  • Adjustable Front Lift Height - Option E60

    The option for the Adjustable Front Lift Height - E60 was touched upon during the reveal. As this car sits pretty low, this option will be an important one that Corvette owners have been asking for. A concern for anyone with a low riding modern day sports car is...are you going to remember to push the button?Turns out you may not have to!

    It was said during the reveal that they would employ GPS to workin conjunction with each time you raise the front end. You can save the exact location to memory (Up to 1,000 locations) so you won't have to constantly remember to lift when you arrive at your usual points such as your home, store or office. Now the only question is How much?

    Just my thinking but if your in an area which is unknown to you, What good is it going to do for you? By the time you hear that dreadful scrape or even worse cracking it's too late to go - Oh maybe I should have pushed the button 5 seconds ago. Sounds impressive with 1000 points to reference, but your never going to know untill it's too late anyway.

      We have a lot of unpaved roads around here, including the road I live on. Its 1.3 miles from my driveway to the paved road system.

      I assume if I hit the button to manually lift the front of the car, it will remain lifted until I hit the button again to lower it?

        I saw where the lift is $1500, but that is rumor and of course you will need GPS so, 2LT LKG another $5,000 inclusive of GPS??? but most order the 2LT PKG anyway ( Most Popular). And for the most part if it only raises the car 2 in. then in some instances that may not be enough. But to at least be able to program a daily route as your driveway etc, that would and will be a neat feature especially if there is a capacity of 1,000 memories.

          I think the real answer is a Stainless Steel Skid Plate mounted to the frame under the car. 2 inches isn't going to cut it. We've already seen many spy videos of the bottom scraping.

            Good OP question, e.g., how much? We do not know yet.

            As to the next question, I asked an engineer last night and this system is designed to work at a maximum speed limit as competitors similarly have such a limit. It is 24 MPH for the C8.

            It is not an automatic height leveling system. It is a 2” raising system IF you choose to flip the switch, and second IF you tell the screen prompt you wish to save that setting, next time you can space out. But new roads and new situations are still going to have to involve our smarts the first time.

              And you can’t drive over 24 mph anywhere you count on it saving you.

                You can of course press the button to manually raise the front. I agree that a sensor system to automatically raise the front would be cool, but it would need to work extremely fast and be 100% accurate or owners would complain. I prefer the lighter system in the C8 with geotagging, which is still freakin' amazing if you ask me.

                  That system will add weight to the car right?

                    Yes, it will.

                      If you raise the car and GPS for automatic lift for a speed bump in one direction, does it raise going in the opposite direction or does it have to be set for the opposite direction?

                        The system will lift the car when approaching the bump from any direction.

                          My guess is IF the location has been defined via GPS in the memory it is now a stored waypoint and as such the car will raise as it approaches from any direction and compensate for the approach speed.

                            From my point of view, I can replace the front splitter of the Z51 five times for the cost of the lifting systems. Here, they add bumps everywhere and I prefer to be warn and aware of they can be anywhere...

                            this way, I take care of my car and I put 1500$ on someting else with more value added (for me )

                              V1 VR, I believe you are correct.

                              Keep in mind, we all will need to learn the limitations of this lift system. I am sure GM has been exercising (and adjusting) it’s operation. Once in customers hands, I have visions of hearing complaints that the system didn’t lift in time, or even failed to lift at all. I expect the Operators manual will include a statement of warning of limitations. We all see our cell phones show GPS accuracy within a few feet. However, annual government tests of GPS accuracy have shown that in some situations the GPS can be off as much as 55 ft on a clear day with no obstructions. Put the GPS receiver in a moving vehicle, in heavy overcast rain in the middle of the city of tall buildings and well, you see the issue. My guess the GM engineers have included some “safety factor” for position accuracy and even some adjustments after test use in the field. In the end, the driver is responsible for operating and avoiding obstacles, the lift system can help in most situations, but maybe not all.
