The order books for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette have already closed, but the 2021 model is just around the corner. While the 2021 version of the C8 isn’t going to see any substantial changes, there are a number of small items to keep things interesting.
Unquestionably the biggest change on the 2021 model is the fact that Magnetic Ride Control suspension is now a standalone option, according to this Corvette Owners group on Facebook. This is significant has the 2020 Corvette had the FE2 Magnetic Ride Control suspension bundled with the Z51 package. Given how sought after this particular option is, buyers will appreciate this change.
Dealership order guides are also showing a few color changes for 2021. Silver Flare and Red Mist Tintcoat will be added to the roster, canceling out Blade Silver Metallic and $995 Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat. Those two colors and the rest of the car’s dozen color options can be complemented with new full-length stripe packages, including a new Stingray R package that gives the pedestrian C8 a look similar to the C8.R.
Inside, top-level 3LT buyers can now opt for two new interior color themes, Strike Yellow with Sky Cool gray inserts or Jet Black with Sky Gray inserts.
While details of the 2021 Corvette are starting to trickle out, it is worth mentioning that the price tag has not. Expect some incremental increases to the 2020 car’s $59,999 starting point.
