Stingray is a perfect driving machine, born from brilliant engineering and precision performance. Its aggressively sculpted exterior is a statement of intent; its driver-oriented cockpit is a creation of purpose. Simply put, the 2017 Stingray is designed for savvy drivers who demand more from their sports cars.
Stingray combines race-proven technology with provocative, purposeful design. Every element serves a purpose, from functional exterior vents to intelligent driver controls. Available in coupe and convertible with a host of personalization options, there's a Stingray to satisfy any driving enthusiast.
A functional hood air extractor features precisely angled blades for optimal cooling airflow. The result is reduced lift and increased downforce, improving high-speed handling.
The available Z51 Performance Package includes dual brake ducts that direct air through the wheelwells, cooling the front brakes and reducing brake fade for optimal stopping performance.
A powertrain cooling system, adapted from Corvette Racing, guides airflow to cool two separate heat exchangers and help reduce temperatures during high-performance driving.
Designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, no additional reinforcements were required for the Stingray convertible. The fully electronic convertible-top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely by using the key fob - even while driving at speeds of up to 30 mph - and hides beneath a hard, body-colored tonneau cover.
The Stingray cockpit features a flowing design made from premium, authentic materials. Intuitive instruments, including an available Head-Up Display that projects data into your line of sight, helps you keep your focus on the road ahead. The standard Grand Touring seat and available Competition Sport seat each feature a lightweight magnesium frame for optimal support.
The available Chevrolet Performance Data Recorder logs video of your driving sessions, along with real-time performance data, onto an SD memory card so you can analyze your technique and improve your driving abilities. And when someone else is driving the car, Valet Mode can capture video and data for additional peace of mind.
With the turn of a dial, everything changes. Five distinct, selectable driver modes electronically calibrate up to 12 performance variables to customize your Stingray for any road.
With available head-up display, the latest Chevrolet MyLink 8-inch diagonal screen,â€ easy-to-use driver modes and an available industry-exclusive Performance Data Recorder, this is the most technologically advanced Corvette to date.
Apple CarPlay compatibility takes some of the iPhone®® features and puts them on the vehicle's display in a clean, simple way. This allows you to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from your touch-screen or by voice using Siri. Apple CarPlay-supported apps include Phone, Messages, Apple Maps, Apple Music and compatible third-party apps.
Connect your compatible Android smartphone to the available Chevrolet MyLinkâ€ with 8-inch diagonal display to access select apps, Google™ Play Music, your calendar, navigate with Google™ Maps, make phone calls, or send and receive hands-free text messages.
Stingray helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling, 4-wheel antilock brakes, a rear view camera, available front curb view cameras and Traction Control. Standard Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps emanate 900 lumens of light. And if Stingray ever loses tire pressure, run-flat tires enable safe functioning at a moderate speed until the tire can be repaired.
In the event of a collision, Stingray is designed to help keep you and your passengers safe with seat-mounted head and thorax air bags and a rigid aluminum frame structure that is lighter and stiffer than that found in previous-generation Corvette models.
You're never alone with OnStar® Automatic Crash Response. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar® Advisor, who is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location - even if you're unable to respond. OnStar® Guidance Plan standard for the first three months.
