Natural Resources Canada has published complete fuel economy numbers for the 2023 Corvette Z06 as Chevy prepares to commence the first customer deliveries of the mid-engine supercar in the near future.
The 2023 Corvette Z06 is rated at 19.4 L/100 km city, 11.4 L/100 km highway and 15.8 L/100 km combined. When converted to U.S. miles per gallon, this works out to 12.1 MPG city, 20.6 MPG highway and 14.8 MPG combined. Natural Resources Canada estimates a 2023 Corvette Z06 will drink $4,582 worth of fuel in a year, but that’s using the federal agency’s standard 20,000-kilometer annual mileage estimate. It’s likely that most 2023 Corvette Z06 owners will drive the vehicle less than 20,000 kilometers per year, so annual fuel costs may vary.
|Stingray||Z06||Z06 With Carbon Aero|
|City (L/100 km / MPG)||15.0 / 16||19.4 / 12||20.0 / 12|
|Highway (L/100 km / MPG)||9.8 / 24||11.4 / 21||12.7 / 19|
|Combined (L/100 km / MPG)||12.7 / 19||15.8 / 15||16.7 / 14|
The Corvette Z06 is slightly less efficient when equipped with the optional aerodynamics kit, which is only available via the Z07 Performance Package, due to the additional drag creating by the canards, underbody strakes and rear wing. Models with the aero kit are rated at 20 L/100km city, 12.7 L/km highway and 16.7 L/100 km combined. When converted to miles per gallon, this works out to 11.7 MPG city, 18.5 MPG highway and 14 MPG combined, pushing annual fuel costs to C$4,843.
The 2023 Corvette Z06 is equipped with the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which is rated 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque in the mid-engine supercar, with power sent to the rear wheels through an upgraded version of GM’s dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. Chevy claims the supercar can hustle from zero to 60 mph in roughly 2.6 seconds.
Production of the Corvette Z06 will commence at the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant this year. Pricing for the Coupe body style in the entry-level 1LZ trim starts at $106,395 including the mandatory destination freight charge ($128,198 in Canada), while pricing for the Convertible in this same base trim starts at $113,895 ($137,198 in Canada).
