From the standard version of the car that utilizes a LS3 V8 delivering 430 hp to the ZR-1 incarnation that goes with a 638 hp LS9 V8, the next generation of the Chevrolet Corvette will offer the new version of the car equipped with 440 hp 5.5 Liter Small Block V8. Let’s take an inside look at this new upgraded edition via the following details:

 

In terms of its specifications, Vette’s V8 will take a step or two on the downsizing road, providing a smaller displacement. GM has confirmed the latest units will feature tiotioaluminum blocks and heads, direct injection as well as an efficiency-boosting combustion system. However, the upcoming powerplants will remain GM’s overhead-valve design, which keeps the production costs low and supplies a compact layout. Also, Vette will have a capacity of 5.5 liters and will generate about 440 hp.
