Default C6 Corvette Changes year to year?

Hello,

I have been searching for information related to changes in the model years for C6 Corvettes.

I have found changes from 2005-2008. However, I am not able to find anything beyond.

Would someone please post the model year changes like someone did for the C5. The C5 changes are very well documented.

I know launch control was added in 2010.

Thank you.

Hmmm.....I think you're right.....someone (JimTN) should put together a comprehensive list of year to year changes now that we know all the C6 years. Jim? Oh Jim?

Anyway, here's what I have.


2008 - 2009:


2009 - 2010:

Note that although the 2009 to 2010 2LT went down by $350, the 2009 to 2010 3LT went up by $350.

ALREADY DONE! There's a link in Pewter99's sticky to my new thread that has all the links.

Try it - You'll like it.

Yes, I just realized it's not exactly what you were suggesting, but this way, you can select just the model year info. you want to see. All the links are on one page.
