This new Corvette car 2016 type is made for those of you who are a fan of the Chevrolet Corvette, although they share the same name, but there more than just one Chevrolet Corvette. What we are going to discuss here is the different types of the new Corvette, in which we will specifically look for the specification of the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Z06. Both cars are Corvettes, but both cars have different specification; they are not even using the same engine so it is understandable that these cars are priced differently. The 2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray is more affordable with $55.400, and the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 is $79.400.
New Corvette Car 2016 Type; Stingray and Z06
We will begin with the newest Chevy Corvette Stingray, the cheaper of the two, this car is a sport car through and through, the design of the Stingray is a traditional sport car mixed with the modern taste; it embodied the Corvette car design. To be fair, the design of both the Stingray and the Z06 is the same, but the Stingray is the lighter of the two, in which it has only 3298 pounds for its base weight, the Stingray is also slightly taller, but the difference is only about 0.2 inch.
Now let us take a look at its engine, the base 2016 Chevrolet Stingray is capable of 455 horsepower and 460 pound feet of torque, it has 6.2L V8 engine with awesome sound. It is said that this car can reach 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, it is very impressive considering how much this car cost and you will not be able to find a better car in terms of performance in that price range. The engine is not very fuel efficient though, but who buy a sport car for its fuel efficiency anyway; just for information the Stingray is 17 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
As said before, you will not be able to spot a lot of differences between the Stingray and the Z06 in terms of its design; for both interior and the exterior, but there are slight differences here and there to make sure that the Z06 can fit perfectly with its different engine. That is right this new Corvette car engine is entirely different to the Stingray, it is significantly more powerful compared with that car. It is not even a competition, but looking at the Corvette car price point for both of these new Corvette types, you expect that the Z06 is faster, but no one expect that the difference of power is this big. The 6.2L v8 engine of the Z06 is capable of generating 650 horsepower and 650 pound feet of torque in which it can reach 60 mph in less than 3 seconds.
As you can see, although the Z06 is almost 50% more expensive, it is also a lot faster and stronger than the Stingray, but in case you do not get it, the Z06 engine will eats up a lot more gas than the Stingray. That is it for the current new Corvette car 2016 type information, hope it help you decide which one to buy.
