Exacting beauty and performance

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. Every element of the 2017 Stingray makes it the quickest, most powerful, most refined Stingray ever made.


Design

Defiant Design

With coupe and convertible options and a host of personalization options, there's a Stingray to satisfy any driving enthusiast. 

Illuminating Details

Hood Air Extractor

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.

Brake Cooling

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.

Powertrain Cooling

A powertrain cooling system, adapted from Corvette Racing, guides airflow to cool two separate heat exchangers and help reduce temperatures during high-performance driving.

Stingray Convertible

Designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, no additional reinforcements were required for the Stingray convertible. The fully electronic drop-top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely using the key fob - even while driving at speeds up to 30 mph. Using this innovative hands-free latching, the top hides beneath a body-colored tonneau cover behind the seats.

Ready for Takeoff

The Stingray cockpit features sweeping free-form lines, authentic materials and intuitive instruments, including two 8-inch diagonal LCD screens and an available Head-Up Display that projects data into your line of sight. The standard Grand Touring seat and available Competition Sport seat each feature a lightweight magnesium frame for optimal support.

  • GT seat available in Napa leather with 3LT trim level
  • Competition Sport seat is built for cornering, with pronounced side bolsters
  • Unique flat-bottom steering wheel enhances the driving experience

Driving Confidence

Electric power steering eliminates road shake, enhancing overall responsiveness. Standard Brembo® brakes deliver confident stopping power while Michelin® Pilot® Super Sport Zero Pressure summer-only tires - exclusive to Stingray - optimize ride, grip and handling. Put simply, Stingray does exactly what you want it to do, and it does it extremely well.

Suspension

Stingray incorporates the world's fastest-acting suspension. Available Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ is a real-time damping system that "reads" the road every millisecond and can adjust in under 15 milliseconds. Available Performance Traction Management features five settings tailored to driving skill level and track conditions.

Transmissions

A standard 7-speed manual transmission features a rear transaxle that enables even weight balance while the Active Rev Matching sensors stimulate heel-toe shifting and enhances the driving experience by matching engine speed to the desired gear for smooth shifting transitions. The available 8-speed paddle-shift offers the smooth control of an automatic but with quick, precise shifts and manual mode for track driving.


Safety

Safety

Stingray employs a host of safety technologies to help keep you safe before, during and after a possible collision, including an available head-up display that projects critical information onto your windshield so you can keep your eyes on the road.

Prevent

Stingray helps to prevent potential danger with features like Active Handling, 4-wheel antilock brakes and Traction Control. Standard Xenon high-intensity discharge headlamps help visibility by emanating 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.

Protect

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.

Respond

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. Standard for the first six months.
