Most assumed the Chevrolet Corvette would lose some of its attainability with its move to a mid-engine layout. Well, this morning Chevrolet has confirmed the 2020 Corvette is losing nothing when it comes to attainability, because it starts at $59,995.
The sub-$60,000 price figure includes destination charges, meaning there will be 2020 Corvette Stingray models with sticker prices under $60,000. This isn’t a huge surprise given Chevy executives promised the car would “start under $60,000” when it was revealed a month ago. It’s price point makes it among the cheapest mid-engine cars on the market.
While the $59,995 price yields the Corvette 1LT model, buyers can upgrade to the 2LT trim level for $67,295, while the top-tier 3LT comes in at $71,945. Variances between the three trim levels can be found in this chart.
“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.
In order to assist buyers with acquiring the new Corvette, Chevrolet does have a Corvette Concierge team working out of General Motors HQ in Detroit. These folks will be available from 9AM to 9PM Monday through Friday to answer questions regarding the buying process. The team can be reached by phone or email.
Production of the 2020 Corvette will commence later this year in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
