Chevrolet is planning a number of small changes for the 2022 Corvette Stingray and its list of available options, including a new low-profile rear spoiler that will be available with or without the Z51 performance package.
The low-profile rear spoiler carries RPO code TVS in the 2022 Corvette’s order book and is available as a standalone option on the mid-engine sports car. Applying the low profile rear spoiler to the 2022 Corvette will also add a small Z51-style front splitter to the vehicle for some added front/rear aero balance. This option is available with or without the Z51 performance package and will replace the taller rear spoiler that usually comes standard with Z51-equipped vehicles.
Harlan Charles, marketing manager for the Chevy Camaro and Corvette programs, said the low profile rear spoiler is for 2022 Corvette buyers who want something “ in between a Z51 spoiler and no spoiler at all,” during the 2021 National Corvette Museum Bash last weekend.
In addition to the low profile rear spoiler, the 2022 Corvette also introduces three new exterior colors. These include the following:
- Hypersonic Gray Metallic (RPO code GA7)
- Amplify Orange Tintcoat (RPO code G48)
- Caffeine Metallic (RPO code GC5)
It is believed that these three new colors will replace Sebring Orange, Shadow Gray, and Zeus Bronze on the 2022 Corvette’s color palette. The 2022 Corvette is also set to offer one or two new interior color combinations and will introduce few minor changes to the features and equipment list, as well.
Cosmetic changes aside, the 2022 Corvette Stingray will continue to feature the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, which produces a healthy 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque when equipped with the optional factory performance exhaust system. The 2022 Corvette is also expected to introduce two new high-performance model variants, the Corvette C8 E-Ray and the Corvette C8 Z06, but we’re still waiting on official confirmation from Chevy on that front.
