2018 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Reviews
The Chevrolet Corvette is largely unchanged for 2018. The lineup includes Corvette Stingray, Corvette Grand Sport, and Corvette Z06, each as a coupe or convertible. Each one gives rise to hell, takes a name, and does it for a low price, given its ability.
We rate the Corvette 7.8 out of 10, as it is mostly on extreme performance and generous features. It loses points for comfort and gas mileage
Corvette C7 sits wide and low, and wears a lot of spoons and channels. The supercar air is there, but we’re a bit tired of seeing the busy touch. The cockpit is not as hard as a body, but it can be very well trimmed.
All corvettes degrade hardcore performance. The backs of the race and mid-line sport Grand Sport 455-hp (460 hp with optional exhaust performance) 6.2-liter V-8. The Stingray can have a Z51 package that adds rigid suspension, upgraded brakes, differential electronic slip-limited, and aerodynamic tweaks. The Grand Sport has a wider back end that receives higher performance tires. It also gets some bits of Z06 handling and an aerodynamic package.
Z06 Tower above the other Corvette with a 6.2 liter V-8, 650 hp and 650 lb-ft supercharged torque. A 7-speed manual fits automatically on downshifts. Optional, 8-speed fast automatic shifting has paddle-wheel paddle shifters. The Z07 package at Grand Sport and Z06 transforms the cars into highly controlled track specialists.
The Corvette has room for a pair of large adults, and space for their bags under stained glass. Supported seating gets upgraded to a sports bucket for the track model. Convertibles have an automatic roof that opens or closes below 30 mph.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette Design
The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette exterior is very stylish, maybe too much, though the interior does not have enough character.
For seven generations, the Chevrolet Corvette only had the courage to style. The C5 and C6 generations flow naturally from one to the next.
C7 does not stray far from its basic form, but is much more open. It has a real scoop addiction. At the same time, details of features such as rounded taillights have been rotated. It is a search engine attention, and is drawn like that.
We gave Corvette an 8 for styling. The body that captures is not for everyone’s taste,
While the interior is like a tick above the average
Corvette takes time to glance from the first glance. The long and low seats, the sharp sweeping windshield, and the rear end of the cliff, all carried on since the C4 generation. C7 has many sharp folds and smooth curves, intersecting and curving plane. It has an almost exotic look, but is also busy with details in colors other than black. Will it use a good decade from now? In the price range of $ 60,000 – $ 100,000, immortality is virtue.
C7 interior steps complement the Corvette game. The design is not as firm as the exterior. The cockpit is wrapped with soft-touch material, and a higher trim can provide true luxury accommodation.
From a design standpoint, the driver’s cabin is focused and simple. The center of the pedestal leads to the driver with a large handle from the dashboard to the center console for passengers to reach while driving aggressively. Both the center pile and instrument cluster have a high-tech feel that makes it clear Corvette is all about performance. The carbon-fiber surround panel panel looks like a supercar trim, and rich suede and leather trim and upholstery are available to tidy up the cabin with the designer effect. The Porsche 718 cabin may still be a cut above, but not that big.
2018 Chevrolet Corvette Performance
Each Corvette is a direct offer, but Grand Sport stands out as the best value and Z06 puts up a supercar number.
Chevrolet Corvette has earned a reputation as a performance offer and a better C7 generation. With the addition of the Grand Sport for 2017, Chevrolet adds another value to its performance portfolio. Buyers can choose three price points to get unmatched performance for the dollar.
The most affordable is Stingray with Z51 handling package, in the middle is the Grand Sport which is equipped Z07, and above is Z06 with Z07 upgrade. All three are amazing combinations of power and grip, and they justify our Performance appraisal of the perfect 10.
The 6.2-liter V-8 Corvette-GM LT1 base engine produces a healthy 455 hp (or 460 hp with available performance exhaust) and creates great sounds along the way. V-8 gives a lot of grunt, pushing the car from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds with 7 speed manual or 3.7 seconds with automatic 8 speeds available. It runs a quarter mile in just 11.9 seconds with automatic or 12.0 seconds with the manual.
The Grand Sport transforms the Corvette into a ready-made road car. It combines a Stingray drivetrain with wider rear end that can accommodate high-performance tires, and add aerodynamic package. Traction added down time from 0-60 mph to as low as 3.6 seconds and a quarter-mile time to 11.8 seconds at 118 mph. (Read more about the Corvette Grand Sport on our first drive.) Add the Z07 package for about $ 8,000, and Grand Sport get a Magnetic Selective Ride Control damper, carbon-ceramic brakes, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires, and more. Aggressive aero package
At the top of the stack is the Z06 with a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 LT4 that spins out 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. With manual, it can click 3.2 seconds 0-60 mph running, while auto cutting that time up to 2.95 seconds is amazing.
GM says 8-speed automatic shifts are fast enough to beat PDK Porsche by 80 milliseconds. It’s very fast, whether you click on the paddle or let the computer determine the gear. It does not seem any slower than a slick manual, which gives Corvette something to think about when completing their car.
The Corvette puts power onto the sidewalks well, especially in Z51 and Z06 cars, which get an electronically driven back differential. Add to the Chevy Performance Trace Management system, which adjusts the stability control in various modes to power the car or let it kick its tail, all with the aim of increasing traction speed and cornering speed.
With an aluminum-intensive structure, the Corvette is raised for performance. It is capable of more than 1 g of lateral grip, the angle is flat, and the steering of electrical assistance is accurate with surprising feedback levels. This makes for an addictive driving experience for the enthusiast driver, who can boast a Corvette C7 running in a car that costs twice the price or more.
Convertible Corvette has little compromise in performance. In fact, even the Z51, Grand Sport, and Z06 work just like a mini laptop. That’s because Chevrolet engineered the Corvette C7 as a roadster from the beginning, so it does not sacrifice any structural integrity.
