Official pricing for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is now out, and true to its promise, GM is making the sports car available for less than $60,000. It will start at exactly $59,995 when it goes on sale early next year. That means the new C8 Corvette is pricier than the C7 Corvette Stingray it replaces, albeit not by much—the C7 started at $56,995. Still, the new model is a bargain against cars like the Porsche 718 Cayman S, Jaguar F-Type, and BMW Z4 sDrive M40i, all of which are among the list of sports cars with higher price tags. The base Corvette Stingray is the 1LT, which comes with plenty of standard features, which we’ve listed below. The 2LT starts at $67,295, while the 3LT is priced from $71,945.
Prices naturally increase with the following options:
Performance exhaust, $1,195 – Raises output from 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque to 495 hp and 470 lb-ft.
Front-axle lift, $1,495. Available only with the 2LT and 3LT trims, this system not only raises the nose at the press of a button but also stores up to 1,000 such locations in the cloud. The next time you approach the location, the lift system activates automatically.
Z51 Performance Package, $5,000. Z51 is available on any trim and allows the C8 Corvette to hit 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds. This package adds the performance exhaust as well as a more aggressive suspension tune, an electronic limited-slip differential, a front splitter, new rear spoiler, larger brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S summer tires, a revised rear-axle ratio, enhanced cooling, and front brake-cooling inlets.
