We haven’t seen a mid-year price increase for the Corvette since the first or second year of the C7, but today we learned that Chevrolet is raising prices from $405 to $2,500 on 2019 Corvettes moving forward.
Thanks for our friends at Kerbeck Corvette in Atlantic City, we have new pricing even before its been updated on Chevrolet’s website. The new base prices along with the current price and increase amount are:
|Model||Old Price||New Price||Increase|
|Stingray Z51 Coupe||$60,495||$60,900||$405|
|Stingray Z51 Convertible||$64,495||$65,400||$905|
|Grand Sport Coupe||$65,495||$65,900||$405|
|Grand Sport Convertible||$69,495||$70,400||$905|
As you can see, the pricing changes affects those Corvettes more at the top of the performance pyramid than those at the bottom with $405 being the increase on the Stingray and Grand Sport coupes while the Z06 and ZR1 increased range from $1,405-$2,500. These prices above do not include $1,095 destination fee or the gas tax fees on the Z06 and ZR1.
But wait there’s more!
Chevrolet is also raising the price of the Corvette’s 8-Speed automatic paddle-shift transmission. The transmission is currently priced at $1,725 and will increase to $1,995. With 80% of Corvettes sold having the 8-speed auto, that RPO price increase will surely raise a bunch of dough as well.
Kerbeck tells us that the new Corvette prices only affects cars invoiced from this point on. Corvettes that currently available at dealers will not see the price increase and customers with Sold orders that are invoiced after today will also be price protected. See your Chevrolet dealers for any questions or concerns you may have.
