2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray priced at $51,995 in the United States

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 27, 2013

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe has a base price of $51,995 (inclusive of destination costs), making it $1,400 more expensive than the outgoing model, according to General Motors. The base convertible has a price tag of $56,995 (inclusive of destination costs), which is $1,240 higher than its predecessor model.

These prices demonstrate how GM has fulfilled its pledge to make the base price of the sports car attainable even with the numerous improvements in the redesigned seventh-generation Corvette, which is set to start selling this September.

The standard equipment includes a seven-speed manual transmission; Bose nine-speaker sound system with Bluetooth connection; dual, 8-inch infotainment screens with Chevy MyLink infotainment system and rearview camera; and a carbon fiber hood and removable roof panel.

All of the models will be available with the new 6.2-liter V-8 engine from GM that features cylinder deactivation. To reduce fuel consumption, four of the eight cylinders are shut off at cruising speeds. GM claims that the new Stingray will be able to return 30 mpg on the highway compared to 26 mpg for the present Corvette.

GM executives hope to appeal to younger customers and to raise Corvette sales. In a statement, Chris Perry, vice president of Chevy marketing, said that it aims to attract buyers with its enhanced interior and sleeker design as well as its styling features that are unconventional like the trapezoidal taillights.

GM revealed in a statement that the automaker was able to establish the price with the aim of offering its customers with something unexpected. Perry said that the Corvette Stingray offers a mix of performance, design and technology that can only be matched by very few automakers. But none of the comparable cars cost anywhere near $52,000.

The 2LT – the mid-trim level – has a sticker price of $56,205. The 3LT – the top trim level – costs $60,000. For this price, the vehicle is equipped with a color head-up display, navigation, heated and ventilated seats, premium leather seats and a leather-wrapped dash and instrument panel. GM offers the following as major options for this model: competition sports seats ($2,495); exposed carbon fiber ($1,995); magnetic-based damping system ($1,795) and a dual-mode exhaust system ($1,195).
