2008 Chevy Corvette – The most notable advancement of the 2008 Corvette model year was the news that Chevrolet had developed another evolution of its legendary small-block engine. The new engine was designated the LS3, and would become the standard engine for both the base coupe and convertible models. The LS3 included a size increase from 364 cubic-inches (6.0L) of the LS2 to 376 cubic-inches (6.2L). In addition to increased size and displacement, the engine also received a thirty-horsepower increase. Although the actual transmission designations remained the same, there were improvements made to both the manual and automatic transmissions used on the coupe and convertible models. For the manual gearbox, the transmission linkage had shorter fore-aft travel. The 2008 Corvette’s steering feel was improved through the use of more precise machining, a stiffer intermediate shaft, and revised controller calibrations. These improvements created a more enjoyable driving experience for consumers, especially when piloting the Corvette during extreme driving conditions. While the 2008 model year suffered because of a global economic downturn, the engineers and designers at Corvette were continuing to work closely with the Corvette Racing program to develop some of the most innovative and exciting technology ever seen in the history of the car.
