In case you missed it, General Motors recently unveiled the new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06, a mid-engine performance machine sporting a long list of go-faster equipment and track-ready features. Although the recent reveal gave us plenty of specs and info to chew on, one very important tidbit is still unknown, namely the 2023 Corvette Z06 price.
Indeed, if Corvette Z06 models of the past are any indication, the new 2023 Corvette Z06 price will undoubtedly be a bargain for the performance on offer. For reference, the 2019 Corvette Z06 retailed from $80,900, giving us something of a baseline from which to build our expectations.
Of course, it should be said that the new Z06 is quite the departure from the preceding seventh generation, and that will no doubt be reflected in the 2023 Corvette Z06 price. It all starts with the mid-mounted, naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, offered as the highest-horsepower, all-atmosphere V8 engine ever offered in a production vehicle, rated at 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Sixty mph arrives in a mere 2.6 seconds.
All that muscle is the product of several impressive features, such as a lightweight rotating assembly with a flat-plane crank. Put your foot down, and the LT6 will spin up to 8,600 rpm, creating an exotic howl that may or may not be out of step with the 2023 Corvette Z06 price.
A dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission is onboard to send the go to the rear axle, with a shortened 5.56 final drive ratio giving the 2023 Corvette Z06 even crisper acceleration. The new Z06 also has a wider stance, riding on 275/30ZR20 tires in front, and 345/25ZR21 tires in back. Magnetic Ride Control suspension is standard, as are 14.6-inch-diameter front and 15-inch-diameter rear Brembo brake rotors, squeezed by six-piston and rear four-piston Brembo calipers, respectively.
Inside the cabin, a head-up display is standard. Three trim levels will be offered, including 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ.
