News Next-Generation C9 Chevrolet Corvette Coming in 2029

Next-Generation C9 Chevrolet Corvette Coming in 2029

The good news is that the C9 Corvette is expected to get a petrol engine

  • The paint’s barely dried on the C8 and we’re already on the C9.

  • Although still relatively rare, the C8 launched for the 2020 model year.

  • The C9 will debut in 2028.

It really does seem weird to be talking about the next generation of America’s sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette. The current-generation C8 was launched barely three years ago and already we have dates and a few details on its replacement, the C9.

The 2024 Corvette E-Ray Will Arrive this Year with AWD and an Electrified Drivetrain

The last few months have been about the extraordinary Z06 as deliveries have begun in masse and, more recently, the unveiling of the quickest Corvette of all time, the AWD hybrid E-Ray. And there’s still much more to come including the Corvette name branching off and becoming its own brand.

In the middle of all this is news that the next iteration, which will be known as the C9, is headed our way for the 2029 model year. According to GM Authority, the next ‘Vette will ride on an updated C8’s GM Y2 platform and still feature a petrol engine. GM recently announced that it will invest in new V8 engines, so the claim is very believable. This is good news and means that it will not be related to the upcoming Corvette EV sedan and Corvette EV crossover currently in development.

Corvette to Become a Brand with Sports Cars, SUVs, and a Sedan

The all-electric C8 Corvette is still in the works and should be assembled on GM’s BEV Prime Architecture which will underpin EVs for both Cadillac and Buick. We’re also looking forward to the twin-turbo C8 ZR1 and the ultra-high-performance C8 Zora expected in the next year or two.
