CHEVROLET'S PERFORMANCE VEHICLES LINEUP FOR 2019
Ever thought of how the world would have been without the Vettes and the Camaros growling on the streets and drag strips? Well, a mere thought of this sends a shiver down my spine and leaves me with an idea for Chevy, “never let these two iconic brands(cars) fade away.” It’s not just their charm or the iconic legacy that has made them more than mere vehicles, its the idea and the emotions behind them that has transformed these to renowned brands worldwide.
Like we know, Rome was not built in a day, their legacy is not just a culmination of days and years passed by, but it is more than that. Named after a particular class of warship that is agile and highly maneuverable, The Corvette emerged as a revolutionary vehicle that completely changed the face of the American performance car segment.
And while the Vette busy achieving the milestones, the bosses at Chevy added a pony car to their lineup, the Camaro. Vicious yet friendly, the Camaro was meant to be a fast car with a cruel nature of eating the mustangs up. Over the years, the car has seen a drastic change in its design language, but still feels the same as it was on its day one.
So without waiting lets put the pedal to the metal and hit the road to know about the latest offerings under this segment.
Chevrolet Performance Cars
Chevrolet offers 6 performance cars under this segment starting from the Camaro to the ultimate track machine, the Corvette ZR1. Here are the models present under this category –
The Camaro is an iconic car which has left a lasting impact on many. Chevy offers the latest Camaro, keeping in mind the thrill of driving, but with bold new looks and more muscle and technology packed under its skin. The new Camaro stands out not just because of its legacy, but also because of its thrilling performance.
When it comes to its interiors, I feel Chevy has stepped up its game, but still, something is holding them back. The interior feels comfortable, but at the same time, a bit confining, and this is where Chevy need to work upon. And as a personal experience, I used the rear seats more for carrying luggage or for my pet.
And as mentioned, the interior quality feels a little better, and so does the overall build quality. Chevrolet offers this as either a coupe or a convertible and in 7 trims which are 1LS, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1SS, and 2SS. The convertible variant drops the 1LS and starts at 1LT. Finally, if everything goes well and you plan to get this machine, it starts at 25 grand and goes up to 48 for the 2SS.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
All praise is less for this pony car running on steroids. Yes, you read it right. This track-focused car not only looks aggressive on the skin but also packs some serious amount of horses under its hood. Available as both coupe and convertible, this growling monster equips a massive 650 hp 6.2 L V8 motor. The ZL1 stands at the pinnacle of power in its segment.
The build quality is excellent, but the interior is not so great and spacious. And of course, this car is not meant for chilled weekend drives but is purpose-built for creating menace on the tracks. The performance is thrilling and keeps the driver engaged. The ZL1 is offered in only 1 trim with a starting price of $62,000 and going up till $72,190.
Corvette Stingray is the entry-level sports car coming from the house of Chevy and packs a right amount of punch in its character. A two-seat sports car, the stingray comes as either a coupe or a convertible.
From its aggressive looks to the driver-centric and spacious interiors, the car feels sporty yet can be used as a daily driver. The new Vette is offered in 6 trims, the 1LT, 2LT, 1LT w/Z51, 2LT w/Z51, 3LT and 3Lt w/Z51. Prices start at $55,900 and go up till $75,145.
Corvette Grand Sport
Stepping up, Chevy offers the Vette as a Grand Sports car with the legendary LT1 V8 pumping under its skin. This Corvette also offers a Chevy’s Magnetic Ride Control System which allows the car to provide a smoother driving experience.

Available in 3 trims, 1LT, 2LT and 3LT. The pricing for this starts at $65,900 and goes up to $80,145 for the top-spec variant.
As an entry-level mean machine, the Z06 stands as the manufacturer’s everyday sportscar. Unlike the Stingray and the GS, the Z06’s aggressive stance and ear numbing exhaust notes are enough to crash any party. Available either as a coupe or a convertible, the new Z06 offers the driver an engaging and thrilling drive.
From its aggressively sculpted body to the driver-centric console and comfortable seats, the Z06 offers a pleasant interior experience with the use of upscale appointments like leather, etc. The Z06 is offered in 3 trims, 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ, with the prices starting at $80,900 and going up till $94,345 for the top trim.
A track monster and a gas guzzler, the 2019 Corvette ZR1 stands as the ultimate expression of performance, speed, and enthusiasm. With a 755 hp 6.2L V8 motor churning under its hood, the ZR1 stands as a capable car enough to enter into supercar territory and leave many legendary cars biting the dust. And not to forget about the handling. Yes, this car does come with some serious power under its hood, yet it feels incredibly agile and easy to control.
From the extensive use of carbon fiber on it, the ZR1 stands uniquely and redefines the definition of aggressive functional styling. This track monster is also available either as a coupe or a convertible. It is available in two trim levels, 1ZR, and 3ZR, and its pricing starts at $120,900 and goes up till $135,400.
Aggressive, beautiful, and engaging, the performance cars coming from Chevrolet’s stable redefines what constitutes a performance car. Unlike the exotics, these performance monsters carry the brand’s ideals and push the limits of their respective segments to the extreme.
