The 2023 Corvette introduces the fourth model year for the latest mid-engine Chevy Corvette C8, introducing the all-new 2023 Corvette Z06, as well as a few minor changes for the 2023 Corvette C8 Stingray. Now, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with the matter that the 2023 Corvette order guide will go live on March 21st, with 2023 Corvette order banks opening March 24th.
In addition to opening 2023 Corvette order banks on March 24th, General Motors will also launch the 2023 Corvette online configurator the same day. The first order cycle (Dealer Order Submission Process, or DOSP) will take place on March 31st.
Note that all of these dates apply to both the 2023 Corvette Stingray and the 2023 Corvette Z06. What’s more, these dates line up with the March reveal date for the 2023 Corvette Z06 pricing, as reported by GM Authority previously.
That said, all of these dates are subject to change with consideration to the current highly volatile operating environment, as demonstrated with the refreshed 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500.
GM Authority has also exclusively reported that General Motors is now launching a new Corvette order tracking program that will allow customers to keep tabs on where their vehicle is in terms of the order, production, and delivery process, thus providing additional clarity and transparency.
Per additional exclusive GM Authority coverage, the 2023 Corvette Z06 will launch using the Average Day Supply (ADS) allocation model, with no separate allocation group from the C8 Stingray. For those readers who may not know, the ADS model determines a dealer’s vehicle allocation based on the number of days it takes the dealer to sell the vehicle in question, rather than historic sales volume.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette C8 Stingray is powered by the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, while the 2023 Corvette C8 Z06 is powered by the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine. Both vehicles are based on the GM Y2 platform, with production taking place at the GM Bowling Green facility in Kentucky.
