of things to expect from this new 2019 Corvette, starting from the different plans of the platform. Originally, the Corvette will be using the new platform but Johan de Nysschen, the CEO, decided that they would make the XLR return to the arena so they had to make a change of it. For the new Corvette, the small block engine was originally designed to be used but then the mid-engine arrangement seems like the most idea option. With the V8 32 valve, it is also possible that a new hybrid may come in the line. And since Corvette will be facing some of the biggest competitors like R8 from Audi, 488GTB from Ferrari, Huracan LP610-4 from Lamborghini, 911 from Porsche, F-type from Jaguar, and 718 Cayman from Porsche, it is only logical if the arrangement, design, and plan have been executed in the most careful approach only.
Release Date and Price
The plan for the price tags and release date can change – depending on the situation. However, it is expected that the new Corvette should arrive right around 2018, set to be 2019 model. Up until now, there hasn’t been any official confirmation about the price but the new 2019 Corvette should start from around $80,000.
