Back at the end of March, we learned through a leak about some of the upcoming changes for the Chevrolet Corvette that are in store for the 2021 model year. In addition to two new exterior colors, Red Mist Tintcoat and Silver Flare, the leak detailed several new full-length body stripes and stinger graphics for the mid-engine Corvette’s sophomore year.
As Chevrolet prepares to put out additional 2021 model year information ahead of the July 30th start to orders, they have released a new teaser on their Facebook channels featuring a quick preview:
The preview is so quick, GM suggests you “Don’t Blink” at the beginning as you might miss it. Lucky for you that we are able to slow it all down to pull the relevent graphics from the video.
Currently, the 2020 model year features three fill length dual racing stripe packages in Carbon Flash Metallic, Midnight Gray and Sterling Silver. Joining those packages in 2021 are new stripe colors in Orange, Red, Yellow and Blue:
As far as 2021 model year changes go, this teaser only shows the four new colors of the dual racing stripes. Chevrolet is also bringing back the Stinger Stripe, but we have yet to see how it will be applied. The Stinger was the center hood location on the previous generation’s front-engine Corvettes, and we assume this graphic will somehow be applied to the front of the car only.
In addition to the exterior colors and stripes, Chevrolet will offer two new 3LT seat combinations called “Strike Yellow/Sky Cool Gray” and “Leather Jet Black with Sky Cool Gray”, as well as a special edition package called the “Stingray R”.
As we get closer to the 2021 order books opening on July 30th, we expect to see another teaser or two and then the official 2021 Order Guide will be made public. Finally, 2021 model pricing will be released that details pricing for the new model year’s options and packages.
