When the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette debuted in Orange County, California, GM President, Mark Reuss, announced the pricing would start "under $60,000". This morning we learned that it really does start below $60,000 with a base price of $59,995.
Chevy released a full pricing guide Thursday morning, and here's what we've learned.
With the 1LT model starting at $59,995, the mid-engine sports car comes in just $3,000 above its front-engine predecessor.
The 2020 Corvette has three trim packages with increasing levels of equipment. Chevy states, "1LT is the car for driving purists who want the lightest Stingray possible, but one that's still very well equipped." It comes with a Bose premium 10-speaker system, standard 8-way power GT1 seats, driver mode selector, and all-season performance tires. It also comes in 8 standard exterior colors, with the option to upgrade to 4 additional colors.

Next up, the 2LT, starting at $67,295. Chevy states, "2LT adds a number of comfort and convenience features in addition to color-matched interior options." The 2LT comes with everything the 1LT does, plus additional interior options, Bose Performance Series 14-speaker audio system, heated/vented seats and a heated steering wheel, the option for GT2 seats in Napa leather, as well as head-up display and PDR.
Finally, the 3LT model "is the utmost in luxury performance, with a leather-wrapped interior," according to Chevy. It comes with everything the 2LT comes with, plus 13 interior color options, a custom leather-wrapped instrument panel and door, suede microfiber upper interior trim, and standard GT2 seats in Napa leather. The 3LT starts at $71,945.
