If you’ve ever driven a C7-generation Chevrolet Corvette you’ll know that its infotainment system is lackluster to say the least. It is laggy, outdated, and a pain to use. Thankfully, that doesn’t seem to be the case with the C8-generation Corvette unveiled just a couple months ago.
YouTuber Chevy Dude, who just so happens to be a Chevrolet salesman and has a C8 on order, has dropped a clip walking us through the new infotainment system of the Corvette Stingray featured here in Convertible guise. Additionally, we’re provided with an excellent look at the digital gauge cluster.
Unlike the C7 that features a screen in the center and analog dials on either side, the cluster of the C8 is all digital, much like many other new vehicles. This new digital gauge cluster can be viewed in a number of different forms depending on what drive mode is selected. There are also a number of different features that can be customized to suit the preferences of owners.
In creating a mid-engined sports car, Chevrolet had to ensure the interior of the C8 Corvette was up to the standard of its European rivals. On first impressions, it looks like an excellent step up from the C7, particularly when bathed in white leather like this particular example.
The first customer-ordered Corvettes are expected to arrive in January and February of 2020. Both the Stingray coupe and Convertible models feature a 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine producing 490 hp in standard form and 495 hp with the available performance exhaust.
