Here’s The 2020 Corvette C8’s Full Pricing And Equipment Details – And It’s A Steal

At the official unveiling of the new generation Corvette last month, GM President Mark Reuss said that it will start at under $60,000, and the official pricing information released by Chevrolet today reveals just that.

The 2020 Corvette Stingray 1LT will set you back $59,995, including the $1,095 destination charge. It’s also packed with more gear than you’d probably expect, such as: keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control, 8-inch infotainment system, 12-inch instrument cluster display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bose premium sound system, cruise control and 8-way power seats wrapped in Mulan leather.

Choosing the 1LT variant of the American supercar will also get you launch control, drive mode selector with Tour, Sport, Track, Weather, MyMode and Z-Mode driving modes, and the piece du resistance, the 6.2-liter, small block V8. The mid-mounted engine produces 490 horsepower (497 PS / 365 kW) and 465 pound-feet (630 Nm) of torque, matched to an eight-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, which sends the power to the rear wheels.

Other variants available are the 2LT and 3LT, which start at $67,295 and $71,945, respectively. The former adds a heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated seats, head-up display, wireless charging pad, navigation system, auto-dimming rear camera mirror, memory seats, more speakers for the Bose audio, universal home remote, SiriusXM sat-radio with 1-year subscription, side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert and others. The 3LT will get you the GT2 seats with Nappa and Mulan leather and carbon fiber trim, and custom leather for the rest of the interior.

You can also order the Z51 performance package on all trim levels, whose pricing remains unchanged at $5,000. It adds a front splitter and rear spoiler, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, enhanced cooling, front brake cooling inlets, larger brake discs, performance exhaust system and suspension with manually adjustable threaded spring seats, plus the electronic limited-slip differential. With the Z51 performance package, the new Corvette Stingray accelerates to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 3 seconds, almost a second faster than its predecessor.

The performance exhaust system, which lifts the output by 5 hp and 5 lb-ft (7 Nm) of torque, can also be ordered as a $1,195 standalone option, whereas the front suspension lift system, with available storage for up to 1,000 locations, will be available on the 2LT and 3LT for $1,495.

Customers can also personalize the new-gen Corvette by choosing one of the 12 exterior colors. For the cabin, they have 6 shades at their disposal, along with 2 stitching packages, 3 seat choices and 6 seatbelt colors.

Production of the 2020 Corvette Stingray will kick off at the end of the year at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly plant, in Kentucky.

    Good luck trying to locate one anywhere close to $60k after release.

    • db

      We all know you’re right but call it like it is, its not that it will be that hard to find one for $60k so much as it is to find one without an exorbitant stealership markup.

    • TheBelltower

      Only for the first eight months or so. Bowling Green will have to keep their workers busy, so they’ll crank out as many as they can as quickly as they can. There probably won’t be pent-up demand for long.

      • FFEMT6

        Said Tesla, uh, never.

    • Ken Lyns

      It’s good capitalism as American as apply pie.

      Although you shouldn’t buy any vehicle, let alone a GM product, within two years of release. Let the guinea pigs find all the bugs first.

  • Six_Tymes

    wow, this is surprising. I honestly didn’t think it was possible. Kudos to GM for this.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      My only worry is that all the money people say we are headed for a recession. Not the best time to launch a new car…

      • SteersUright

        I thought about that too…definitely want the corvette to do well and stick around for many more years

  • Bob

    As a non-American, this isn’t fair at all. I want some too.

    • Mr. EP9

      GM confirmed they’ll make a right hand drive version.

  • iggination

    1LT with z51 package looks like the perfect combo imo.

  • db

    As a three time owner of Corvettes, I say the first package is sufficient but I would still cough up the extra coin for the 2LT option in only for the front/rear cameras (it will save your dignity when parking) and the universal remote (face it, there isn’t plenty of room inside these things for any extras).
    On top of that, I would forgo the Z51 package but I would still opt for the Performance Exhaust.

    It may hard to part with the extra money initially but after a year or three, you won’t regret your decision.

    But I still hope the manual makes a return.

