In addition to being extraordinarily fun to drive and just flat-out cool to look at, there’s now another reason to pick up the new Chevrolet Corvette: It’s an award winner. It was recently named to Car and Driver’s annual 10Best for 2023 list. Here are some of the things that made this car a winner.

Z06 Trim

Car and Driver particularly liked the Z06 trim, which they called a “track-focused monster,” though one that is also ideally suited for driving around town. It comes with a flat-pane 5.5-liter V8 engine that pumps out a whopping 670 horsepower, and you’ll hear every one of those ponies.


The publication also noted the Stingray variant, labeling it a “spectacular supercar” thanks to a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 490 horsepower. It’s also swift, launching you from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. If that’s not fast enough for you, you can go with the coupe and the Z51 package, cutting that sprint by another tenth of a second.

Other Notable Features

There are several other reasons why the Chevy Corvette was singled out. It has a big and comfortable interior that offers quite a bit of head- and legroom. It also comes with many advanced tech features, including:

  • Wi-Fi® hot spot
  • HD and satellite radio
  • Wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®
  • Eight-inch touchscreen
  • Proximity keyless entry
  • Push-button start
  • Remote start
  • 10-speaker stereo
  • Bluetooth®
  • 2 USB ports

Wireless device charging and a 14-speaker Bose® stereo are also available.
