Not much changes for the 2019 Corvette model year, save for the arrival of the C7 Corvette ZR1, but one small difference will likely save many owners a headache or two.
All 2019 C7 Corvettes will be factory-filled with Mobil 1 0W-40 synthetic motor oil, which may not seem like a big deal, but it is. The oil blend is rated for street and track use, which will keep owners from changing oil every time they plan on taking their Corvette to a track event.
Previous C7 Corvettes were filled with 5W-30, but Mobil 1’s 15W-50 was recommended for track events.
However, 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 owners will still want to keep 15W-50 on hand. The 0W-40 label still recommends the track-use oil for the 6.2-liter supercharged LT5 V8 engine for maximum track performance.
2019 Corvette production began on January 29, 2018, which made the 2018 model year one of the shortest in Corvette history.
