Future Chevy Cars Will Adopt Corvette Styling
Certain car brands evoke an impression of high-performance and speed, no matter how far down the company lineup you travel. The current lower, or at least more frugal, offerings from Chevrolet don’t exactly conjure up thoughts of tire-smoking Corvettes or Camaros. However that’s apparently about to change. In a recent interview with Automotive News, GM’s vice president of global design, Ed Welburn, said some of the Corvette’s most remarkable styling cues will find their way onto an array of Chevrolet’s next-generation cars.

“As Malibu and Cruze and Volt come to market, you’ll be able to see a subtle link between some of the form vocabulary for all of them and Corvette.” The most recent C7 iteration, regarded by fans as America’s supercar, features taut and muscular styling cues redolent of high performance. Welburn continued, “That will be a part of really everything we do for Chevrolet.”
We’re hoping – quite doubtfully – that a few 6.2-liter V8s will port over into the lower models, too. Jesting aside, the design shift should help Chevrolet bolster sales and enhance its brand identity with unified styling from its most heritage nameplate.

According to Welburn, the Corvette C7’s sculpted hood and angular taillights will shepherd the design language of these upcoming Chevrolet models, many of which are expected to debut within the next year. The next-gen Volt makes its first appearance next month at the Detroit Auto Show (teaser above).
Now that we’re on the topic, what other design aspects of the Chevrolet Corvette and Camaro need to carry over? Quad exhausts on a Cruze, anyone?
