The Chevrolet Corvette gets new colours and Apple CarPlay for 2021

The eighth-generation Corvette has had a tumultuous first year, which, after a series of unfortunate events and despite Chevrolet's best efforts, still made the 2020 model year one of the shortest ever production runs for the sports vehicle.

The changes for the 2021 Corvette include two new colors. In fact, GM has added a few features to the C8's option list that weren't there for the debut year, adding a little extra incentive for buyers who were on the fence about plunking down cash for the new Corvette in its first model year. Also newly standard is a safety belt monitor that will prevent the driver from shifting out of park into gear if the driver's seat belt is not buckled.

In terms of exterior colors, you get Red Mist Metallic, Silver Flare Metallic and the Sky Cool Grey/Yellow Strike exterior-interior combo, while the Stinger Stripes are available in the following three colors: Carbon Flash/Edge Red, Carbon Flash/Edge Yellow, and Carbon Flash/Midnight Silver. Stretching the length of America's supercar are four dual racing stripes in blue, orange, red, or yellow. It also confirms that the model goes on sale in late 2020. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility highlight the new standard features.

Chief among these is the availability of the Corvette's phenomenal Magnetic Selective Ride Control as a standalone option. Soon to be available will be a suite of performance models such as the Z06 and the ZL1. We hope Chevy can keep the costs down for Canada as well.
