Base Corvette Sport Coupe (1YY07)

  • The base price of the 1992 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe without any optional equipment.
  • A 350 cubic inch, 300 horsepower engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, removable body-color roof panel, and black cloth seats were included in the base price.
  • The base engine for the 1992 Corvette was the LT1, a new generation small block. In 1992 Corvettes, the engine developed 300 horsepower (net) at 5,000 rpms. The engine torque was rated at 330 lbs. -ft at 4,000 rpm. Redline was 5,700 rpm, 700 higher than the L98 it replaced. GM introduced an automatic fuel cutoff at 5,850 rpms.
  • At 452 pounds, the 1992 LT1 outweighed the 1991 L98 base engine by 21 pounds, due in part to the replacement of stainless steel exhaust manifolds with cast iron.
  • Exterior appearance of the 1992 Corvette was virtually changed from the 1991 Corvette.
  • For the ZR-1 Corvette, “ZR-1” emblems were added above the side fender vents. Two rectangular exhaust outlets were used on both the ZR-1 and base models.
  • Traction control was standard for all 1992 Corvettes. Called Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR), it was created by Bosch and developed by Corvette engineers. It engaged with the ignition, but could be turned off by an instrument panel switch. ASR used engine spark retard, throttle close down, and brake intervention to limit wheel spin when accelerating. When on and active, a slight accelerator pedal pushback could be felt.

Base Corvette Convertible (1YY67)

  • The base price of the 1992 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible without optional equipment.
  • A 350 cubic inch, 300 horsepower engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, removable body-color roof panel, and black cloth seats were included in the base price.
  • The base engine for the 1992 Corvette was the LT1, a new generation small block. In 1992 Corvettes, the engine developed 300 horsepower (net) at 5,000 rpms. The engine torque was rated at 330 lbs. -ft at 4,000 rpm. Redline was 5,700 rpm, 700 higher than the L98 it replaced. GM introduced an automatic fuel cutoff at 5,850 rpms.

  • This option was included as part of the ZR1 package.

Performance Axle Ratio (G92)

  • Optional performance axle ratio of 3.07:1 or 3.33:1.
  • Was only offered when the Corvette was ordered with an automatic transmission.
  • The actual “Performance Axle Ratio” varied from year to year. The G92 Option was available when ordering either the Corvette or the Camaro throughout the 1980’s and early ’90’s.

Engine Oil Cooler (KC4)

  • Internal cooler used to cool internal components of the automobile’s internal combustion engine.

6-Speed Manual Transmission (MN6)

  • An optional, no-cost, 6-speed manual transmission.
  • The six-speed manual transmission was designed jointly by ZF (Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen) and Chevrolet and was initially built by ZF in Germany.
  • A computer-aided gear selection feature bypassed second and third gears (and locked out fifth and sixth) for improved fuel economy when a series of low performance criteria were met.

California Emission Requirements (NN5)

  • Revised emission/exhaust components to meet California Emission standards

Low Tire Pressure Warning Indicator (UJ6)

  • Low tire/air pressure monitoring and warning system.
  • Sensors strapped to each side of the inside of each wheel sent a radio signal to a instrument-panel receiver if pressure in any tire dropped below a preset limit.
  • This option was included as part of the ZR1 package.

Stereo System, Delco-Bose (UU8)

  • 200 watt Delco Bose AM/FM stereo radio with cassette.
  • A power delay feature was added to all models which permitted the stereo system and power windows to operate after the ignition was switched to “off” or “lock”. Power was cut after the driver’s door was opened or after 15 minutes, whichever came first.
  • The AM band for radios was expanded to receive more frequencies.

Stereo System with CD, Delco-Bose (U1F)

  • 200 watt Delco Bose AM/FM stereo radio with compact disc player.
  • This option was included as part of the ZR1 package.
  • To discourage theft, the CD player required an electronic security code input after battery disconnect.
  • A power delay feature was added to all models which permitted the stereo system and power windows to operate after the ignition was switched to “off” or “lock”. Power was cut after the driver’s door was opened or after 15 minutes, whichever came first.

