1998 Corvette Overview

The 1998 C5 Corvette was the first Corvette to come with the new Active Handling system as an option. The Active Handling system activates when there is a significant difference between how the driver intends for the car to corner and how the car is actually cornering. It works with the ABS and traction control systems needed to apply any of the four brakes to help correct the situation. Active Handling can help to avoid many accidents.

Also during 1998, the LS1 5.7L V-8 engine was distinguished as one of the best in 1998. The Corvette, Camaro, and Firebird are all powered by the engine. The 1998 5.7L V-8 was the most technologically advanced push rod small block of its time. The engine continued with its heritage of 4.40 inch center-to-center bore dimensions and high output.
