Notes

  • The 2000 FRC model was replaced with the 2001 Z06 Hardtop model.
  • The LS1 engine increased in horspower from 345 to 350.
  • New thin-walled cast iron exhaust manifold replaced the stainless steel exhaust manifold to improve durability.
  • The driveshaft is upgraded from a metal-matrix composite to aluminum alloy 6061, and it is increased in diameter from 55 to 63 mm. Driveshaft couplings have also been upgraded on manual-equipped models for additional strength and durability.
  • By optimizing the design of the automatic transmission case Corvette engineers were able to trim some material and reduce thickness in some areas to reduce mass by 3.3 pounds.
  • All Corvettes, when equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission (optional on coupes and convertibles, standard on Z06) feature a revised clutch with greater clamping power to accommodate increased torque. This new clutch design also provides for lower pedal effort, making manual-equipped Corvettes more satisfying to drive.
  • Carbon blocker rings have been installed on all manual transmission forward gears to provide for smoother shifts and additional robustness.
  • The M12 6-speed manual transmission is unique to the Z06. It is the only transmission available for that model and is not available on the coupe or convertible. It has more aggressive gearing to increase torque multiplication in most forward gears, allowing for more rapid acceleration and more usable torque at higher speeds.
  • To further maximize the breathing capabilities of the LS6, and reduce vehicle mass significantly a new titanium exhaust system was developed for the Z06. This marks the first-ever use of titanium in the exhaust system of a mass-production vehicle.
  • A Second-Generation Active Handling system, much enhanced over the original, becomes standard equipment on all Corvettes.
  • Interior sound isolation has been improved on all Corvettes with the addition of expandable foam and/or new seals in strategic areas.
  • A new convertible top provides better sealing, better sound isolation, and a smoother appearance.
  • A new Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) battery, sometimes referred to as a “starve” battery, – which is lighter and more durable than the current Corvette battery – becomes the standard battery on all Corvette models.
