Standard in Z06 and Grand Sport and included in Stingray with the Z51 Performance Package, Corvette features a dry-sump oil system, whereby oil is pumped into the engine from a 9.8 quart-capacity tank within the engine bay, ensuring oil flow to critical areas is not affected by high g-force cornering. The Corvette oil system is also enhanced by eight oil-spraying jets in the engine block, which reduce piston temperature for extreme output and long-term durability.
Necessary for Direct Injection, the high-pressure fuel pump is mounted in the valley of the cylinder block underneath the intake manifold. This results in less noise, better packaging efficiency and extremely dense power supply.
The LT1 and LT4 use unique aluminum-alloy pistons with a structure designed for the more intense cylinder pressures that come with forced induction. The pistons have a unique head topography that is essential to the Direct Injection system.
Both Stingray and Grand Sport draw their power from a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine that offers a staggering 460 horsepower†, 465 lb.-ft. of torque†, and 0 to 60 times of 3.7 seconds† for Stingray and 3.6 seconds† for Grand Sport. Throw in the world’s fastest-acting suspension and a distinctive rear transaxle that helps them achieve optimal weight balance, and you see why Stingray and Grand Sport each embody the Corvette spirit of precision perfection.
Corvette Z06 stands out in the realm of supercars thanks to a 6.2L LT4 supercharged V8 aluminum engine. Delivering 650 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, it offers the type of performance you should expect from a car with racing in its DNA.
The LT4 supercharger displaces 1.7 liters and features a four-lobe rotor design that promotes efficient performance. For 2017, the intercooler cover has been modified and the intercooler bricks repositioned in the housing for improved flow efficiency.†
Designed for greater packaging efficiency, the LT4 supercharger is
more compact and approximately 20 pounds lighter than its
predecessor. The small packaging aids performance, handling and
fuel economy, while enabling a low hoodline for improved visibility.
The LT4 intake manifold is integrated with the supercharger for one efficient assembly. The manifold utilizes advanced noise damping features and is paired with an electronically controlled throttle featuring a contact-free sensor for more durability and control.
Corvette features an available 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission with a close-ratio gear spread for blindingly fast shifts and improved fuel economy. Those who prefer a conventional shift can revel in the standard 7-speed manual with Active Rev Match, a smart system that provides smooth shifting using engine throttle blips.
