  • C7’s Pioneered Enhancements

    We were wowed by the looks of the C7 when it first appeared. In the first few months after I got mine, many of my then-still-C6 owners asked me, “what about the C7 besides its looks, makes it special to you.

    I responded that the steering system was excellent, that on many less than perfect roads where no traffic, in my C6 I always needed two hands on the wheel to keep it centered in my lane, while the C7, one handing is almost always perfect (again in no traffic situations). Secondly I added, that “the seats are such an improvement, that even on 600 miles days, my back feels great.”

    What C7’s major enhancements did you find?

    The C7’s customization dash. It is wonderful to be able to make adjustments to not just what I see, and also my exhaust sound level, my suspension, all while at the driver’s seat. I remember Tadge saying at the 1.13.13 weekend next night dinner, that “there was 69 different dash adjustments you can make.”

      The seats were definitely a good step forward. From a performance standpoint, the continued development of the PTM system - first used on the C6 ZR1, and then expanded in capability and range and spread across the C7 line-up was a very meaningful improvement over the 6.

      The chassis control of the 7 is significantly enhanced over the 6. Given the traction advantages of a read/mid layout, if that is combined with a similar step forward on PTM development that the 7 enjoyed over the 6, the ME could well show up as one heck of a driver's car.

        I'll agree that the seats are better. Overall, the interior materials are better.

        The HUD gets better every generation. When I drive my C5 now I realize how primitive it is even though it was cutting edge when it was new.

        My C6 was a base coupe and my C7 is a Z06 so it's apples to oranges but the C7 brakes are way better.

        Even small things like the cargo shade are so much better. The one piece in the C6 would flop around if the top was out. But I can't say the C7 cargo net is better because it isn't.
