1997 Corvette Overview

1997 began the new generation of Corvette, C5. The Corvette Team faced many tough decisions when designing the new Corvette. They didn't know if they should change the Corvette design drastically, or make the C4 to C5 transition look like natural evolution. Another question they faced was whether or not to change the engine.

Corvette did end up deciding to use the LS1 5.7L V-8. Some Corvette enthusiasts were surprised that their "new" engine still had pushrods but there were plenty of reasons to use that engine. The engine has 345 net horsepower which is plenty for the Corvette. Lastly, it was much cheaper for Corvette to use a pushrod engine, which in turn, made the car a much more reasonable price to the customer.
