1985 Corvette:
New Fuel Injection Technology

1985 Corvette
All the Corvette news for 1985 was under the hood. The "Cross-Fire Injection" of 1984 (and 1982) fame was gone as was the label on the side molding. A real no-compromise fuel injection system, not seen on a Corvette since 1965, took its place. It was a Bosch designed and built system and was the source of significant improvements in power (was 205 hp, now 230 hp) and fuel economy.

Chevrolet listened to the customers who told them that the C4 Corvette's ride was too harsh and lowered spring rates so being transported via Corvette was that much less punishing. The more compliant suspension also meant fewer rattles and squeaks. The Performance Handling Package option (Z51; $470.00) saw reduced spring rates but anti-sway bar diameters were increased to keep that handling edge.

1985 Corvette interior
The 1985 interior was the same as 1984 except that the instrument panel display was updated for improved readability. At some point in the 1985 production run, the overdrive defeat switch was moved from the console to the shifter. The sport seat was available in leather along with cloth. Note the emergency brake handle location, in the door sill below the driver's left knee. It had been part of the center console in the C3 and the new location was a departure from the sports car roots.
