To celebrate 70 years, the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is available in a new 70th Anniversary Special Edition. Features include an engine cover, brake calipers, and wheel stripes in Edge Red, plus unique badging and logos, racing stripes, a red-stitched interior, and a White Pearl Metallic Tricoat or Carbon Flash Metallic paint job. And all 2023 Corvette Stingray models receive a 70th anniversary interior plaque and rear window graphic.
The 2023 Corvette Stingray’s mid-engine design allows for greater agility, better weight distribution, and stickier traction. The 6.2-liter V8 engine delivers 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, and it’s matched by a quick-shifting eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and a four-wheel independent suspension. For even more powerful performance, the Stingray can be equipped with the Z51 Performance Package, which adds an upgraded exhaust, brakes, and suspension, plus an electronic limited-slip differential and a special rear spoiler — giving drivers 495 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds.
The dramatic design of the Corvette Stingray makes an instant impression. The aerodynamically enhanced exterior incorporates large side air intakes, available multi-spoke forged aluminum wheels, and menacing LED projector headlamps. A unique rear window opening showcases the engine positioned behind the driver’s seat. Coupe configurations come with an available transparent roof panel, while convertibles receive a retractable hardtop. For 2023, 14 paint color options are available, including Amplify Orange Tint, Caffeine Metallic, and Accelerate Yellow.
The Corvette Stingray enables comfortable high-performance driving with features like power-adjustable GT1 bucket seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a racing-style flat top and bottom, and a Rear Camera Mirror. Interior upholstery and color options include Mulan or Napa leather in Jet Black, Adrenaline Red, and Sky Cool Gray. The new Stealth Interior Trim Package displays dark-finished aluminum accents for the speaker grille, console trim plate, and air vents. Meanwhile, dual front and rear trunks provide a combined 12.6 cubic feet of storage space.
Infotainment and safety tech
For connectivity on road or track, the 2023 Corvette Stingray comes standard with an 8-inch color touch screen, a 12-inch digital driver display, and features like wireless smartphone integration and cloud-connected personalization settings. A 10-speaker Bose premium sound system is included as well, and all trim levels offer a performance data and video recorder.
