1997 Corvette

This was the year that kicked off the LS1 revolution, as well as started the fifth generation of Corvette. The LS1 engine premiered in the Corvette C5 with 345hp from the factory! Many changes were made to the Corvette in this year, even the frame was redone – the car now had a hydroformed box frame. The drivetrain underwent a major makeover and the transmission- either the 4L60E or T-56 six-speed- was moved to the rear and the engine was connected through a torque tube.

1998 Corvette

In 1998, Corvette buyers got the option to buy a C5 with the Active Handling System. This is a system that activates when the suspension is put under substantial load during driving. The new suspension featured worked together with the ABS, traction control, and applied brakes to help the driver regain control of the vehicle to avoid accidents. Otherwise, very little changes were made to the C5 in this year.

1999-2000 Corvette

People purchasing a 1999 Corvette now had three options to choose from for body style: convertible, coupe, and the newly added hardtop. The hardtop came with the Z51 suspension, a suspension system made for racing – it had stiffer springs, large monotube absorbers, and large stabilizer bars. 2000 was mainly a carry-over year; different wheel and color options were available.

2001 Corvette

In 2001, the Corvette C5 got a slight power boost- it now had 350hp. Models now came with an aluminum exhaust system and chrome exhaust tips. This year marked the first year of the wildly popular Z06. The Z06 came with a hardtop, six-speed manual, 385hp LS6 engine (high performance tuned LS1), FE4 suspension, and other upgrades to improve performance.

2002 Corvette

All of the major changes in 2002 for Corvette were mainly those to the Z06. The LS6 got a 20 horsepower kick and the engine now pumped out 405hp, the clutch was upgraded, and the suspension was improved upon.

2003 Corvette

For 2003, a special 50th anniversary edition was release to commemorate the last five decades of America’s favorite sports car. All models all receive the magnetic selective ride control feature, and for the first time ever- child seat hooks.

2004 Corvette

The 2004 models would be the last of the fifth generation C5 Corvette. Z06 models got a carbon fiber hood, and revised shock valves. Buyers also had the choice of commemorative racing editions in all body styles.
