What to Buy? 2019 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2019 Chevrolet Camaro

September 10th, 2019 by

When thinking about high-performance, all-American sports cars, the Camaro and the Corvette for sale in KY feature on top of the list.

General Motors manufactures both of these automobile brands,  but there are significant differences between the two.

Let’s read on to understand more.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2019 Chevrolet Camaro

Corvette Grand SportSince the launch of the 7th-generation Corvette in 2014, a V8 engine has been the norm.

The 2019 Camaro comes with upgraded features like the LED halogen headlamps, cloud-based connectivity, and much more. The Camaro’s engine is the same V8 as in the Corvette, but it also offers four engine options in total.

Both cars hit sharp numbers on the chronograph scale, and are available as a coupe or convertible option.

However, with Corvette for sale in KY, you also get a removable roof.


“Performance-wise, the bottom range of the Corvette can be compared with the top range Camaro.”


Engine and Transmission

Corvette

With Corvette’s 6.2-liter V8 engine, you get a 7-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The power tier options available for Grand Sport and Stingray are 460 hp and 465 lb.ft of torque, with a combined fuel economy of 18 mpg.

The supercharged version Z06 offers 650 hp and 650 lb.ft of torque, with a combined mileage of 17 mpg. ZR1 offers supercharged 755 horsepower and 715 lb.ft of torque, with a combined fuel economy of 15 mpg.

Given these powerful specs, you might want to visit Dan Cummins for a new or pre-owned Corvette for sale in KY.

Camaro

Red CamaroWith the 2019 Camaro, you get a 6-speed manual transmission, and 8-speed and 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. You have four engine options—the base LS and LT models come with:

  • 0 liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine, offering 275 hp and 295 lb.ft of torque, and a combined fuel economy of 25 miles per gallon
  • 6-liter V6 engine churning out 335 hp and 284 lb.ft of torque, and a combined mpg value of 23

SS Camaro, on the other hand, comes with a 6.2-liter 455-horsepower V8 engine and offers 20 mpg combined fuel efficiency and 455 lb-ft of torque. ZL1 Camaro has a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, with an output of 650 hp, 650 lb.ft of torque, and combined mileage of 15 mpg.

Performance

Performance-wise, the bottom range of the Corvette can compare with the top range Camaro.

While the entry-level model Corvette Stingray can go from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, ZL1 Camaro takes just 3.5 seconds.

The supercharged Z06 and ZR1 Corvette have received pretty good on-track reviews, gaining 0-60 mph in less than three seconds. If you are looking for stylized accents and an excellent powertrain in a Corvette for sale in KY, go for the Grand Sport model.

Interiors, Space, and Quality

Interiors of used Corvette

Comfortable sports seats, a modern design, and a splash of color enhance the interiors of both cars. While the Corvette Coupe, with its hatchback design, offers a 15 cu ft trunk space, for Camaro Coupe, it is a mere nine cu ft.

Corvette offers 43.0 inches and 38.0 inches legroom and headroom, respectively. Although Camaro offers 43.9 inches and 38.5 inches of the same, it feels a bit congested. Furthermore, Camaro’s small windows and poor exterior design provides very low overall visibility.

Infotainment

Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay are standard in both vehicles. Corvette offers a Bose audio system, which is optional on the Camaro. Apart from these, you have the option of 4G LTE connectivity on both vehicles, which you can use to turn on the mobile Wi-Fi hotspots.

Technology

There are plentiful charging options in the Corvette, with two 12V outlets and three USB ports. However, there are only two USB ports and one 12V outlet in the Camaro.


“Chevrolet Corvette scores sharp chronograph numbers and offers a pretty decent ride.”


Safety

Corvette, without doubt, is a responsive car, and you experience a cushioned ride. C7 Corvette complies with the federal safety regulations and is safer than a used Corvette.

The Camaro has received excellent reviews from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It offers blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, rear parking sensors, and more.
