Jim Butler Chevy is excited to announce the upcoming Corvette C7!

Car and Driver received a handful of photos depicting the camouflaged 2014 C7 Corvette. The new Corvette is expected to be available for purchase at Jim Butler Chevrolet at some point in mid-2013. While it is currently undergoing cold-weather testing and covered up as to prevent the public from seeing its full design before completion, we have some tidbits to pass along.

The new C7’s body shares a lot of features of the past model. Chevrolet has chosen to evolve the Corvette body as opposed to revolutionize it. The 2014 body appears to include LED running lights in the headlights as well as the potential for Chevy to abandon the rear window wraparound glass that has become a trademark of the current generation Corvette’s but these are just theories.   

While a majority of the information available on the 2014 C7 is hearsay, Jim Butler Chevrolet does have some concrete intelligence on the new sport car. For instance, the Vette will remain a front-engine, rear transaxle sports car that will have a similar suspension to the previous model.

 For the powertrain, expect Chevrolet to hold off on a twin-turbo V-6 until the Corvette C8. For efficiency reasons, expect a slight downsize from a 6.2-liter to a 5.5-liter engine most likely. This smaller engine will continue to use an aluminum block with pushrods and should be similar in HP to the previous model due to a higher compressions ratio and direct fuel injection.

The design of the Corvette, as mentioned earlier, will be an evolution of the current Corvette as opposed to a revolution.  New headlight elements are more narrow and complex. The roof has some ventilation system; either louvers or a scoop similar to the current Z06, Grand Sport, and ZR1. The biggest difference in design on the 2014 C7 will be the back-end. The rear appears to have a boat-tail design along with different taillights, exhaust tips and a modified rear over-hand.

Jim Butler Chevrolet is hoping 2014 C7’s will begin shipping to Fenton, Missouri in the middle of 2013. Expect a price tag similar to the current C7. For more information call 636.349.3222. To view our current inventory of Corvette’s click HERE.
