  • Road Tests -- When?

    I was just looking back at the C7 magazine articles and noticed a pretty large gap between the car's introduction and the first real road tests. The car's announcement and overview was in March 2013 but thanks to magazine lead times the first road test was in Sept 2013. That's 6 months later.

    Does this mean we won't see an actual instrumented road test of the C8 until January 2020? (6 months from now) That's going to be a brutal wait!

    There have been a couple of media ride-alongs during testing, and I believe there was some testing at Road Atlanta with media in attendance, but that's not the same as full, independent tests with impressions gathered over days of driving under various conditions.

    It all depends on when GM have C8s ready to get beat on by the automotive journalists. They don't normally make early preproduction cars available for instrumented tests so we'll have to wait until BGA production begins.

      About five or six months from july for the release of actual test data seems to be an accurate assessment.

      that would leave bowling green time to get c8 s in the dealer showrooms as standard manufacturers practice.