  • Nastinupe1911

    1LT with Z51 package. The car will never sell for under $30k as long as it’s kept in good condition. I’m thinking about test driving one and if I LOVE it I will sell my 911 (I can get around $55k) and buy a Corvette. That will be a jump in hp from 355 to 495 and moves the engine from the rear to MR. I’m expecting a better driving experience. Well at least that’s what I am hoping for. All for less than $20,000. That’s a great deal for me. I’ll spend $20,000 on upkeep and a few mods on my current 911.

          But it sounds like someone having a conversation with themself.

            It sounds as if he is talking to somebody on a phone and you only hear him talking.

  • Jason Miller

    “Under $60k!” Yeah, $5 under. You can barely buy lunch with that. All about the marketing and people just eat it up…

    • baofe

      I think you’re missing the point. Sure its right up to 60k but it’s still a mid engined Corvette for 60K!

    • eb110americana

      (Sorry for repeating myself, but the price is basically better than expected once you account for destination.) $58,900 before destination, which is how most competitors would state the price. I always liked that GM included destination in their quotes, as that is basically how all other products are sold.

  • Ben

    Anyone have experience with “run flat performance tires”? I’ve heard they’re terrible, but others say you won’t notice the difference. On a side note, I like they include tire temperature monitoring as well.

    • db

      I’ve been riding on them for twelve years now. Do you notice a difference, well they definitely don’t “float” over bumps but they really aren’t that bad either.

      If you live in a town with bad roads or where there are a lot of railway tracks, this car is just not your cup of tea.

      The really issue with them is, the rears are wider than the front and all the tires are unidirectional so rotating the tires is out of the question.

      And the kicker is runflats don’t hold up over as well as regular tires do. My first Corvette had close to 25k on it when I traded it in and the tires were pretty damn close to needing replacing. I was starting to slip in wet weather.

      • Ben

        I always thought they held up longer than traditional tires. Either way, sounds like the stock tires on the C8 won’t be too bad. I’ve always heard BMW drivers grumping about their run flats. So I’ve been suspicious of them.

        • db

          If you tracked your car and took it to its upper limits, I’m pretty sure traditional tires will hold up better performancewise and I can assure you they don’t have a long tread life however they do take the burden off the designers trying to find room to put a spare tire in the car.

          It is a trade off no doubt. Oftentimes even Corvette owners replace them with standard tires when replacements are needed and just call for a flatbed if a flat tire ever strands them.

        • Bronson Westlund

          Last two cars were BMW with run flats, I hate them with a passion! Granted I had staggered tires so I couldn’t really rotate them. They lasted 7,000 miles before getting too loud for me to stand. They won’t last as long, and I feel like they get loud quickly if you run them hard.

    • SteersUright

      They’re absolutely awful. I always replace them. They’re also significantly heavier and do not belong on performance cars, yet for owner convenience & I suppose to save the space taken up by a space, sadly they come equipped on many.

  • Leconte Dave

    The original price was in the mid 58k . Weird that they decided to change the price.

    • Ryan

      Maybe that was without destination.

    • eb110americana

      $58,900 before destination, which is how most competitors would state the price. I always liked that GM included destination in their quotes, as that is basically how all other products are sold.

      • db

        I agree, why even segregate destination in the first place. The buyer still has to pay for both of them anyways.

  • getoffme

    Am I seeing this correctly? No limited slip standard? Lol.

    • Emoto

      Mechanical LSD standard. Electronic optional.

  • Thunderbolt

    $7000 worth of electronic stuffs from 2LT is a lot of money and I think is a rip off, but neccessary so you can get the $1500 front lift with it. If I save $900 dollars a month from not having lap dances, and in a year I’ll have enough money to get the 2LT option.

    • Emoto

      So, you’re going to go cold jerky?

  • Bo Hanan

    If everybody buys their cars then “everybody” should see themselves in their car advertisements.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      How many times have you seen a black person in a Porsche advertisement?

  • SteersUright

    Outstanding bargain. Truly. Very excited for this and hope it shapes up to be a stellar car.
