ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport carries on the legendary nameplate that was created way back in the early 1960s. This current version follows in the footsteps of the first Grand Sport that made its debut in 1963, and again in 1996 and 2010. We spent a weekend with the current Grand Sport to see if it lives up to the reputation its predecessors set forth almost 56 years ago. See the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette models for sale near you

What Is It?

The Grand Sport falls in between the base Stingray and the track-inspired Z06. The Grand Sport gives you the best of both worlds with the base model's practicality and the Z06's aggressive styling. It gets hand-me-downs from the Z06 including a Z06 like grille, front fender vents and rear spoiler. Its fenders are also wider to shoehorn in those ultra-wide 19- and 20-in wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The Grand Sport comes standard with a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 with 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. A 7-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match is standard and an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters is optional. The Grand Sport gets plenty of performance goodies such as magnetic ride control, slotted brake rotors and multi-mode performance exhaust. An electronic limited slip differential, a dry sump oil system and speed-sensitive, variable ratio power steering is also standard.

Our Grand Sport was equipped with the optional 3LT package, which includes power bolster and power lumbar seats, a head-up display and front curb view monitors. This package truly gives the interior a premium feel with lots of soft touch leather on the instrument panel, console, and doors. The package also features Bose audio, an 8-in color navigation touchscreen, and a curb view camera.

How Does It Perform?

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport can sprint from 0-to-60 mph time in 3.6 seconds and run the quarter mile in 11.8 seconds. Drivers can tailor the ride to their liking with Driver Mode Select, which includes driving modes such as Weather, Eco, Tour, Sport and Track. We spent a 50/50 mixture of time in Tour and Sport modes. Tour mode is a great combination of smooth ride and brisk performance. Switching over to Sport mode considerably firms up the ride and adds a dose of adrenaline to the driving experience. A brief fling with Track mode turns the excitement up a notch with a significantly deeper exhaust tone.

How Much Does It Cost?

The base price of our Grand Sport is $65,900. The 3LT package adds $9,745 to the mix and the 8-speed automatic transmission tacks on another $1,995. The Grand Sport Heritage Package, which includes fender hash marks, interior aluminum hash marks and Grand Sport logo floor mats, adds another $795. Destination charge is $1,095. Add it all up and the grand total of our Grand Sport comes out to $79,530.

Wrapup

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is a fitting end to the seventh generation Corvette. It's one of the best Corvettes we've driven in terms of handling, road manners and performance. And with the next generation coming later this year, you may be able to get a bargain on these before they're gone. Find a Chevrolet Corvette for sale
