The 2022 Corvette is headed to Australia and New Zealand, and now, pricing information for the two Oceania markets has been revealed.
Customers in Australia and New Zealand will have several trims to choose from, starting with the 2LT, the mid-ranger in the U.S. market, priced at AU$144,990 (before on-road costs) in Australia, or $110,305 at current exchange rates. The 2LT will start at NZ$154,990 in New Zealand, or $108,323 at current exchange rates.
The 2022 Corvette will also be offered in the top 3LT trim level, priced at AU$160,500 in Australia ($122,104 at current exchange rates) and NZ$169,990 in New Zealand ($118,806 at current exchange rates).
In addition to the 2022 Corvette 2LT and 3LT Coupe, both markets will also get the drop-top convertible body style in both trim levels, with convertibles adding a $15,000 premium across the board compared to the fixed-top model.
Finally, both markets will get the 2022 Corvette Carbon Edition as well, although pricing information for the Carbon Edition has yet to be revealed. More info will be available in the second quarter of the year.
As for the greasy bits, the 2022 Corvette set to arrive in Australia and New Zealand will match the U.S.-spec models, with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine mounted just behind the cabin, sending 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels by way of an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Z51 Performance Package will be equipped as standard across the line, as will the Front Lift feature.
Critically, the 2022 Corvette will be delivered from the factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky in a right-hand-drive configuration, as opposed to undergoing a conversion from left-hand drive post production. The vehicle will be launched by General Motors Special Vehicles (GMSV), the new sub-brand taking up the mantle following the departure of Holden.
