Chevy Corvette Named One of Best Roadsters in 2022

There’s no better way to enjoy the road than in a top-down, two-seater convertible. For its eighth generation, the Corvette was completely redesigned with a mid-engine layout rather than the traditional front-engine design it had always had in the past. Has this impacted its ability to deliver as a roadster? Not according to U.S. News & World Report, which named the popular American sports car one of the Best Roadsters in 2022.

“[The mid-engine design] unlocked all sorts of new performance potential while retaining the relative affordability compared to world-class supercars,” writes U.S. News auto journalist George Kennedy. “The base Corvette coupe still has a removable roof panel, which stows in the trunk area behind the engine.”

Though you can indeed drive the base Corvette Stingray with the roof panel off, every trim is available with a convertible variant that comes with a power-retractable hard top. Conveniently, every convertible Corvette also features a digital rearview mirror so you can still see what’s behind you when the top is closing or opening.

And with a naturally-aspirated, 490-horsepower V8 engine powering the Corvette from 0-60 mph in just three seconds, there are no compromises made when it comes to performance. The Corvette is just as ready to please on the track as it is on the open road with the top down. See how it feels to get behind the wheel for yourself by visiting Graue Inc. in Lincoln, Illinois!
