We found out this morning from National Corvette seller Mike Furman that some preliminary pricing has been announced for the 2016 Corvette Stingray and Z06. Full 2016 Corvette pricing is still expected later this month, but according to Mike, all Corvettes models will be receiving a $400 increase for the new year. We were actually expecting to see at least a $1,000 bump in price so only $400 is something we can live with.
Official 2016 Corvette Pricing Has Been Released
In addition to the across-the-board increase, also released are the prices for the three Design Package RPOs and the MSRP for the 2016 Corvette C7.R Edition.
The three Design Packages require either the Stingray 3LT or the Z06 3LZ. Then, depending on which of the three Design Packages you order, it will include the following charge:
- Twilight Blue Design Pkg (ZLD): $3,500 MSRP
- Spice Red Design Pkg (ZLE): $3,500 MSRP
- Black Suede Design Pkg (ZLG): $3,995 MSRP
The Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition Coupe requires the Z06 3LZ package and the preliminary MSRP will start at $111,400 which doesn’t include the $995 delivery fee.
The C7.R Edition can be ordered in Corvette Racing Yellow or Black exteriors.
There is a lot included in the C7.R Edition but some of the highlights for the exterior are the Black Z06 wheels with the yellow stripe, yellow brake calipers, visible carbon-fiber package, the new visible carbon-fiber hood, Spectra Gray grille and vents and a unique C7.R graphics package. Inside you’ll find a Jet Black leather trimed and suede-wrapped interior, Competition Sport seats with embossed/laser-etched logos, yellow contrast stitching and the carbon fiber interior package. A very cool indoor car cover with the C7.R racing graphics is also included.
The 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition is limited to just 500 units and its expected availability is during the 4th quarter of this year. So if there is interest, you should get with your Chevrolet dealer immediately.
The 2016 Corvette Model Year will begin production on Monday, June 22nd. For more on the changes to the 2016 Corvette, check out our video from the Corvette Museum Bash or click here to download the 2016 Corvette Order Guide.
