2022 Chevrolet Corvette for Sale in Springfield, MA
Trims and Mechanical Specifications
Chevrolet sells the 2022 Corvette in three trims – 1LT, 2LT, or 3LT – with each offered as a coupe or hardtop convertible. The 6.2-liter V8 cranks out 490 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, but the optional Z51 Performance Package will add 5 horsepower and 5 lb.-ft. of torque. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic is the sole transmission, and as always, all Corvettes are rear-wheel drive. The EPA estimated fuel economy for the is 15 mpg around town and 27 mpg on the open road.
Features, Options, and Performance Upgrades
The 1LT is a well-equipped sports car, getting eight-way power leather-trimmed GT1 seats, a digital instrument cluster, dual-zone automatic climate control, a removable roof panel (coupe), a power-retractable hardtop (convertible), 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear) aluminum wheels with run-flat performance tires, and LED headlights. Chevy also adds remote start, proximity keyless entry, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, and a limited-slip rear differential.
The 2LT’s upgrades are many, staring with a performance recorder that captures driving data and video. It also gets a rearview mirror that switches between a conventional reflecting surface and a digital camera display, power- seat bolsters and lumbar support, a seat-position memory system for both occupants, a head-up display, wireless device charging, and infotainment and safety upgrades which are detailed below. Based on availability, the LT2 may include heated and ventilated seats and a heated steering wheel. The 3LT takes the Corvette’s cabin to the next level with sport seats with carbon-fiber accents (these are optional on the 2LT). There’s also a leather upholstery upgrade and leather covering for the upper instrument panel, door trim panels, and console cover. Microfiber covers the steering wheel and headliner.
Beyond a choice of trims, the 2022 Corvette offers enhancements that let owners individualize their cars. Most notably among these upgrades is the Z51 Performance Package, which gives the Corvette track-ready capabilities by adding Brembo brakes, a specially tuned suspension, performance ratio rear axles, an electronic limited-slip differential, a performance exhaust, a unique front splitter and rear spoiler, a heavy-duty cooling system, and high-performance summer run-flat tires. Many of those Z51 features are available as individual options. Other add-ons include magnetic ride control, a front lift system (to avoid scraping the front end on speed bumps), numerous wheel choices, and competition sport bucket seats (for improved support during performance driving).
