Corvette changes for 2022 include engine tweaks, higher price
Details about the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2022 are officially known. We already knew it was getting three new colors: Hypersonic Gray, Caffeine and Amplify Orange Tintcoat. But now Chevy has given us a few other juicy details.
The big news is changes to the 6.2-liter small-block V8. Chevy says it upgraded the fuel injection system and "improved" the engine calibration. This means that the engine retains its 490 hp values with the basic equipment and 495 hp values with the performance exhaust system. The 0-60 mph time for the Z51 car also stays at 2.9 seconds. We hope to get some answers on the reasons for the changes in the course of today's conversation with engineers.
The final powertrain optimization is an "expanded" Active Fuel Management program. Chevy hasn't released fuel economy yet, but with these cylinder deactivation system improvements, there could be some changes.

Some minor changes include adding a few aero options. There's a new low-profile rear spoiler and a new front splitter. Both will only be optional on the non-Z51 models.
Finally, let's talk about the price. The 2022 Corvette starts at $ 62,195, including the target fee. That's $ 1,200 more than the 2021 model and $ 2,200 more than the original 2020 model year price, which started at $ 59,995. Watching prices go up is never fun, but even with that price increase, it remains a bargain performance.
If you are thinking of buying a convertible, the price has gone up for this model too. It starts at $ 69,695, which is the same $ 1,200 increase in price when compared to the Coupe. Production for the 2022 model year (in all configurations) is currently scheduled to begin at the end of the third quarter of this year.
