New Mid-Engine Corvette Has Surprising Price Tag

General Motors' Chevrolet division has announced the price for the new rear-mid engine Corvette and it is a pleasant surprise for fans. Chevy says the new Corvette's base price is $59,995. Fans will want to take note that the price does include the destination fee. For a vehicle with such amazing capabilities, this price point is almost unprecedented. “Most people thought when we moved the Corvette to mid-engine it would no longer be attainable, but we knew we couldn’t mess with a winning formula and the 2020 Stingray proves it,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet U.S. vice president.

 

What may be even more of a surprise, is that the highest-trim of the Corvette, the 3LT,  has a price tag of $72K.  You can view the features and content breakdown below. GNM isn't holding anything back it seems. The full pricing and order guide is now available at CHevrolet's website for future owners to check out. If shoppers still have questions, Chevy has set up a dedicated Chevrolet Corvette Concierge team that will provide 2020 Corvette customers with answers about the vehicle discovery, buying and ownership process. The team, which is based at General Motors headquarters in Detroit, is working 12-hour shifts each workday and can be reached by calling 866-424-3892. (Our apologies for the image quality)

A buddy of mine is ordering a 2LT and its every bit of $70K. $59,995 sounds nice but just adding the Z51 pkg bumps you up

Dang, that sucks. I was really excited to finally be able to afford a Corvette as a summer vehicle, was going to trade in my 2015 truck for one, but that is a huge jump from the base to the 3LT Z51. $75k usd is $100k CAD. The base model will sell here for $70,000 CAD, which is about $3k MSRP cheaper than my spec All Terrain/AT4. Too bad so sad for me, guess I will keep hunting for the elusive, perfect C6 Z06. Congrats to all the people that will be buying one of these, it's a huge piece of Corvette history.

He actually just got it priced out yesterday and it is around 80K. Seems most everything is a separate option. Mag ride isn’t in the suspension pkg but rather separate.

With how popular this new car is, anyone putting a order in at the dealer now won't see a car until next summer.

I think it will be NA based on hearing the C8.R testing. The car will have to feature an engine derived from a production model to meet IMSA rules. The race car really sounds like a flat plane crank V8. I think you will see the Z06 debut with a flat plate NA engine in the neighborhood of 7L that will rev north of 7,000rpm, dubbed the LT7.

It's the Porsche pricing scheme, they have been doing it for years, GM started a few years ago but people are just now noticing

But isn't it was most of us are asking for?

Build it like you want it instead of having to buy a whole package for just one desired option?

 

so long

      General Motors expects its next-generation Corvette to boost sales significantly, and GM is staffing up to build the car. The current generation Corvette was introduced in January 2013. With the new Corvette set for an official launch this July, that means the Corvette design we all know and love is now six and a half years old. The last of the outgoing generation Corvettes - a black 2019 Z06 model -  has been donated to charity by GM. The final seventh-gen Corvette will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast sale in Connecticut June 28.
       

       
      GM will be adding a second shift to its Bowling Green, KY factory. That will boost jobs at the plant by 400. “The Corvette’s iconic status owes so much to the men and women of Bowling Green, where it has been built exclusively for almost 40 years,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra. “This is the workforce that can deliver a next-generation Corvette worthy of both its historic past and an equally exciting future, and today’s announcement gets us one step closer to its reveal on July 18.” GM has built more than 1 million Corvettes at the Bowling Green factory since it opened in 1981. The plant currently generates more than $76 million in state wages and $15 million in income tax. 
       

       
      GM-Trucks.com will bring you more information on the new Corvette once Chevrolet releases details.

      This is the first of two GM-Trucks.com 2020 C8 Corvette exclusives.
      CLICK HERE TO READ PART TWO
       
      Images of the C8 mid-engine Corvette logo have been out in the open since late November. They showed up on a leaked key fob undergoing certification last fall with the FCC. The internet has run wild with speculation since but no-one has gotten their hands on a real digital version of the 2020 Corvette's logo. Only enthusiast renders based on the leaked fob.... Until now. 
       
      GM-Trucks.com has the first exclusive look at the official logo in digital format. We won't comment specifically on how we obtained it. We can say it was obtained from publicly available files by a third party and passed along to us. 
       
      Enjoy!
       

       
      Tomorrow, we'll give you the very first look at the 2020 Corvette's dash cluster start up animation.

      Yesterday we brought you an exclusive look at the new logo for the 2020 C8 Corvette in a digital high-resolution format. Although the logo had been previously rendered through a leaked key fob passing through FCC certification, GM-Trucks.com gave you the very first official version of the emblem in digital format. 
       
      Today, we've got part two and it's even better: 
      A brand new, never before seen, blacked out version of the 2020 Corvette's iconic emblem The corresponding gauge cluster startup animation Your first look at the brand new Corvette script  
      First things first, what's a startup animation? Well, these days a lot of new GM products use an LCD display in the gauge cluster, or even use a display as the entire gauge cluster. The C7 Corvette (and now C8) uses a large 8-ish inch screen for most of the gauge cluster.  When you open the door, the gauge cluster "starts up" showing an animation, usually with the Chevrolet logo or in this case the Corvette's logo and script. Our 2019 Silverado LTZ has a Chevy Logo animate on it's 4 inch gauge cluster display. 
       
      This is a C7's Gauge Cluster. See that huge screen? The C8 is going to have a variation of that. Maybe the same, maybe larger. 

       
      Interesting to note, this crossed flags emblem is not the same as the logo we leaked yesterday. Instead of a chrome surround it sports a blacked out trim. It looks mean, nasty, and one may presume it just may be destined for a performance variant of the Corvette. Is this the emblem for the rumored Zora model?
       
      We won't comment specifically on how we obtained this animation. We can say it was collected from publicly available file by a third party and passed along to us. 
       
      This is the gauge cluster start up animation for the up-level (Zora?) 2020 C8 Corvette
       
      Here's a closer look at that blacked out emblem variation

       
      And here's a closer look at the 2020 Corvette Logo Script- which has evolved from it's C7 form

       
      Here's the C7 logo and script for comparison

       
      What do you think? Are you excited for the Corvette to go mid-engine? Do you think Chevy's graphical updates to the logo and script are living up to the hype of the 2020 Corvette?

      Sure, we're a truck website. But gosh darn do we love a nice Corvette.
       
      With rumors swirling over the past few years that Chevy would move to a mid-engine configuration in some form during the Corvette's eighth generation, heads have been exploding trying to find out more. We've wanted more. You've wanted more. Will there be a mid-engine vette and what will it look like? We just want to know. We just HAVE to know. 
       
      And now... we do. 
       
      Yesterday our spy photographer contacted with some mind blowing photos and we couldn't wait to share them with you today. We purchased the rights to post them here immediately. 
       
      Behold, Spy Shots of the all new 2020 C8 Corvette undergoing testing at the Nurburgring in Germany. There are OVER 75 photographs. So, we put them all in a image gallery here. Some of our favorites are posted below but to see them all click on to the image gallery. Expect this all new mid-engine Corvette to debut in the next year and go on sale in 2020.
