The 2021 Chevy Corvette looks the same, but it comes with new tech and new paint options

LISTEN 02:08

The C8-generation Chevrolet Corvette was off to a rough start due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The production shut down not only delayed deliveries, but also shortened the 2020 model year run and postponed upcoming versions of the sports car. But the factory is now back to full throttle and Chevrolet is rolling out 2021 model year cars. The good news is that they come with a few upgrades.

On the outside, the 2021 Corvette looks the same, but you can choose between two new paint finishes. There’s Silver Flare Metallic and Red Mist Metallic. While the former isn’t exactly spectacular, the latter is a bright, somewhat darker shade of metallic red that highlights the car’s design.

Chevy also added new color options for the full-length stripes, a hood Stinger stripe, and a Jake Stinger racing hood stripe.

The interior also remains unchanged, but there are a few upgrades to talk about in the tech department. For starters, the 2021 Corvette comes standard with a Buckle to Drive feature. This means that you can’t shift into Drive if the seatbelt isn’t on. However, you can turn this feature off through the infotainment menu. The Z Mode also comes with new features and you can now hit PTM mode by pressing the Z button on the steering wheel twice.

Updates to the infotainment display include new graphics, as well as enhanced drive mode customization with new menus for Z Mode and My Mode setups. The 2021 Corvette also comes with small changes on the radio station menu, also enhanced by better looking graphics, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for improved connectivity.

Deliveries for the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette kick off in January 2021. Pricing starts from $59,995 for the coupe and from $67,495 for the convertible model. Check out the video below for a detailed review of all the changes for the 2021 model year.
