If you’re in the market for a new Corvette now is probably one of the best buying periods since the C7 Corvette was released in 2013. Chevrolet produced a whole lot of 2017 Corvettes and dealers took the additional vehicles knowing that their sales of Corvettes during the assembly plant’s three-month shutdown for upgrades would come from this existing inventory.
But after last month’s sales report that showed dealers had sold just 1,506 Corvettes (and many of them being 2018 models), Chevrolet is now offering a couple of incentive programs to try to get those 2017 Corvettes moving quicker off of dealer lots. These two new incentives will run through the month of October and end on 10/31/2017.
The first is a loyalty incentive targeting those that own or lease a 1999 or newer Chevrolet. We have seen previous loyalty incentives target just those that own a Corvette, so this is a big incentive for the automaker. Bring in a copy of your title, vehicle registration or lease contract and you’ll be able to take an additional $3,000 off the purchase of a 2017 Corvette!
The second incentive program targets regions that were impacted by both Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Texas, Florida, and Louisiana. General Motors is offering a $500 Select Market Bonus Cash Program off the purchase of a 2017 or 2018 in-stock Corvette. To take advantage of the bonus cash program, you must reside in one of these regions:
Austin, Beaumount, Harlingen, Houston, Laredo, San Antonio, Victoria, and Waco.
Ft. Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, Panama City, Tallahassee, Tampa, and West Palm Beach.
These incentives are “additional” to the price meaning the pricing you see on a dealer’s inventory most likely will not reflect the extra savings. So check with your dealer to see if you qualify for either of these new sales incentives.
As these incentives are for a dealer’s current inventory, you may find your local dealer doesn’t have the Corvette with your preferences.
