The Corvette, redesigned in 2014, underwent its most dramatic redesign in decades. But as radical as the new look was compared to previous Vettes, they made sure to keep essentials unchanged—a powerful V-8 and a manual. The new seven-speed manual transmission (an eight-speed automatic is optional) is one of the best hooked to any V8. And that’s true even for the top Z06 model.
When you first feel behind the wheel of a manual car, it’s good to understand how to use the car’s features that will be studied. Especially the steering system features such as the location of the gas pedal, brakes, and clutch.
Up shift indicators have been around for a long time, but such fuel-saving minders are the bane of enthusiasts who enjoy revving their car’s engine a bit. However, a different readout in modern manual-equipped cars — the gear-position indicator — is a bit more useful, especially as manuals have added forward gears in recent years. Like the previously mentioned 911, the Chevrolet Corvette offers a seven-speed manual with a gear-position indicator in its instrument panel. It’s a helpful reminder of the gear you’re in.
