Introducing the 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06

Chevrolet recently debuted the new 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, triggering excitement in loyalists and new fans alike. Here’s a brief overview of some of this model’s most exciting elements, as we wait for it to roll off the assembly line in summer of 2022.

For decades now, the iconic Corvette has attracted drivers with refined tastes who want a premium, customized supercar. That’s why the 2023 Z06 has a spectrum of options — from 12 exterior and seven interior color options to six brake caliper shades and seven wheel packages — so you can personalize your Z06 the way you want it.

And the 2023 model is the most potent ‘vette to date. An all-new 5.5-liter LT6 V8 engine that generates 670 horsepower makes it the highest horsepower, naturally-aspirated V8 on a production car to date.

The new Z06 is more aerodynamic than the C8, thanks to elements like the rear spoiler’s built-in wickerbill that increases downforce. The available carbon fiber aero package adds on front-corner canards, underbody aero strakes, a pedestal-mounted rear wing, and a larger front splitter.

Vice president of Chevrolet, Steve Hill, expresses how the 2023 Corvette Z06 takes the model to new heights. “The new Z06 delivers] increased levels of craftsmanship, personalization, and performance so customers can truly have their own bespoke performance car.”

The Copeland Chevrolet Hyannis team is stoked to welcome the new 2023 Corvette Z06 when it arrives here on our lot later next year. Stay tuned to our blog for more details about this model closer to its release date.

Tips for Saving Money on a Road Trip

Tips for Saving Money on a Road Trip | Hyannis, MA

Even though you’re driving your own car, road trip costs for gas, food, and entertainment can really add up. Use these tips for saving money on your next road trip adventure.

1. Plan ahead

Set a budget for your road trip and then look for hotel rooms and attractions in the city where you’re staying. You can even look into buying a city parking pass to save money on parking and know exactly where your next parking spot is.

2. Get your car in shape

Before heading out on your road trip, make sure the tires of your Chevy Equinox or Tahoe SUV are properly inflated, you have plenty of oil, and any mechanical issues are taken care of. All of these can improve your car’s gas mileage, not to mention help you avoid costly repairs while on the road.

3. Bring filling snacks and avoid restaurant stops

Getting fast food and stopping at restaurants for dinner can add up fast. A good way to avoid spending too much money on food is bringing healthy, filling snacks, like jerky, fruit with a decent shelf life like bananas and apples, nuts and seeds, and more. And for bigger meals, think about easy food to make on the go without heat, like sandwiches.

4. Use the library

If you want family-friendly books, audiobooks, and even streaming content to keep you and your kids occupied, save money by going to the library. Of course, you can also stream your favorite podcasts and music from your favorite streaming service for free.

Don’t spend your valuable time or vacation budget on a roadside emergency — before you hit the road for your next family getaway, bring your car in for a checkup at the Copeland Chevrolet Hyannis service center, in Hyannis, Massachusetts.
