Maximizing Performance: New Details and Upgrades for 2012 Corvettes

Next weekend’s C5/C6 Bash at the National Corvette Museum is the annual confab where GM and the Corvette Team introduce the changes on the new model-year Corvette. However, that presentation appears to have been somewhat preempted by the release of information from a Chevy dealer on the Corvette Forum which details the changes and upgrades coming on the 2012 Corvette.

Where 2011 was about personalization, you can say that 2012 is all about maximizing performance, especially at the higher end of the model lineup. ZR1 gets a new performance package while Z06 gets some more of ZR1′s tech. New wheels, R-Compound Michelin cup tires and a new 9-speaker stereo are just some of the option boxes that buyers will be checking off starting this summer.

There’s a lot to go through so we’re going to list the options and then we’ll come back around to analyze and discuss with you. As the t-shirt says, “Sit down, shut up and hang on” as we take you through the list of upgrades and changes for the 2012 Corvette.

The new color is an existing Chevy color called “Ice Blue Metallic” and can be seen on the 2011 Cruze. We think the color reminds us of the 1982 color called Silver Blue Metallic or the Light Blue Metallic offered in 1984-85.

Chevrolet Unveils 2012 Centennial Edition Corvettes

2012 Chevy Sonic Selling Point: Suspension Tuned by Corvette Engineers

General Motors rolled out the new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic models earlier this week at the Detroit Auto Show. The sedan and hatchback models are powered by either a 1.8 liter four-cylinder or the Ecotec 1.4L turbo rated at 138 horsepower. But it was the suspensions we found interesting.
