Designed to dominate

grip than Stingray

the engine, brakes, transmission
and differential

• The rear has been widened by 80

Light and rigid materials

Lighter frame

One-third the weight of steel, the
Stingray aluminum space frame is 100
pounds (45 kilograms) lighter than its
predecessor. The weight savings make
Stingray light and lean, ready to take
on any road with precision.

Stiffer than steel

The aluminum space frame and rails enable tailored gauge, shape and strength properties with minimal weight. In fact, the all-aluminum space frame is 57% stiffer than the previous-generation Stingray.

Bowling Green Assembly

Every 2016 Corvette Stingray is built by
experienced craftsmen using state-of-the
art materials and processes that have
been refined at our Bowling Green
Assembly Plant.

Safety

Stingray employs a host of safety technologies to help keep you safe before, during and after a possible collision, including an available head-up display that projects critical information onto your windshield so you can keep your eyes on the road.

Stingray helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling, 4-wheel antilock brakes and Traction Control. Standard Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps help visibility by emanating 900 lumens of light. And if Stingray ever loses tire pressure, run-flat tires enable safe functioning at a moderate speed until the tire can be repaired.

In the event of a collision, Stingray is designed to help keep you and your passengers safe with seat-mounted head and thorax air bags and a rigid aluminum frame structure that is lighter and stiffer than that found in previous-generation Corvette models.

You’re never alone with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location – even if you’re unable to respond. Standard for the first six months.
