The big news - and it was very big - was the appearance of the ZR-1 on the option list. It had been rumored for some time, even missing a 1989 introduction.

Supplemental Restraint Systems (better known as airbags) were the law of the land for all cars manufactured after September 1989 and they were added to the Corvette on the driver's side for the 1990 model year. A whole new dashboard was part of the deal and for 1990 it was comparatively retro, eschewing the digital gauges first seen in the 1984 model year. The digital approach had been controversial and was replaced with a more analog system. A nicely functioning glove box was a welcome sight for the passengers.
