The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Gets More Standard Features And No Price Increase

For the 2021 model year, the C8 Chevrolet Corvette gets more features, and no price increase


  • There will also be a number of new colours.

  • The Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension will be a stand-alone option.

  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard.


GM and Chevrolet are wisely working and building on the momentum behind the new C8 Corvette. We did not think the new Corvette could get any more desirable but with more standard features and no price increase from 2020, it has.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray First Drive Review

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette already had plenty going for it. The mid-mounted 6.2-litre LT2 V8, its 490 horsepower (495 optionally) and 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission had already proven to have the makings of a great performance car. The optional Z51 package brought the C8 to the next level with is upgraded brakes, suspension, exhaust (+5 hp) and more. The included Magnetic Selective Ride Control suspension will, as of 2021, be offered as a separate option.

Other changes include standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a new driver mode on-screen visualization and new track digital tachometer along with Buckle To Drive, a safety feature that prevents the driver from shifting the vehicle out of Park if the driver’s seat belt is not buckled.

There will be a selection of new exterior colours to opt from including Red Mist Metallic and Silver Flare Metallic. There will also be new full-length dual racing stripe package colours: Blue, Orange, Red, and Yellow. Stinger stripes will be available in three colour combinations: Carbon Flash/Edge Red, Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow and Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver. Finally, a new Sky Cool Gray/Yellow Strike interior colour combination will join the offered cabin décor options.

At one point, 2020 Corvette order holders must have been upset that they were not going to receive their car on time. There were production delays and the pandemic but we think all will be good as they will get the “improved” 2021 car.
