    Possible Color Options for 2022 C8 Corvette

    Possible Color Options for 2022 C8 Corvette

    The possible color options for the 2022 C8 Corvette have been revealed through a report obtained by CorvetteBlogger. Three of the existing color options are likely to be dropped for the 2022 model according to Chevrolet. The retired color options include Sebring Orange, Shadow Gray, and Zeus Bronze. Motor1.com reached out to confirm this information with Chevrolet and received the following response:

    We notified Chevy dealers that we intend to discontinue a few exterior paint colors on Corvette at the end of 2021 model year. This was done so they could provide accurate information to customers who are interested in ordering a 2021 Corvette so customers can get the color they want while still available. At this time, we are not providing specific details on color options for model year 2022. Those options will be communicated to dealers closer to the time of 2022 model year ordering.

    Sebring Orange and Zeus Bronze will be able to be requested through April 29th, 2021, while Shadow Gray will be available to order through May 27th, 2021.

    While solid details about the 2022 color options likely won't be confirmed until July, when Chevy plans to release the first official details on the Corvette C8 Z06, the CorvetteBlogger source did share what we can anticipate. There is a strong likelihood that we will see one brand new color, as well as replacements for Sebring Orange and Shadow gray.

    The information was obtained from the European Corvette Dealer's website where they shared some of the color options that will be offered. The paint choices are listed out as: Amplify Orange Tintcoat, Hypersonic Gray Metallic, and Caffeine Brown Metallic. These are the internal names used by General Motors and we can expect these colors to debut with names different than those listed above.

    The First 2020 Mid-Engine Corvettes Are Here

    The First 2020 Mid-Engine Corvettes Are Here

    The first 2020 Corvette C8 cars are now heading to Chevy showrooms across the country. With production kicking off on February 3rd, we've been anxiously awaiting the first arrivals of the mid-engine sports car. A blurry video clip shows 4 transporters carrying 2020 Corvettes on March 4th from the Bowling Green, KY plant. 

    Back in January, the VIN 001 sold for $3 million at the Barrett-Jackson auction. The winner of the first mid-engine Corvette, Rick Hendrick (owner of Hendrick Motorsports and founder of Hendrick Automotive Group), recently took delivery of the car at his dealership in Charlotte, North Carolina. 
    Although the vehicle at the Barrett-Jackson auction was a red prototype, the actual VIN 001 is a black-on-black 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe. It comes loaded with the Z51 performance pack, which includes a 6.2 liter V08 rated at 495 horsepower, with the ability to reach 60 mph in under 3 seconds. 
    Proceeds from the $3 million sale benefited the Detroit Children's Fund, helping with educational resources across Detroit. 
    Production was initially expected to begin towards the end of 2019 but was pushed back due to the strike last fall at the Bowling Green plant. Now that production has begun, you have your chance to own the new mid-engine sports car for just $59,995. Production on the convertible option is expected to begin soon. 
    Now that the 2020 Corvette C8 is headed to showrooms, it's time to start stocking up on your C8 gear, especially if your Corvette is one of those being delivered soon. We are excited to now offer C8 Covercraft car covers, a great way to protect your investment both indoors and outdoors. We also have a full line of C8 gear, including apparel, glassware, art, bags, and more. This is a great way to show your loyalty to America's favorite sports car.

    GM To Debut The 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette Convertible in October

    GM To Debut The 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette Convertible in October

    Just when the dust has settled from the unveiling of the 2020 mid-engine Corvette, GM has us back on the edges of our seats. On October 2nd Chevrolet will debut the first ever mid-engine Corvette Convertible. Although we’ve already been teased with images of the convertible back in July, we’ve never received a full introduction to the new super-car. The reveal will take place at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Merritt Island, Florida.

     

     

    Chevy made their official announcement via Twitter on Tuesday morning, showing an illustration of a coupe that turns into a convertible. If you look close enough, you’ll notice the transition from coupe to convertible makes the body slightly longer, while changing out the sloped rear window for rear-mounted ribs. The convertible also appears to have a sleek flying-buttress design behind the roll over structure and on the lid that covers the top stowage area. Rumor has it, there will be a power-retractable hard-top which would be a first for Corvette.

    We estimate that the convertible will add on an extra $5,000. Stay tuned for the latest Corvette debut on October 2nd. Be sure to check out our growing selection of Next Generation Corvette Gear!

    Just Announced: The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Pricing Guide Revealed

    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.

    You can now pre-order your 2020 Corvette and the options seem nearly endless. Assembly kicks off later this year in Bowling Green, Kentucky. To shop 2020 gear, visit https://www.corvettestoreonline.com/collections/next-generation.
