Chevrolet Raising Prices on the 2014 Corvette Stingray

When Chevrolet initially priced the 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe at $51,000 and the Convertible at $56,000, we were shocked at how much car an owner was getting for the money. Add to the fact that the very popular Z51 performance package added a mere $2800 to the sticker price and we can see how that pricing eventually led to demand outpacing supply.

To help meet the demand, Chevrolet is raising the prices on both the base Corvette Stingray Coupe and Convertible, which will see their prices go up $2,000. The Z51 package increases $1,200 for a total package cost of $4,000.

In direct comparison, only 908 new Corvettes were sold in January 2013. The January 2014 figure is the lowest number of Corvettes delivered since last September when the new C7 Corvettes started shipping and the dip in sales is most likely a combination of the plant being closed for the holidays as well as the winter weather that covered much of the United States last month.
