Chevrolet Corvette ZR1: 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 Still In The Way

The Chevrolet Corvette is great right now but it is still trailing behind the Ford Mustang. New reports are saying that Chevrolet is looking into upgrading the Chevrolet Corvette model but will it be enough.

The more powerful version will be called the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and it is said that it will be fitted with an upgraded engine that will be able to offer about 700hp when Chevrolet is done with it. The most powerful Corvette that Chevrolet is offering right now delivers about 650hp so the ZR1 is getting a huge upgrade.

However, we also know that the 2018 Ford Mustang GT500 will be coming in with an engine that will be pushing out close to 800hp when it arrives. If that is true, the Chevrolet Corvette is far from actually threatening the Mustang.

There were also speculations about Dodge possibly looking to upgrade their Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat model. The model currently offer 707hp so we can expect the upgraded model to offer slightly more.
