When first unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the eighth-generation Corvette took the auto industry by storm.

Not only was it the first mid-engine Corvette since the model was introduced in 1953

but it also had the looks and performance his metrics that put it right next to the most prestigious supercars in the world

Corvettes were equipped with V8 engines, except for units produced between 1953 and his 1955.

 And things seem set to get even better as the eighth-generation Corvette improves performance.

Since its introduction for model year 2020, the Corvette Stingray has been equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces a total of 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque.

Those numbers can improve to 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque with the addition of the Z51 Performance Package. It sounds like a lot

but the C8 Corvette is actually rated at 455 hp, with him 35 hp more than the 7th generation.

Needless to say, the Corvette's rivalry is getting stronger by the day.

The Chevrolet has offered upgrades to the V-8 engine over the years, but never changed its performance specifications.

For 2022, the engine has undergone several changes required to meet new federal emissions standards

This includes revisions to the engine's fueling and active fuel management systems, as well as minor engine calibration updates

These changes also improved the car's fuel economy, but did not affect its performance

Based on past experience, this means the updated Corvette should make his 510-520 horsepower.
