The Chevrolet Corvette is the quintessential American sports car. Though it was first released 65 years ago, drivers still love these cars. These are high-powered vehicles, with a carefully crafted, aesthetically pleasing exterior featuring integrated aerodynamics and cooling components, adding to the car’s incredible performance on the road. Each one of the Corvette packages also features fantastic fuel economy for a vehicle in its class, with a combined city-highway MPG of 18.

2018 Corvette Options

Check out the four available Corvette trim levels to find the perfect one for your needs. There are also eight configurations available, so you are sure to find the features you want.

Chevrolet Stingray

All Stingrays come equipped with rear-wheel drive, direct-injection V8 engine, and a seven-speed manual transmission. If stick shift isn’t your thing, an eight-speed paddle automatic transmission is also available. A nine-speaker Bose audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard with each one.

Chevrolet Stingray Z51

This is the perfect performance package for drivers who love speed. It comes with everything you love about the Stingray, and then adds an electronic limited-slip differential, dry sump oil system, and improved brakes, shocks, and springs. This powerful ride can go from zero to 60 in just over 3.5 seconds.

Chevrolet Grand Sport

The Grand Sport was designed for Corvette enthusiasts, combining the simplicity of the Stingray with the performance of the Z06. It has a suspension that is tuned for the track and magnetic ride control. Wider rear fenders and a unique front splitter make the Grand Sport look every bit as powerful as it is.

Chevrolet Z06

While the Z06 does look quite different from the Stingray, the main thing separating the two is the Z06’s powerful engine. It is a supercharged aluminum V8, capable of accelerating from zero to 60 in just three seconds.

Interior Trim

In addition to the Corvette model differences, there are also a few Corvette package differences drivers should be aware of. Interior trim levels are also options you can choose from, with the 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT levels being available for each exterior trim. Each interior level builds off the prior one, with 3LT versions having more comfort and technological features than the 1LT.

Car Buying Tips

Before you rush out and buy your dream car, please take a moment to read over our tips for car buyers:

    1. Decide upon whether you want to buy new or used; then do your research on the model you want.
    2. Determine your budget and stick to it.
    3. Figure out how much it will cost to own your new vehicle – fuel costs, maintenance expenses, and even how much new tires are.
    4. If you intend on financing your purchase, get approved before heading to the dealership.
    5. Assume that getting financed via the dealership will not be the best deal (or, at least, there’s a very good chance it’s not the most favorable loan rate).
    6. Look online and in newspapers for the best deal on the vehicle you want. More often than not, dealerships will price match on new cars.
