Folks on the Corvette Forum have been hearing from their dealers that Chevrolet’s Order Workbench for the 2020 Corvette Stingray is opening this week. Those working with dealers will have a chance to spec out their custom orders and once pricing is released, the order can then be finalized.
The good news is we won’t have to wait very long as full pricing on the 2020 Corvette Stingray is expected on August 15th.
There’s a lot of moving parts when it comes to this process.
Chevrolet is using the extended order window to gauge demand on options and accessories and they’ll be working with their suppliers to make certain options a priority. Hopefully, we won’t have the kind of constraints that impacted some of the major items on the C7 Corvette’s rollout like the visible carbon fiber roofs and the carbon fiber interior trim panels.
It’s also important to note that just because a dealer tells you that you are high on their list that it doesn’t mean you’ll get your C8 in that order. Sold Orders from dealers will have to match allocations and constraints before they picked up by Chevrolet and added to the production schedule. Unfortunately, we may not know what the constraint window looks like until production is ready to go.
Although not confirmed, we have heard that the production will start with the most popular exterior colors first. The new colors will come on soon after, yet we are hearing that Rapid Blue may take a little longer, so all these factors will affect the timing of your order within Chevrolet order system.
If you’re looking for a ray of sunshine during this process, the good news is that many dealers we know are committed to selling the new 2020 Corvette Stingray at MSRP so make sure you confirm with your dealer that there are no “market adjustments” when it comes to signing on the dotted line.
