2025 Corvette C8 Refresh Will Bring Noteworthy Changes To Interior

General Motors unveiled the new mid-engine Corvette for the 2020 model year, rolling out a series of model variants in the years that followed, including the Corvette C8 Stingray, Corvette C8 Z06, and Corvette C8 E-Ray. Now, the mid-engine Corvette is poised to receive a refresh for the 2025 model year, and GM Authority has exclusive details. Read on to learn about a few noteworthy changes expected to be made to the interior with the upcoming 2025 Corvette refresh.

Pre-refresh Corvette interior

Back in June of 2022, GM Authority was the first to report that the 2025 Corvette C8 was set to introduce a refreshed interior. Now, GM Authority is back at it to follow up on our original report with yet further details.

According to GM Authority sources, the 2025 Corvette C8 refresh is indeed still on the way, with the biggest change expected to be the deletion of the HVAC controls found along the large center divider between the two seats. This should arrive as a welcome change, as some owners have complained that the current interior layout feels somewhat cramped and divided. In fact, the middle console can prevent the driver from doing simple things like holding the passenger’s hand while driving.

Our sources also inform us that the waterfall interior element behind and between the two seats will be revamped to include a more useful inductive / wireless device charger. As it stands now, the current design is less than optimal, as it’s difficult to reach and far from ergonomic.

In addition to the interior changes explained above, the 2025 Corvette refresh will also introduce the new Corvette C8 ZR1 variant, set to cradle the twin-turbocharged 5.5L V8 LT7 gasoline engine. Output is expected to be measured at roughly 800 horsepower, with all the complementary upgrades to match, including active aerodynamics. GM Authority even rendered what the 2025 Corvette C8 ZR1 may look like, so check that out for more information.

  • About “some” owners complaining about the HVAC stack, perhaps. Most of the criticism has come from auto media writers, actually. I personally don’t have a problem with mine, which is not to say that it cannot be improved. But, I will say that I hope that there will still be physical controls of some sort. I hate cycling through menus for what should be standard and easy.

    Also, I hope the power estimate for a potential ZR1 variant is off, because 800 horses in today’s high end market might not be sufficient.

  • How ridiculous it prevents someone from holding someone's hand while they're driving something they should not be doing anyway

  • But they're probably do is put it all in the video control head which of course will further distract the driver from what they need to do the push buttons are so much safer so you're not scrolling through a stupid screen like a computer being distracted from what you should be doing typical of today's society one giant screw up

  • “Holding hands” is just code for something else…
    Everyone enjoys regular, quality hand holding, and the Vette makes it more difficult.
