11 February 2009: 2009 CHEVROLET CORVETTE: Hogging the spotlight this year is the Corvette ZR1 supercar, pictured elsewhere. Changes and enhancements to the '09 Corvette reflect continual improvements that speak to Chevrolet�s unflagging commitment to the sports car. A new lower priced 1LT convertible joins the list of available models. Standard in the Coupe and Convertible is the 6.2L LS3 small-block V-8 rated at 430 horsepower and 424 pound-feet of torque. With the optional two-mode exhaust system, power ratings increase to 436 horses and 428 pound-feet. Standard is a six-speed manual, with six-speed paddle shift automatic optional. Back again for 2009 is the 505-horsepower Corvette Z06 Coupe, which now is a bit overshadowed by the ZR1.
The Chicago Auto Show is a charity event of the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) and is held annually at McCormick Place in Chicago Illinois.
