The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport line was first introduced in 1962. That’s a lot of history it’s got under its belt, but throughout the years it has evolved to prove that it can not only sustain the greatness it had shown thus far, but even actually surpass it.
For its 2017 iteration, the Grand Sport continues to impress with its sleek and modern appearance, coupled with a powerful engine under the hood, and complemented by a luxurious interior for a smooth, safe, and comfortable ride.
The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is the seventh iteration of the this model. It comes in both coupe and convertible forms, and while its appearance is clearly inspired by the Corvette Z06, don’t be too quick to think that it’ll have no distinctive character of its own. Hash-mark fender graphics are available in six colors for those who would like something that stands out more and does not look like the Z06.
Beyond appearances, though, the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport also comes with an LT1 6.2-liter V-8 engine that can also be found in the Corvette Stingray. You can also take your pick between its 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission.
Meanwhile, inside, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport looks especially sporty-elegant with its extra carbon-fiber inserts, premium materials, and magnesium seat frame structures, among others. If you get the Collector Edition, you will get Tension Blue full leather and suede, which Chevrolet has described as “a bold, modern take on the hue historically associated with the Grand Sport.”
There’s definitely more to see and find out about this latest iteration of the Grand Sport, so do check it out in Chevy dealers serving Las Cruces, NM, and other nearby areas later this summer.
