2001 chevrolet corvette for sale 1
Fast Facts:

  • The Corvette’s LS1 engine received significant changes in 2001. While overall power increased, the engineering team’s goal was to provide a sizeable increase in low end torque (where drivers feel it most). 300 lb ft is now delivered @ 1,000 RPM (400rpm less than before), 320 lb ft is now @ 1400 RPM (800rpm less than before), and most notably, 340 lb ft is delivered @ 2500RPM – a substantial 1400 RPM less than before. Automatic cars were rated @ 360 lb ft torque, while manuals are rated @ 375 lb ft
  • Corvettes with the automatic transmission accelerate from 0-60 a full second faster than 2000MY models. When equipped with the Performance axle (3.15), the automatic accelerates as fast as the previous year’s manual trans Corvette
  • New 2nd generation Active Handling has been revised from the 1st gen based on customer feedback. Much less intrusive stability/traction control systems, and a new Competitive mode that allows TC to be switched off
  • The Z06 is released for the first time this year, featuring its own unique “FE4” suspension. As a popular upgrade, owners of base model C5’s will fit this FE4 suspension on their cars, creating the closest possible example of a C5 “Grand Sport” (a base Corvette with Z06 suspension)
  • While having a transmission in the rear significantly improves the C5’s weight distribution and handling, another side benefit is no transmission tunnel – increasing interior space for passengers
Key Model Year Changes:

  • 2001 received the most significant changes in the C5’s production run
  • New LS6 composite intake manifold and camshaft profile lead to a power increase and much broader torque curve
  • 2nd generation Active Handling
  • Better noise insulation (added seals and expandable foam), better idle quality (thanks to new alternator clutch pulley on auto cars)
  • Exhaust manifolds are now thin-wall cast iron (vs previous stainless steel

  • New AGM battery, which is lighter, vibration absorbent, and more durable
  • Driveshaft is now an aluminum 6061 alloy (vs the old metal matrix composite). Diameter is increased from 55 to 63mm
  • Automatic transmission case is lightened by 3.3 lbs. Manual transmission is revised as well
  • Chrome exhaust tips
  • New slim remote key fob
  • New electrochromatic side mirrors
