Chevy announces 2012 Corvette changes

The Chevrolet Corvette is one of the most famous models in existence, and each year General Motors keeps making adjustments. The 2012 version of the vehicle isn't a complete redesign, but it does feature a number of upgrades over the 2011 version that drivers may want to consider.

This year, GM has focused on upgrading the interior of the Corvette for a more pleasurable driving experience. The optional Bose audio system has been upgraded from seven speakers to nine, and buyers can also upgrade to a technology package that includes Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port. Comfort has been addressed as well, with a brand-new seat featuring padded armrests.

"We constantly strive to make the Corvette a better car on the road and the track," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. "For 2012, the Corvette lineup achieves its highest performance level ever, while at the same time being easier to drive and enjoy thanks to several changes and new features inside the car."

Drivers interested in purchasing a used Chevrolet Corvette may want to consider New Jersey State Auto Auction, which offers a wide range of cars for sale at affordable prices.
