2016 Chevy Corvette Convertible in Edmonton, AB
Since the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette arrived at the Don Wheaton showroom, the platform keeps raising the ante for refinement among one of the most well-thought of cars in automotive history. All of the criticisms that were levied against the C6 generation of the Corvette have been eliminated, making having a drop-top all the more desirable. The 2016 Chevy Corvette Convertible in Edmonton, AB at Don Wheaton brings some of the best performance scores in the class to the forefront and offers one of the most advanced convertible tops that have ever been built. Unlike previous Corvette convertibles or what is offered by the Ford Mustang, owners of the 2016 Corvette Convertible can open and close the top with a push of a button and never have to touch the unit.
Hands-free operation of the rag-top on the 2016 Chevy Corvette Convertible in Edmonton, AB is just the beginning. Chevy engineers chose materials that will hold the roofline to be more congruent with the hard top version. Additionally, drivers will be able to open and close the convertible top while traveling at speeds up to 30 miles per hour. This technology is so cutting edge that it has been included with the new Camaro Convertible as well. The interior of the 2016 Corvette Convertible has never been more driver-centric. Unlike previous years, the center stack is sharply angled toward the driver which given he or she easier access to various controls and systems like the Chevy MyLink infotainment system. Also new for the 2016 Corvette Convertible is the ability to pair the infotainment system with the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto suites of applications.
