    2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    2020 MID-ENGINE CHEVROLET CORVETTE STINGRAY STARTS AT $59,995
    Chevrolet
    August 15, 2019



    • Stingray is capable of 194 mph top track speed
    • Preorder at Chevrolet.com or by visiting a preferred Chevrolet dealer


    DETROIT — With its new mid-engine configuration and sleek, modern design, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray offers unprecedented performance at a starting price of $59,995 (including Destination Freight Charge of $1,095, excluding tax, title, license, dealer fees and optional equipment).

    “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.

    The 1LT will start at $59,995, the 2LT trim package will start at $67,295 and the top-level 3LT trim package on the 2020 Corvette Stingray will start at $71,945 (including DFC, excluding tax, title, license, dealer fees and optional equipment). Specific details on each trim level are covered in the attached graphic.

    “We’ve packed a lot of performance into the Corvette Stingray at this price when you consider an eight-speed dual clutch transmission, Small Block V-8 and engine-mounted dry sump oil system are all standard,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer.

    Interested Chevrolet Corvette Stingray shoppers can view a pricing guide with available options and order codes and preorder their vehicle by visiting the 2020 Corvette reveal page at Chevrolet.com.

    A dedicated Chevrolet Corvette Concierge team 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, can be reached by calling 866-424-3892. Customers can also live chat with a Corvette Concierge online by visiting Chevrolet.com. The team is available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EDT Mondays through Fridays.

    The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray goes into production at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly in late 2019.

    Has anyone seen a chart or article about Corvette affordability over the years - meaning something live the base price vs. the cost of a house or average salary?

    Edit, found something, though a little older, but still works.

    Looks like great deal for people that want a low cost of entry and the top is pretty reasonable too

    From the early reviews and pictures, the C8 might be the greatest bargain in automotive history. Sure, it will get very expensive in some trims, just like the the C7. But a $60K base is a screaming bargain.

    Re: 2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    I've not bought a first year vette before as they go for sticker and zero bargaining power. I may just do it on this one. It is compelling to say the least. I need to see one in person. A local dealer is supposed to be on the road show in october, so will take a look. But a 2LT/Z51 at around 75 to 80. Sweet. Maybe get in on the 2nd round allocations for the 2020 model. Unfortunately, I'll probably have to connect up with one of the big 3 dealers to actually get one at MSRP though.

    I never felt the need to own a car as much as I feel like I need a C8. If everything stays on its current trajectory, I should be able to swing a 3LT for MY2022. The Versa and weekend Maggie are going to have to hold on just a little longer.

    If you compare C7 automatic prices vs C8 prices, they only went up $1-3.8k at most. Z51 stayed constant.

    That's crazy. This thing is going to fly off dealer lots.

    Ha! Yes, the concept of what a base vehicle is has changed drastically over the years. Crank windows, no radio, no side view mirrors, no AC etc - that was a base model back in the day! Base was an engine, wheels and a roof!

    Re: 2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Starts at $59,995

    Leading up to the C8 introduction I had misgivings about the change from front engine to mid engine. Now that I've seen it I'm fully on board and glad they made the change. After seeing the awesome capabilities, the unbelievable pricing the "still looks like a Vette" design and beautiful interior, is there anyone out there that isn't happy?

    Though I'll probably kick myself for asking

    Absolutely amazing what the Corvette team is putting out with this C8. I just hope that GM can deliver on what they're promising. If so, it should be a massive hit. I just hope that GM can produce enough units to satisfy the demand.
