We were shocked to learn that the C8 Corvette Stingray would be available for under $60,000. In a press release today, they announced it would be $5 under that price. The best aspect of the 2020 Corvette pricing announced is that it also includes the MSRP of the option packages. Your standard car is the 1LT. It arrives with more features than we anticipated.
Corvette 1LT has 4-Corner E-boost brakes, stability control, launch mode, and the driver mode selector. But you only get 10 Bose speakers. Corvette 2LT starts at $67,295, and it adds a full-color HUD, power lumbar seats, heated steering wheel, Performance Data Recorder, garage door opener, and 14 Bose speakers. Corvette 3LT is $71,945, and it includes all those features and arrives with a full-leather interior and GT2 seats. No Alcantara here, its real suede on the roof and upper interior panels.
A few options can be added to trim level. Performance exhaust is needed to achieve 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque: $1,195. A front suspension lift is available on 2LT and 3LT, and it stores 1,000 locations in GPS for $1,495. Finally, the Z51 Performance Package is available across all trim levels. It includes performance exhaust, adjustable coil-over suspension, front splitter, rear spoiler, larger brakes, a 3rd engine radiator, performance differential gearing, and brake cooling ducts. All this can be had for $5,000. We know the Corvette convertible is coming soon, and these packages might be adjusted for being able to topless. I would order a 1LT Z51 along with the magnetic ride suspension and the tinted glass roof panel. Head over to their visualizer to build your ideal combination, and tell us in the comments below.
