2015 Chevrolet Corvette at Scotti's Auto Sales Sarasota

Like all other automobile models, Corvette vehicles undergo changes each year. Depending on what you’re looking for in a Corvette, one model year may be more ideal for you than another. For example, in 2005, the Corvette coupe and convertible body styles were introduced. Additionally, a 6.0-liter, 400-horsepower engine powered the vehicle.

In 2006, a 7.0-liter LS7 V-8 engine that generates 505 horsepower was introduced. Additionally, a paddle-shifted six-speed automatic transmission and a new three-spoke steering wheel become part of the base coupe and convertible versions.

In 2009, a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V-8 engine became available, which generates 638 horsepower and links to a six-speed manual gearbox with a dual-disc clutch.

If you’re interested in exclusive design elements, consider hunting for a 2012 Corvette. This year marked the new Centennial Edition, which came in a Carbon Flash metallic exterior paint color, featured satin-finish wheels, and had unique graphics. A new seat was also introduced this year, which improves lateral support.

In addition to the unique offerings of each model year, you can also shop for pre-owned Corvette vehicles that are equipped with packages. The Oliver Gavin Edition package adds Shadow gray exterior paint with a Torch Red center stripe and Torch Red hash marks to the Corvette. This package also includes Carbon Flash mirrors, black wheels with red stripes and red brake calipers, and an Adrenaline Red interior with red seat belts.
