6 Items for Your Chevy Corvette SUV Wish List
You were warned; now it’s coming! GM is capitalizing on the Corvette name with an SUV lineup that will be low-slung, sporty, and beefy. We expect this new lineup of Corvette SUVs to deliver legendary sportscar driving dynamics, but that’s yet to be seen.
Is the Chevy Corvette SUV electric?
The new 2025 Chevy Corvette SUV will utilize the same Ultium battery technology found under the GMC Hummer EV and other GM-branded electric vehicles. This system offers an 800-volt electric system and should have some high-revving electric motors for the new Corvette SUV. Those hoping for a V8 engine and electric motors are sadly out of luck.
With this new EV in mind, here are six items that should be on your Corvette SUV wish list.
1. Optional 4WD or AWD
This new Chevy EV is an SUV and it wears a high-performance name. Although the Corvette has always been relegated to city streets or track driving, an off-road version of this new SUV could be really cool. Adding this to the new Corvette SUV might require increased ground clearance, but how much fun would drivers have when taking this new electric performance SUV out on the trails?
2. Biometric Entry and Operation
Tech is becoming a huge part of new EVs and most automakers are pushing all their chips to the middle of the table. Could the new 2025 Chevy Corvette SUV deliver the futuristic feeling of biometric entry and operation? This feature reads your face or fingerprint before allowing entry or starting the vehicle.
3. Autonomous Driving
It’s not a stretch to think the new Corvette electric SUV might include the GM Super Cruise feature. This should be an expectation, but could we move beyond Level 3 technology by 2025 to offer Level 4 or 5 autonomous driving? Of course, there are those that will argue the pleasure of the Corvette name is in driving it. Autonomous driving removes this pleasure but could be a benefit during heavy traffic or while running errands.
4. Advanced Infotainment
Should we expect the new 2025 Chevy Corvette SUV to include an infotainment system that only requires voice commands for all operations? This should be possible. At the very least, the infotainment system of this new sporty SUV should rival those found in Tesla EVs.
5. 360-Degree Pedestrian Detection
Some of the early images of the new Corvette SUV give this vehicle a high rear area, making it difficult to see what’s going on around the vehicle. All versions of the Corvette electric SUV should include 360-degree pedestrian and impact detection to avoid running into people or obstacles in the blind areas of this new SUV.
The 2025 Chevy Corvette SUV should include a self-diagnostic feature when it arrives. This could be a standard feature on all vehicles as we move toward more AI-based applications. A self-diagnostic feature would allow the Corvette SUV to continually monitor its functions and prevent a breakdown on the side of the road. This could be one of the most important advancements in automotive technology.
How much will the 2025 Chevy Corvette SUV cost?
If the new Corvette electric SUV follows along the traditional path of this nameplate, it should be affordably priced compared to other performance-oriented electric SUVs. With this in mind, Car and Driver estimates the 2025 Chevy Corvette SUV will cost $80,000. This puts the new Corvette SUV in the same range that HotCars offers which is $70,000-$100,000.
