Chevrolet PH Officially Launches 2022 Mid-Engine Corvette For P 9.915M (w/ Specs)


It’s official: the first-ever mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette has arrived in the Philippines, just a few days it was teased on social media. After bringing in previous-generation C7, The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI) listened to customer feedback and brought in a higher performance, full-spec C8 this time around.

With Chevrolet reaching the limits of what its front-engine, rear-wheel drive Corvette could do, they took on the challenge to build an even higher-performance version—one that reaches supercar levels. At the heart of the all-new Corvette is a 6.2-liter small block V8 engine. Equipped with the Z51 package, it brings out 474 horsepower and 613 Nm of torque. This is then mated to an 8-speed double clutch automatic. Zero to 100 km/h is quoted at 3.55 seconds.



Hand-in-hand with the engine is a brand-new platform designed around the center tunnel as its backbone. Meanwhile, a new performance-oriented suspension system is equipped with Magnetic Selective Drive Control. This adaptive damper system enables the Corvette to achieve higher levels of performance without any detriment to ride quality. Moreover, the front suspension can be raised by 40 mm to help this sportscar traverse speed bumps or steep driveways. It can even memorize GPS coordinates to automatically raise the ride height. For the Philippine market, customers can choose between black or silver-colored alloy wheels shod with 245/35R19 front and 305/30R20 rear tires.

Inside, the 2022 Corvette comes with GT2 Bucket seats with 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat. A new squared-off two-spoke small-diameter steering wheel, meanwhile, enables for an unobscured view of the 12-inch digital gauge cluster. A 14-speaker Bose sound system provides an unparalleled audio experience. A Performance Data Recorder is also standard. The PDR is an advanced driving analysis tool which can also act as a dashcam.



The 2022 Corvette Stingray is priced at P 9,915,888 and is available in five colors: Torch Red, Artic White, Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic, Silver Flare Metallic, Hypersonic Gray Metallic. The interior color is Adrenaline Red with Jet Black.

It will be available at all authorized 22 Chevrolet dealerships and will come with a 5-year / 100,000-kilometer warranty.
