Caught Again! 2014 Chevrolet Corvette’s Cockpit Looks More Driver-Oriented
On the same day GM confirms that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette will debut on January 13, we’ve got new photos of the C7 Corvette out testing yet again. This time, however, it gave our spy photographers another preview of the interior, revealing a more driver-oriented command center.
Chevrolet has revealed that everything about the C7 will be new, except for two parts shared with the outgoing C6: the cabin air filter and the removable roof panel’s rear latch. We can see from the spy shots that the cockpit is more centered on the driver, with a bigger and deeper-set instrument panel. The right panel wall extends further out and flows into a sleeker dashboard, which looks to be made of better quality materials. New air vents sport silver trim, and while the center stack isn’t visible, we can expect a more advanced infotainment system with better graphics; we called the current system’s graphics “Atari-esque.” We also expect the new C7 to offer Recaro seats.
You already know the rest: Key Corvette cues remain, such as the long hood and short rear deck, and round taillights. A new fifth-generation small-block V-8 with direct-injection could be found under the hood, with displacement reduced from the regular C6 Corvette’s current 6.2 liters to just 5.5 liters while still maintaining power levels.
