Chevrolet Offers Up to $3500 in New Incentives on 2017 Corvettes


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.
