2014 Chevrolet Corvette gets first teaser





Is there a more hotly anticipated 2013 Detroit Auto Show debut than the next Corvette? We don't think so, and while we're woefully short on details – powertrain, price, performance – we can at least bask in the glow of a nicely filmed teaser video. The first of many, we imagine.

Let's take a minute to dissect what's going on here. We see artists scraping away at a clay model, followed by a few detail shots of a heavily camouflaged prototype, test drivers strapping into five-point seatbelts and some high-speed racetrack footage. Oh yeah, don't forget the pounding soundtrack. So far so expected...

Digging a little deeper, though, we spot some interesting vents that look like shark gills, some eggcrate mesh (front fascia bits, perhaps?), a brief glance at the new C7 badge and a bunch of quick and blurry shots of what may be flush headlights, quad exhaust tips and a quarter panel.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Not sure if anyone has pointed this out elsewhere but are those air ducts in the rear 1/4 panel of the camo shot?

Look at the passenger rear 1/4 panel under the camo material. There seems to be a hole on the body part itself. Brake ducts?

Meet the LT1: The Corvette C7's new 6.2-liter small block V8



Chevrolet is making huge news today, revealing most all of the details about its new, fifth-generation Small Block V8 engine – dubbed LT1 – the very mill that will power the upcoming 2014 Corvette. Note that we'll be updating this post all morning as the information keeps streaming in, so check back often.

Preliminary numbers suggest no less than 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque.

The Corvette's new LT1 V8 engine is, no surprise here, set to make the car very competitive within its class. Preliminary numbers suggest no less than 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque for the 6.2-liter engine, as well as an estimated 0-60 mile per hour time of less than 4.0 seconds when installed in the base C7. To put those numbers in perspective a bit: The LT1 not only has a far higher specific output than the 6.2-liter LS3 that it replaces – up at least 20 hp and 26 lb-ft – but its torque is seemingly competitive with that of the 7.0-liter LS7 that lives in the heart of the current Corvette Z06.

With all that power and accelerative performance, Chevy engineers are still keeping fuel economy in mind – with the help of cylinder deactivation, the new Corvette powerplant is expected to deliver more than 26 miles per gallon on the highway, though figures for city driving are still unknown. The new small block also benefits from the latest advanced engine tech like direct injection, continuously variable valve technology and a relatively high 11.5:1 compression ratio, all while coming in a claimed 40-pounds lighter and four inches shorter than the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 by BMW. Chevy also notes that while premium fuel is recommended, it is not required with the LT1. We're also told that a dry sump oil system is optional (a traditional wet sump unit is standard).

GM is calling the LT1 its most advanced combustion system ever. The company analyzed literally hundreds of systems to get to this final product, including crunching over 6 million hours of CPU time dedicated to combustion system optimization, and nearly 10 million hours when combustion, structure, cooling systems, lubrication and vent systems are factored in. In fact, the motor and its systems are so advanced that an academic SAE paper is being written to explain the whole shebang. The engine will also be built at the company's 75-year-old Tonawanda plant, which happens to be where Chevy's original small block V8 was produced way back in 1955.

There is a load of detailed information from GM, in our gallery of slides from the presentation this morning. Please excuse the lowish quality of the images here – we decided to err on quality in favor of bringing you all of the LT1 info we could, as fast as was possible.

Yeah. Don't know why they would have named it LT1 after the last engine that they produced with that name.

Maybe the next gen engine will be the LS1?

People relate LTx with reliability as well as superior power. Noob.

Long live the almighty LT1. Team America.

A deeper look at the small-block heart of the next Corvette



f it's never been said before that the cornerstone to General Motors performance is the small block V8, well, it ought to be on a factory plaque somewhere. And maybe some t-shirts. We can start printing up the latter right now: The General's evergreen performance linchpin is getting a 21st-century makeover in the form of this all-new 6.2-liter LT1.

Revealed this morning at GM's Powertrain Development Center in Pontiac, Michigan, the new small block will be at the heart of the 2014 C7 Chevrolet Corvette, and variants are also expected to find their way into other GM vehicles in short order, including the automakers' full-size Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups (which are also on schedule for new 2014 models).

We revealed the key specs as the press conference unfurled this morning: a minimum of 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, 0-60 in under four seconds for the base Corvette and at least 27 miles per gallon. Critically, despite being a large displacement engine, the fifth-generation small block stays true to its roots with a compact footprint – GM claims the engine is four inches lower and more compact overall than BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, yet it weighs 40 pounds less.

Key new technologies for the engine include direct injection and continuously variable valve timing, along with Active Fuel Management (read: cylinder deactivation), a technology that GM tried to input on the last Corvette but officials admitted they had to scuttle the tech due to refinement issues – problems have been solved now. All that new hardware means that the LT1 is actually slightly heavier than the outgoing LS3 V8, but it's still very lightweight. Traditionalists will appreciate that the cam-in-block pushrod engine keeps the bore spacing and block length of its predecessors, but make no mistake, this is an all-new engine – the sum total of the carryover parts fit comfortably inside a small Ziplock baggie.

While GM officials wouldn't disclose further details about the upcoming C7's powertrain (transmission, etc.), they did opaquely confirm that an active exhaust system will return. Engine and exhaust sound is a key part of delivering the V8 experience, and engineers say they've worked hard to ensure that the Corvette's auditory thunder continues. When Autoblog noted that the inclusion of direct-injection can bring along with it some unpleasant engine sound ramifications, the engineering team noted that burying some of the hardware in the engine valley (under the intake manifold and blanketed by acoustic foam) has removed much of the unpleasant DI pump clatter at idle as well as under load. (Officials gleefully noted that the DI tech is so buried in the vee that cutaway artist extraordinaire David Kimble had a hard time locating the hardware to render it in his artwork!)

