The owner of a white 1977 Corvette found out the hard way about the dangers of leaving the keys inside the vehicle when you’re not around.

Chevrolet Raises Pricing of 2018 Corvette Models a Mere $50


Chevrolet continues in the tradition of providing the best value for the performance with the Corvette and now we have the latest offerings for the 2018 model year. Each year the Corvette Team provides more ways to customize America’s favorite sports car so owners can set up their rides exactly how they want and the latest info continues that tradition.

Along with providing the information about the 2018 Corvettes in the official Corvette Order Guide, preliminary pricing for each of the models was also announced.

I’m not sure the last time that model pricing was announced before the bash, although the 2014 Corvette’s MSRP was announced the day of the Bash back in 2013. But looking through yesterday’s announcement of the 2018 Corvette Carbon 65 Edition was a fact sheet with the MSRP for each of the three models for 2018: Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06. The good news? Pricing is being increased by just $50 for each model.
