Is Chevrolet putting forth major efforts to move the Corvette upscale?

Airing for the first time tonight is an all-new 2011 Corvette commercial. The ad marks the first Corvette-exclusive commercial Chevrolet has aired in years. Between this new commercial, Corvette's new "Engine Build Experience" and other moves seem indicative that the bow-tie brand is eagerly attempting to move the Corvette's image upscale.

The new commercial compares the Corvette with that of a space rocket by correlating the innovation and craftsmanship of a rocket to that of the Corvette. Throughout the majority of the ad Chevrolet showcases scenes of assemblers hand-building the Corvette Z06 and ZR1 engines. Toward the end of the ad the commentator clenches at the American heritage of the 56 year old icon by saying, "America still builds rockets."

Several weeks ago General Motors assigned a former Cadillac communications employee to be the lead public relations person for the Corvette. GM has not specified why they are now placing so much effort on the marketing and public relations behind the Corvette-- a product that has been on the market since 2004.

It certainly leads us to believe that GM is eager to push their corporate flagship's image up to the level of the car's performance capability.

I remember in the late 90s I was hoping by this time that electronic valvetrains were going to be in cars like the Corvette.

I can't wait till we get rid of the cam/cams all together.

I saw this commercial for the first time on TV this morning. It's awesome! I wish I could afford that rocket!

elcamino85 07-14-2010 02:47 AM

I saw the commercial and was shocked to see one. Pretty bad ass one too. Now the Camaro needs one. I'm so happy national league won.

Treadstone 07-14-2010 09:19 AM

The corvette should be in almost every gm/chevy commercial. It's the flagship, especially the zr1 - the king.

KILLER74Z28 07-14-2010 10:08 AM

IT KICKS A$$!

OH PLEASE GM GIVE US SOMTHING THIS AWESOME FOR OUR BELOVED CAMARO... ;)

While the commercial might appear to be cool, why would you want one? The only reason for commercials are to sell the product, and the only reason you would see a camaro commercial would be if GM was having trouble selling the camaros:yikes:

Michael_Js 07-14-2010 02:26 PM

Nah, commercials are good! Cool one!
too bad they don't list the '11's on the site yet like they do the '11 Camaros! ;)
