January 2018 Corvete Sales


General Motors has released the first sales report for 2018. For Corvette, it was the worst selling month since the introduction of the C7 generation.

Chevrolet reports that a total of 1,005 Corvettes were sold during the month. That was a 20% drop from the previous lowest month of C7 production, January 2017 which saw 1,263 Corvettes delivered to new buyers.

Sales were obviously impacted by the model year changeover which started earlier this week with 2019 Corvettes beginning production. We also believe that Mother Nature did her part by putting much of the nation in a deep freeze earlier in the month.

Chevrolet is still offering $2,017 Bonus Cash Allowance on all 2017 Corvettes. That offer goes away on 2/12 so we’ll be checking for any new offers after that date.

Here’s the GM Sales Report for Corvettes in January 2018:

  1. That’s seems to be some alarming news for GM……I had an ’06 Corvette and loved it! I will always like the
    sports car flagship for GM but it’s pricing is way to high for the general public in my opinion? Now price and horsepower are everything in that specific market…..the Ford GT500 which boasts about 662hp straight from the factory at around $70K………Hellcat 707HP for the same $70K……..then you have the Stingray base 1LT model for that same $70K with 460HP……..doesn’t add for me! My money will be at Ford/Dodge for the HP to price difference even though my heart is with the Corvette!

  2. Won’t sell well if you don’t advertise, Chevrolet. I can’t remember ever seeing a TV ad for the Corvette.
    I see the Dodge hotrods, even the Kia Stinger, but NO ‘Vette.
