How-To Tuesday: C7 Corvette Specifications
The C7 Corvette Stingray was one of the most anticipated generations of Corvette to ever be released. The specifications and options on this car have been nothing short of fantastic (in most opinions). Some of you likely have all of the details on the C7 memorized, most of you likely do not. Fortunately for the latter, our crack writing team has taken on some of the legwork for you with this week’s How-To Tuesday article, appropriately titled, “C7 Corvette: Specifications by Trim.”
There are a lot of features that set apart one Corvette from another in this most recent generation. The challenge is that from the outside, those features can be difficult to spot. One of the more easily recognizable options, sorta, is the roof panel. The 1LT package does not come with a visible carbon fiber roof panel with body-color surround. So if you are quick on your toes, you’ll be able to at least know if you’re looking at a 1LT or a 2/3LT Corvette. Beyond that specification, you’re going to have a challenge differentiating the differences from one trim package to the next.
In some ways General Motors has made the C7 Corvette one of their best ever, with regard to options. The difference between what makes a 1LT and 3LT Stingray are minor options. Meaning that you could, in theory, order a 2LT Corvette and option it out with everything 3LT. But if you were planning on doing that, why wouldn’t you just order the fully optioned car in the 1st place?
I suppose the moral of the story is this: if you’re going to order a Corvette, go the distance. It may be one of the larger purchases you’ll ever make, so make it a decision you will never regret.
