2001 Corvette Overview
The largest part of the Corvette story for 2001 is the introduction of the new Z06 Corvette. The 2001 Z06 Corvette was the quickest, best handling Corvette of its time, setting new standards in high-performance. 2001 was the first year that Corvette introduced the LS6 engine, delivering 385 HP and 385 lb-ft of torque. The Z06 also had a new 6-speed transmission with more aggressive gearing to increase torque multiplication in every gear, ultimately increasing acceleration.
The Z06 was not the only Corvette with power during 2001. The coupe and convertible models got a healthy injection of power as well. Their standard LS1 V-8 350 HP engine was up from 345 HP but the real story lies in the boost of low-end torque. Low in the torque curve is where Coupe and Convertible owners would really feel the difference in power.