Luggage Rack (convertible) (V56)

  • Optional luggage rack that was mounted to the rear decklid of the Corvette convertible.

Adjustable Suspension Package (coupe) (Z07)

  • Heavy Duty Suspension with Ride Control Selection.
  • This option included RPO FX3, heavy-duty suspension and heavy-duty brakes. Available with both automatic and manual transmissions.
  • Intended for aggressive driving or competition, the Z07 option was limited to coupes.

Special Performance Package (coupe) (ZR1)

  • Extensive performance upgrades to the base model Corvette.
  • The ZR1 option included unique bodywork (doors, rear quarters, rocker panels, rear fascia, and rear upper panel.)
  • ZR1 optioned Corvettes were fitted with special Goodyear Z-rated P315/35ZR17 tires that were mated to 11-inch wide rear rims.
  • The ZR1 option included a number of other RPO’s (normally listed separately) including: Power Passenger Seats (AC1), Power Driver Seats (AC3), Sports Seats, Leather (AQ9), Electronic Air Conditioning Control (C68), Selective Ride and Handling, electronic ( FX3), Stereo System with CD, Delco Bose (U1F), and Low Tire Pressure Warning Indicators (UJ6) and a specially laminated “solar” windshield were included. Additionally, the six-speed manual transmission (MN6) was required.
  • NOTE: During the model year, RPO AC1 was deleted from the ZR1 package and the price was reduced by $305.00.
  • The ZR1 was also fitted with a special LT5 engine (that was unique and limited to the ZR1 coupe.) The LT5 engine was designed with the same V-8 configuration and 4.4 inch bore spacing as the standard L98 engine, but was otherwise an all new Chevrolet/Lotus design with four overhead camshafts and 32 valves..
  • Despite extensive use of aluminum, the complexity of the LT5 engine caused it to weigh just under 40 pounds more than the base model iron-block engine.
  • Despite its similar appearance to the 1992 L98 Corvette, the ZR-1 still received unique doors and rear body panels to accept the 11-inch wide rear wheels. The high mount center stop lamp for the 1992 ZR-1s continued to be roof mounted.
  • The LT5 Engine produced 375 horsepower but still managed to avoid the EPA’s gas guzzler tax.
  • The LT5 Engines were assembled by Mercury Marine in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and were then shipped to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green Kentucky for ZR1 Corvette assembly.
  • Chevrolet service departments returned LT5 engines to Mercury Marine for certain repairs. Customers were given the choice of a replacement engine or return of their original engine, if repairable.
  • RPO K05 (Engine Block Heater) was not available when the ZR1 option was ordered.
  • The ZR1 option was only available in the coupe bodystyle.

Notes:

  • The 1-millionth Corvette, a white convertible, was built on July 2, 1992.
  • Instrument face panels were changed to all-black, replacing the 1990-1991’s grey-black.
  • The digital speedometer was relocated above the fuel gauge. Gauge graphics were refined for better legibility.
  • Corvette’s new LT1 engine utilized reverse flow cooling, the first such application at Chevrolet. Rather than route coolant from the water pump through the block to the heads, the LT1 routed coolant to the heads first. This permitted higher bore temperatures and reduced ring friction, and helped cooling around the valve seats and spark plug bosses.
  • Mobil 1 Synthetic Oil was factory fill for the LT1 and Chevrolet recommended its continued use by owners. An engine oil cooler was no longer available, proven unnecessary when synthetic oil was used.
  • New Goodyear GS-C tires were introduced as standard equipment on all 1992 Corvettes and were exclusive to Corvettes worldwide for 1992. The GS-C tread design was directional and asymmetrical.
  • Improvements in weather sealing were achieved with improved weatherstrip seals. Road noise reduction came from additional insulation in the doors and improved insulation in the transmission tunnel.
  • RPO K05 engine block heater was available with base engines and intended for Canada export only. In 1992, 368 were sold at $20.00.
