From the outside, the 1994 C4 Corvette appeared little changed from the previous year's models. Two new colors became available in 1994, however: admiral blue and copper metallic. And more changes came inside the 1994 C4.
For the first time, the C4 featured a passenger air bag, which replaced the glove compartment. The driver wasn't neglected either, with the provision of an express-down power window. Fresh new upholstery and door panels perked up the interior along with a new two-spoke steering wheel. Cloth upholstery disappeared from the seats, all of which were covered in leather. On the dashboard, instrument changed from white to orange as light turned to darkness.

The ZR1 did show some exterior change with the incorporation of new five-spoke wheels.
A new transmission, the 4L60-E four-speed automatic, featured electronic controls for smoother shifting. To shift from park into gear, the driver now had to tap the brake beforehand because of a safety interlock added to the transmission.
An improved fuel injection system for the LT1 small block led to lower emissions and better response. Meanwhile, GM made the first run-flat tires available — Goodyears that could go for 200 miles at 55 miles per hour in case a driver was a long way from the nearest service station.
The base price in 1994 was $36,185 for the coupe and $42,980 for the convertible. Production of the 1994 C4 Corvette ran to 17,984 coupes and 5,346 convertibles. A highlight of the year came when the Corvette Museum opened in Bowling Green, Ky., on Sept. 2.
