The 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 has not yet received an official unveil but there have been some leaks to hint at what to expect. While no official photos of the exterior have been published, the Z06 is expected to maintain familiar looks.
In late 2020, the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 prototype has been spotted on public roads. While most of the exterior was masked, the overall shape of the car looks very familiar. It features quad-exhaust and the same taillights with the large LED strip going through the middle of the tail.
Because the car was covered, few other details could be distinguished. The upcoming Z06 will have LED daytime running lights that contours the headlights and large air vents on the sides like in the previous generation.
While many anticipated a supercharged petrol engine or even a hybrid, Chevrolet will be offering the upcoming Z06 with a 5.5-liter naturally aspirated engine. The engine will come in a V-8 configuration. It will be a flat-plane twin-cam engine that can go up to 9,000 RPM and delivers 625 HP. This makes it one of the most powerful naturally aspirated engines, packing 99 more HP than the second most powerful.
An interesting aspect of the upcoming Z06 is that there will be an all-electric version. Chevrolet has not disclosed much about the technology of their electric powertrain, range, and HP.
Lastly, there will be a hybrid version. The hybrid version will have a total output of 1000 HP and will be paired with an automatic transmission.
The 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will benefit from all the latest technologies. Like the previous model year, it will have 360 cameras, auto emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, a rearview camera, shifting paddles, launch control, blind spot assist, parking sensors, and a new infotainment system. It will support Android Auto and Apple Car Play as standard.