While previous speculation had the new small block pegged at 5.5-liters, GM says they went with a larger 6.2-liter displacement because of the advantages of cylinder deactivation, which effectively has the LT1 operating as a 3.1-liter V4 under lighter loads. If GM had made the engine's displacement smaller, the V4 mode wouldn't have provided as much power, and thus drivers wouldn't have the engine operating in cylinder deactivation mode as often in daily driving. By operating in full-on V8 mode more often, GM would have negated the efficiency benefits of going with a smaller displacement.

It was just about a year ago, at the end of November, 2011 when GM announced it had built its 100-millionth small block. And while GM wisely doesn't anticipate building another 100 million, this new LT1 shows that there's a lot of life left in V8 engines – certainly enough for millions more.

Scroll down to see and hear the LT1 in action in various videos, and while you're there, check out GM's official press release.

C7 Corvette could get Aisin 8-speed transmission because GM's own 'box isn't ready



Chevrolet is unveiling its highly anticipated C7 Corvette at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, but the new eight-speed automatic transmission that General Motors will introduce in this car reportedly won't be ready for at least another year. No, this doesn't mean that the C7 will only come with a manual transmission at launch. According to Motor Trend, what it does mean, though, is that the Corvette will rely on an eight-speed auto sourced from Aisin until GM's in-house transmission is ready.

The report says GM wanted to make sure it has all of the bugs worked out of its in-house-developed transmission before it launches, so it's doing a short-term agreement with the Japanese transmission supplier. Since GM is developing its own eight-speed for use in transverse (front-wheel drive) and longitudinal (all- and rear-wheel drive) applications, the Corvette will share its transmission with cars like the Cadillac XTS, ATS and the next-gen CTS, while the Buick LaCrosse and new Impala will be likely candidates for the transverse version of this gearbox. Currently, the only transmission listed on the Impala's spec sheet is the six-speed auto.

We have seen a few cammo clad spy shots of the all new 2014 C7 Corvette circulating over the last few months.

But if you really start looking around it becomes readily apparent that absolutely no one has a clue on what the next generation Corvette really is going to look like. Barely even a glimmer.

We do know that the next gen [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]sports [COLOR=blue !important]car[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] will undergo a dramatic restyling to better appeal to the exotic import buyer, and with a price tag that can easily exceed $100,000 that isn't a bad idea. But sadly we may not see the real deal until the debut at the Detroit Auto Show next year.

But what if?

What if you took the design elements of both an Italian [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]super [COLOR=blue !important]car[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] and the American performance icon and came up with a new look? Our good friends over at amcarguide.com might be on the right track with the renderings below.

If the next gen Corvette looked like this, would Chevrolet finally be able to take on the Italians?


2014 C7 Corvette Concept




Us again. While there’s no decent images of 2014 C7 Corvette, we couldn’t handle ourselves and made a test render out of very cool looking… Ferrari Concept. What do you think?








Image: amcarguide.com UPDATE:
It would be awesome if the renderings David Williams did were actually the real deal for the C7. David’s C7 Concept has the angular look but still maintains the “vettish” styling, with noticeable influence from italian Lamborginis and Ferraris.

People seem to forget or just don't know that the LT1 nameplate dates back to the early 70's.

Exactly. Additionally, the last gen LT1's only real shortfall was the Optispark. Was it as good as the LS1? No, but it was pretty damn good enough to be at the top of the pack while it was in production. The LT4 in the C4 was that much better too.

I hope it doesn't look like that. It just doesn't look manly in any way.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prdGxEFMYvE


Almost exactly one year ago we told you that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette would feature an advanced new instrument cluster. Today, in its second video trailer for the new car, Chevy has given us a glimpse at some of the digital gauges that will feature.

It’s hard to tell from the brief glimpse provided, but it looks like a traditional speedometer will sit next to a digital tachometer. Next to this will be an information screen providing vital stats such as engine and oil temperatures, oil and tirepressures, and battery charge.

We also get some comments from Alex McDonald, who is the performance integration engineer for the new 2014 Corvette. He says there’s a new level of electronic integration on the car that should make for a more accurate and refined drive.

This is just the second in a series of four trailers leading up to the car’s reveal on January 13 at a ceremony preceding the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. The first video trailer explained how the car’s exterior was sculpted for optimal aerodynamic performance.

Just this week, Chevy also announced that a virtual version of the seventh-generation Corvette is ready for download from the PlayStation Store and drivable in the popular racing simulator Gran Turismo 5. Like it does for every car featured in Gran Turismo, Polyphony Digital, the creator of the video game series, has gone to great length to ensure the performance of the virtual Corvette is as close as possible to the real thing.

This latest Corvette, the C7, is completely new, including, most importantly, its chassis, engine and interior. It will be slightly smaller than the outgoing C6, representing a sharper and more focused design for the American icon, and its brand new LT1 V-8 engine delivers more power as well.

With a power rating of 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, the LT1 is estimated to be capable of delivering 0-60 mph times of less than 4.0 seconds and a top speed in excess of 186 mph.

While you wait for its arrival, be sure to check out our previous spy shots.
