Let’s see what some recent Corvette models could look like so you have an idea of what to expect when you browse our used inventory.
The Sixth Generation Corvette (2005 to 2013)
Thought of as America’s one true automobile, the Corvette is the epitome of the sports car, having run for over 60 years with one of the world’s most well-known names. And the most recent generation continues that legacy.
When compared against the fifth generation, it’s clear that General Motors’ engineers had been busy, notably improving the performance of the vehicle, but the designers have given this generation an incredible new sense of style as well. Or rather a new old sense of style, bringing back exposed headlamps for the first time since ’62 and adding on a slimmer rear end and sharper fenders.
Standard models of this Corvette came with a 400 hp V8 engine, although there’s also a 7.0L 505 hp V8 that debuted in 2006. Upgrades and a refresh in 2008 brought a 430 hp 6.2L V8 as standard. Basically, no matter which one you find, you’ll get incredible style and power in one affordable package.
The Fifth Generation Corvette (1997 to 2004)
Although the Corvette has been a fan favorite for years, it was this generation that moved the vehicle from “favorite” to “truly amazing sports car.” Chevrolet made the vehicle more practical; older models were harder to get in and out of.
This was also the beginning of a new chassis that was built for an almost 50/50 distribution of weight between rear and front axles as well as an updated suspension. Sporting a roomier cabin with more comfortable seating, the 345 hp LS1 engine rounded out a series of updates that make the fifth-gen Corvette one of the most popular pre-owned models we get.
