Strategy changes the next-generation Corvette has been planned by General Motors to attract more customers. Traditionally, the Corvette has always been offered with high-displacement eight-cylinder powertrains, but the C7 Corvette may also offer a small, turbocharged V8.
However, traditional V8 enthusiasts need not worry, as the story states that a full range of engines will be available, including the classic larger displacement units that have traditionally found a home in the Corvette.
Of course, the rumormill about exactly what’s in store for the C7 Corvette continues to swirl. We’ve heard everything from a mid-engine layout to a split rear window design that pays tribute to the 1963 ‘Vette. Whatever the case, GM just invested $131 million in the Bowling Green, Kentucky plant that builds the Corvette and the all-new model is expected to arrive within the next two to three years.
