CORVETTE ENGINES

The pinnacle of power and precision

Engineered to deliver world-class levels of power and precision, the 2019 Corvette Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06 and ZR1 are propelled by race-proven technologies that stand toe-to-toe with the most exotic performance vehicles on the planet.

Direct injection

Direct injection increases torque, power and fuel efficiency, while reducing exhaust emissions. How? Unlike typical fuel systems, gasoline is injected directly into the cylinder, resulting in more efficient fuel delivery and better combustion.

Continuously variable valve timing

The Gen 7 Corvette engine features a unique dual-equal phaser, which adjusts camshaft timing at the same rate for both intake and exhaust valves. This improves low-rpm torque and high-rpm horsepower, while working with Active Fuel Management™ to bolster fuel economy.

Active Fuel Management™

Designed for peak power when you need it and fuel efficiency when you don’t, this sophisticated engine controller deactivates four cylinders in lighter-load conditions, such as highway cruising and leverages all eight cylinders during aggressive driving. Not available on ZR1 models.

Dry-sump oil system

Standard in ZR1, 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.

HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL PUMP

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.

FORGED-ALUMINUM PISTONS

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.

The power of perfection

Both Stingray and Grand Sport draw their power from a 6.2L LT1 V8 engine, offering an astounding 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 Magnetic Ride Control™ and a distinctive rear transaxle that helps them achieve optimal weight balance, and you see why Stingray and Grand Sport embody the Corvette spirit of precision perfection.

LT1 by the numbers

LT1 Engine: 6.2L V8 | 460 HP | 3.7 0-60

A race-proven bloodline

Corvette Z06 stands out on the track 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.

LT4 Z06 by the numbers

LT4 Z06 Engine: 6.2L V8 Supercharged | 650 HP | 650 lb./ft.

Supercharged for superior performance

The LT4 supercharger displaces 1.7 liters and features a four-lobe rotor design that promotes efficient performance. An integrated intercooler further increases performance by cooling the massive amounts of air breathed into the heart of this precision machine.

Smaller size, bigger results

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.

Integrated manifold and throttle body assembly

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.

The most powerful production Corvette ever made

ZR1 boasts a hand-assembled LT5 small block 6.2L V8 engine capable of a staggering 755-horsepower and 715 lb.-ft. of torque. Supercharged for maximum power, this engine delivers over 600 lb.-ft. of torque from 2200 rpm to redline and delivers a top speed of 212 mph.

IT LIVES AND BREATHES ON THE TRACK

The largest Eaton® supercharger to date delivers peak boost pressure of 13 psi and 52% larger displacement than the LT4 supercharger. With high-flow-efficiency 4-lobe design rotors, it maintains peak effectiveness at higher speeds.

DUAL FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM

A Chevrolet first, the new Dual Fuel Injection system uses a port fuel rail and injectors, in addition to the Direct Injection system, to provide supplemental fueling during extreme throttling.

Two world-class transmission options

Corvette features an available 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission with a close-ratio gear spread for blindingly fast shifts. 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. The manual transmission is recommended on Z06 for extended track usage at higher ambient temperatures.

  • The 8-speed transmission offers full manual control via steering wheel paddles, while unique algorithms deliver shift performance that rivals the dual-clutch/semiautomatic transmissions found in many supercars.
  • The 7-speed manual clutch system features a lightweight dual-mass flywheel and high-capacity twin-plate 240 mm clutch, significantly reducing gear rattle and clutch inertia, respectively.
  • Corvette features a rear transaxle that improves weight distribution, keeping the car more evenly balanced during acceleration, turning and hard braking.
