The Stingray 2LT is the sweet spot, adding desirable luxuries such as power side bolsters without inflating the price to 3LT levels. As for the Z51, it's up to you, but we'd have a hard time saying no to all that extra performance for $5,000, or even the Grand Sport for an extra $10,000. As for the Z06 and ZR1, they are primarily meant for high-performance driving and track use, and that means it'll be hard to pilot every single day. Find a Chevrolet Corvette for sale
How Much Does a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Cost?
The Corvette is a 2-seat sports car offered in coupe (with a removable carbon-fiber roof panel) and soft-top convertible body styles. Chevrolet offers the Stingray and Grand Sport models in three trim levels, the 1LT, 2LT and 3LT, the Z06 is offered as the 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ, while the ZR1 is offered in 1ZR and 3ZR.
The 1LT coupe ($56,590) and 1LT convertible ($65,045) come standard with staggered-size alloy wheels (19-in front, 20-in rear), a carbon-fiber hood, keyless entry with push-button start, leather upholstery, power seats, two 8-in color displays (one in the gauge cluster and one on the dashboard), a rearview camera and a 9-speaker Bose audio system with iPod/Bluetooth integration and satellite radio.
The 2LT coupe ($61,045) and 2LT convertible ($65,045) add color-matched console and door panels, heated and ventilated seats with memory settings and additional power adjustments (lumbar and side bolsters), Corvette seat emblems, a universal garage-door opener, auto-dimming mirrors, a color head-up display, a 10-speaker Bose audio system with dual subwoofers, a cargo net and a luggage shade (coupe only).
The 3LT coupe ($66,335) and 3LT convertible ($70,335) tack on a full-leather interior with Nappa leather seating surfaces, a navigation system (optional on lower trims) and a color-matched instrument panel.
The Grand Sport ($71,045) and Grand Sport Convertible ($70,590) follow the same 1LT, 2LT and 3LT packaging as the Stingray, and add unique front and rear fenders that cover a wider track, a Z06 grille, a unique Grand Sport cup wheel design, a Brembo brake system, magnetic ride control, an electronic limited-slip differential, a dry-sump oil system, 5-position Drive Mode Select and MyLink infotainment with an 8-in touchscreen and a Performance Data Recorder (PDR).
The impressive Z06 ($81,890 for the coupe; $89,455 for the convertible), which adds an impressive array of sporty equipment. There's the bigger 650-hp engine, as well as improved suspension, upgraded tires, a carbon-fiber roof panel and improved cooling measures for enhanced track capabilities. The 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ trims follow the same basic upgrades as LT models.
Finally, the ZR1($119,995 coupe; $123,995 convertible) add a 755 hp engine, unique styling with a carbon fiber halo hood and an aero package with rear wings.
The popular Z51 package ($5,000 extra) adds bigger wheels (19-in front, 20-in rear) with Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP summer tires, a dry-sump oil system, an electronic limited-slip differential, more aggressive gearing, bigger front brakes (13.6-in discs versus 12.6-in discs), sport-tuned suspension components and lift-reducing aerodynamic tweaks. The ZR1 ZTK Track Package adds an adjustable high rear wing, front splitter with carbon fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and special magnetic ride control tuning.
Other notable options include adaptive magnetic ride dampers with a track-oriented stability control system, sport seats, carbon-fiber interior trim, a suede steering wheel and a transparent roof panel (coupe only). Also optional is a front parking camera, which is helpful given the Corvette's long nose and low ground clearance.
The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, a backup camera, General Motors' OnStar system and four airbags (front and side). Due to its low production volume, the Corvette has not yet been crash-tested by the federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
2019 Chevrolet Corvette vs the competition
2019 Ford GT -- This 600-plus-hp super coupe looks a bit more European than the Corvette, and while its performance is up to Corvette standards, its $400,000 price tag could buy you four loaded Z06s. Did we mention only a few lucky souls can buy one?
2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350-- The 526-hp Shelby GT350 looks to give the Corvette a major run for its money. Although we haven't driven it, we love the regular Mustang GT, so we have high hopes for the Shelby version.
2019 Porsche 718 Cayman -- Considerably smaller than the Corvette, the Cayman boasts ultraprecise handling and exceptional engine refinement. It's not nearly as fast, however, even in its S trim.
Used Porsche 911 -- If you like the Corvette but want a little more refinement, consider a 911. Pricing is high, so you may want to look at a used model, and while the 911 won't be as fast as the 'Vette, it offers a smoother, slicker package.
