Chevrolet has just announced 2022 model-year updates for the Corvette Stingray , which will be available to order beginning July 1. Production is expected to start in late summer.

First, there are three new body colours to choose from including Hypersonic Grey, Caffeine and Amplify Orange Tintcoat. A new low-profile rear spoiler and the Z51 design front splitter will be offered on non-Z51 models, which is great.

When it comes to the powertrain, the 6.2-litre V8 enters 2022 with an upgraded direct injection fuel system, improved engine calibration and an enhanced Active Fuel Management range. It continues to deliver 490 horsepower, or 495 horsepower with the available performance exhaust system.

Once again, the lineup consists of three trim levels—1LT, 2LT and 3LT—both with the coupe and convertible.  The Z51 Performance Package can be specified with any of them. Magnetic Ride Control is available with or without the Z51 Performance Package. 

Commemorating the mid-engine Corvette C8.R’s inaugural racing season in 2020, Chevrolet is launching a limited IMSA GTLM Championship Edition. Only 1,000 of these distinctively styled Corvettes will be sold in the U.S. and Canada, resembling the No. 3 and No. 4 Corvette C8.R race cars.

Based on the Corvette Stingray 3LT Z51 model, the special edition includes Corvette Racing-themed graphics packages. Accelerate Yellow No. 3 editions feature gray graphics and Hypersonic Gray No. 4 editions feature yellow accents. Other highlights include a high-wing spoiler and mirror caps in Carbon Flash, yellow brake calipers and black Trident design wheels with the “Jake” logo on the centre caps.

The interior features a combination of Strike Yellow and Sky Cool Grey that mimics the exterior yellow and grey racing theme, with standard GT2 seats (Competition Sport seats are available), yellow seat belts and a C8.R Special Edition numbered plaque.

The 2022 Corvette Stingray visualizer  is now live so you can start planning your order. Canadian pricing will be announced at a later date, however. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for official details about the future Corvette Z06 .
