Corvette Stingray pricing

If you're in the market for a used C6, might want to wait until the end of the year. The market is probably going to be flooded.

Quote:
2014 Corvette Stingray Starts at $51,995

DETROIT – The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray coupe will have a suggested starting retail price of $51,995, and the Corvette Stingray Convertible will start at $56,995. Both prices include a $995 destination fee but exclude tax, title, and license. “The 2014 Corvette Stingray perfectly embodies Chevrolet’s mission to deliver more than
expected for our customers,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “The Corvette Stingray delivers a combination of performance, design and technology that very few manufacturers can match, and none can even come close for $52,000.”

Standard features on the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray include:
- Seating with lightweight magnesium frames for exceptional support, and eight-way power adjustment
- Five-position Drive Mode Selector that tailors up to 12 vehicle attributes
- New seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching
- 6.2L LT1 V-8 engine with direct injection, Active Fuel Management, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system
- Carbon fiber hood on all models, and a carbon fiber removable roof panel on coupes
- Aluminum frame that is 99 pounds lighter (45 kg) and 57-percent stiffer than the previous model’s structure
- Advanced, high-intensity discharge (HID) and light-emitting diode (LED) lighting
- Dual, eight-inch configurable driver/infotainment screens, with next-generation Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system and rear vision camera
- Bose nine-speaker audio system with SiriusXM Satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, USB and SD card and auxiliary input jack
- Keyless access with push-button start
- Power tilt/telescope steering wheel
- An all-new, fully electronic top on the convertible that can be lowered remotely using the key fob

As shown at the North American International Auto Show, the Stingray coupe fitted with the
major available options would be $73,360, including:
- 3LT interior package, with leather-wrapped interior ($8,005)
- Z51 Performance Package ($2,800)
- Competition sports seats ($2,495)
- Exposed-carbon-fiber roof panel ($1,995)
- Magnetic Ride Control with Performance Traction Management ($1,795)
- Dual-mode exhaust system ($1,195)
- Carbon fiber interior trim ($995)
- Sueded, microfiber-wrapped upper interior trim ($995)
- Red-painted calipers ($595)
- Black-painted wheels ($495)

The 3LT interior package includes: Bose, 10-speaker surround-sound audio system; SiriusXM Satellite radio with one-year subscription and HD radio receiver; color head-up display; memory package; navigation system; heated and ventilated seats with power lumbar and bolster adjustment; premium Napa leather seating surfaces; and leather-wrapped dash and instrument panel, console and door panels.

The Z51 Performance Package includes: high-performance gear ratios; transmission-cooling system; larger 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels and tires; larger, slotted rotors and brakecooling ducts; electronic limited-slip differential and differential cooling system; unique chassis tuning; and available Magnetic Ride Control active-handling system with Performance Traction Management.

Equipped with the Z51 package, the Corvette Stingray is capable of accelerating from 0–60 mph in under four seconds, and more than 1 g in cornering.

About Chevrolet
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.5 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet provides customers with fuel-efficient vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design and high quality.

Yeah, it still comes in cheaper than a fully loaded C6 GS though. They kind of combined the base and GS model into one with the C7.

That Z51 package is a must have option and quite a bargain at $2,800.

I like this body style SO much. The interior is "meh" but that body is so nice. To me it has just the right amount of "supercar" and "muscle" look. For the price I might really consider buying one of these.

MRC is also a must have option. Z51+MRC= comfortable ride on the road and awesome performance on the track.

The lead test driver said he's significantly faster in the C7 Z51 around VIR than the C6 GrandSport, even with 100+lb of equipment.

A 7speed manual is going to feel weird at first. I have always liked the stingrays.

Well that's a given. Even the $38,000 Camaro SS 1LE is faster than an M3 (or any other M car) on the track.

I wonder if the worldwide press will give it any love. Even fully loaded it's less than a Cayman S or 911 which I'm sure is the target. Chevy is on a roll for sure. Can't wait for the Z28 either.

The Z/28 should widen the gap. GM stated it was 3 seconds faster than the ZL1 during testing.

Me too, but it'll be a while. The convertible is the next Vette that Chevy has to bring to market.

I hope it's faster at the track. I took one out on the streets this weekend by a decent amount. Was a little upset about it considering I figured it would have been more of a challenge for my 135i. >.<

Rumors are a 7.0L version of the LT1 with 600hp.
