Everything You Want to Know About the 2016 Corvette, All in One Place.
Since its introduction in 2014, the Corvette Stingray has proven time and again to be one of the most powerful, most performance-driven, most track-capable Corvettes of all time. The 2014 Corvette received more than twenty automotive industry awards in its inaugural year and earned another spot in 2015 on the coveted “10 Best” from Car and Driver magazine.
As Chevrolet prepared for the arrival of the 2016 Corvette Stingray, there was little doubt that the car’s third-year offerings would only continue to enhance a car that, by all accounts, was already at the pinnacle of what a Corvette could – and should – become.
The 2016 Corvette Stingray was the first in the seventh-generation lineup not to include a special edition. Wherein the 2014 Corvette included 500 units of the Premiere Edition Corvette Stingray, and the 2015 included both the Atlantic and Pacific Design Packages, the 2016 Corvette coupe and convertible would not include any specific special edition packages.
Instead, Chevrolet introduced three all-new, color-themed design packages for the 2016 model year. Finished in either Twilight Blue, Spice Red or Jet Black Suede, the special color-themed design packages offered consumers a custom-tailored appearance package that helped to elevate the Stingray’s presence both on the street and on the track. Additionally, each of the customized appearance packages reflected the different roles the Corvette represented in different customer experiences – from high-performance driving to grand touring cruising.
