In anticipation of the unveiling of the Corvette C7 at the Detroit Auto Show, Chevrolet has been touting improvements made to the ‘Vette’s interior and the addition of electrical components that will allow for more customizable performance settings.
The Corvette hasn’t been know for stunning workmanship when it comes to the interior, but many were willing to sacrifice a luxury interior for a capable yet affordable sports car. This year, Corvette is hyping an improved interior as a major difference between the new C7 and the outgoing C6. This may be in part a response to the upgraded interior seen in the SRT Viper. Though we don’t know much about what the interior of the 2014 Corvette will look like, we do know that the Corvette C7 will feature an entirely digital dash, a first for the sports car. Information regarding oil temperature, oil pressure, and tire pressure will be displayed in real time alongside the tachometer.
Corvette has been alluding to upgraded electronics in recent days. Specifically saying that the car will be capable of adjusting to a large variety of road types, from the track to twisty back roads. It appears the car’s driving dynamics will be able to be controlled in detail by the driver. We’re assuming that things like damping control, steering weight, and throttle response will be able to be adjusted based on the driver’s preferences.
The 2014 Corvette C7 will debut at the Detroit Auto Show on January 15, 2013.
