The 2023 Corvette lineup will do away with the Morello Red Dipped interior color option, GM Authority can confirm.
The Morello Red Dipped interior color option for the C8 Corvette Stingray was available as a no-cost option on the 3LT trim level only and could be paired with either the GT2 or Competition bucket seats. It could be ordered with the following exterior colors (relevant paint code listed in parentheses):
- Arctic White (G8G)
- Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic (G9F)
- Hypersonic Gray Metallic (GA7)
- Black (GBA)
- Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat (GPH)
- Silver Flare Metallic (GSJ)
While this interior color was a no-cost option with the above-listed exterior colors, it could also be matched to the rest of the C8 Corvette color palette by paying a $590 Color Combination Override charge (RPO code D30). These include the following exterior colors:
- Caffeine Metallic (G48)
- Amplify Orange Tintcoat (GC5)
- Accelerate Yellow Metallic (GD0)
- Torch Red (GKZ)
- Rapid Blue (GMO)
- Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic (GS7)
This interior color option will be indirectly replaced by the Adrenaline Red Dipped interior color. This is a similar interior upholstery option in that it also applies red leather upholstery and carpeting to virtually every interior surface in the vehicle, however Adrenaline Red is a lighter hue than Morello Red.
The 2023 Corvette will also drop the Sky Cool Gray/Strike Yellow interior color combination from its order books, as GM Authority reported previously.
Production of the 2023 Corvette, including the standard Stingray and the high-performance Z06, is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 9th, 2022. Production will once again take place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It’s currently unclear if this May 9th production start date will include the 2023 Corvette Z06, or if General Motors will begin with production of the 2023 Corvette Stingray instead. Prices start at $63,195 including a $1,295 destination/freight charge for the base 1LT trim level.
