2017 Corvette Stingray Exterior and Interior

Normally, heavy cladding on front fascia suggests major restyling, but compared to the current model, the 2017 Corvette Stingray prototype may not have extreme exterior redesign changes. Most notably, the 2017 Corvette Stingray sheds off most of its black plastic with the pocket sized luxury crossover having more body-coloured surfaces. The other redesign changes include new bumpers, redesigned headlights, a new grille and a shorter front fascia. The cladding in the hood is probably the best hint that the Corvette Stingray will get powertrain changes, and the prototype is likely being used to test cooling and airflow to the new engine. This might also explain why there’re no changes on the rear end of the Corvette, although there’ll almost surely be changes made to the rear taillights as well.

2017 Corvette Stingray like the exterior, the interior will probably get changes, too. Spy shots haven’t shown any of its interior, but as with most Corvette Stingray mid-cycle updates, there are great chances for a reworked instrument panel. This will very likely focus on the design and technology of the centre stack and gauges, and the latest Stingray infotainment technology may be included. High trim levels will feature piano black trims on the centre consoles, door panels and on the dashboard. It will feature a new touch screen which should be more suitable for the current infotainment system and a highly comfortable four-zone air conditioning system. Other high-tech settings and accessories include USB and Bluetooth connectivity as well as satellite navigation.
