Today at the National Corvette Museum’s Bash Event, a virtual presentation from the Corvette Team included Executive Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juchter, Product Manager Harlan Charles, and also Corvette Chief Engineer Josh Holder who went through a recap of all the news from 2021 before turning their sights on the 2022 model year. However, their only new offering that was shown for the 2022 Corvette in addition to the three new exterior colors introduced on Thursday was a new low-profile spoiler for the 2022 Stingray.
Why the lack of news on the 2022 model year Corvettes? We personally think this confirms the Z06 will be offered as a 2022 model, but the team wasn’t quite ready to discuss it yet. But that is just speculation on our part. They did say that 2022 ordering should be ready to go in July and additional details will be forthcoming. We know that the 2022 Order Guide is expected sometime in May and that will give us a better idea of what is going to be offered for next’s year’s Corvette.
As for the new Low-Profile Spoiler, the RPO is TVS and can be ordered with or without the Z51 Performance Package. The graphic also shows that it includes a front splitter which would be for balancing the aero front and back. As it is listed as an RPO option, it would be factory-installed as well. Currently, no pricing was offered yet for the new spoiler, nor were there any details if it’s available only in body color or Carbon Flash Metallic.
We do have the slides from today’s presentation and will be sharing them in a separate post.
