  • Hear the C7 Corvette's three-mode exhaust



    Chevrolet's new, seventh-generation Corvette Stingray is quite easily one of the most highly anticipated vehicles of the year. And as details of the new car trickle out ahead of our first drive of it (coming soon!), we're getting more and more excited.

    Perhaps the question most on our mind as this new Chevy marches towards production is, what will it sound like? That's not a simple question, though, as the Stingray will sound different depending on whether or not you spec the optional performance exhaust, which can radically change the car's acoustic character.

    Here, we have video of three different modes for the four-piped exhaust. Unfortunately, though, the car is just idling, which isn't ideal. It's interesting to hear that there are three distinct settings, which contrasts with the information that this was a dual-mode exhaust. Of course, it's possible that one of the modes is what the car sounds like with a few cylinders shut down. All Corvettes feature cylinder deactivation for their 6.2-liter V8s, with a unique exhaust mode to limit four-pot clatter. It just seems odd that it could readily be engaged at idle.

    We're going to hold off judgment until we're behind the wheel, but right now, the performance exhaust seems like a worthwhile way to spend $1,195. Take a listen in the video below, and let us know what you think.Continue reading Hear the C7 Corvette's three-mode exhaust

      What do you get for 1200 dollars. Is it a full system, cat back system or just mufflers ?

    ^^ That drives me nuts in our older cars. I am constantly tugging the driver side mat back.

    We were running the Monte SS at the track

    Now looking for floor mats that won't slide under the pedals. I actually want 2 sets. One for everyday use and the other for shows with the Firebird

    Anybody use d.i.y anti-theft switches, Watson Street Works ?

    All our play cars have battery disconnects. I usually take the knob with me after parking the car if I have any concerns.
