2016 Chevy Corvette Colorado Springs CO
Why are we obsessed with sports cars? What inspires us and attracts us to these impressive machines? Is it a primal need for a long-dormant adrenaline rush? A desire to transcend human capabilities via an advanced vehicle? A combination of both? Whatever the reasons, it's impossible to deny the sense of power derived from operating the 2016 Chevy Corvette in Colorado Springs CO. The Corvette continues to be an approachable yet exciting sports car that many drivers can realistically set their sights on -- for what you're getting, the 2016 Chevy Corvette represents a bargain among sports car enthusiasts and experts.
Chevy adds a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, a power-closing trunk and standard Apple CarPlay to the 2016 'Vette, making it significantly more high tech than it was in its 1950s infancy. There are some additional changes made to the upper trims for the 2016 model year, including adding front-view parking cameras. Able to throw down with industry leaders in sports car engine technology, like Porsche and BMW, the Corvette, whether you opt for the coupe or the convertible, seems to have finally come into its own and has outgrown its underdog status. Segment-leading power and an evolved sense of style cement this Corvette as the coolest kid on the block.
The 2016 Corvette offers five -- yes, five -- different drive modes that each alter the suspension, steering, throttle and transmission to produce an ideal driving experience: Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track.
2016 Corvette Stingray houses a 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The standard transmission is a 7-speed manual with automatic rev-matching -- and, hey, if you're still concerned about fuel economy at this point, Corvette will return around 20 mpg.
In addition to the standard 8-inch MyLink touchscreen and Apple CarPlay, there's also an available Performance Data Recorder that uses a built-in track camera and other hardware to track information about various acceleration and handling metrics.
