The 2023 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray arrives as the fourth model year for the latest eighth-generation sports car, introducing only a few small changes and updates as compared to the preceding 2022 model year. Now, the 2023 Corvette includes a small price increase as well.
Although the MSRP for the 2023 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray is unchanged, the mid-engine sports car now includes a slightly more-expensive destination freight charge (DFC), which is up $100 from $1,295 to $1,395.
As such, the least-expensive 2023 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray trim on offer is the 1LT Coupe, now priced at $63,295 with DFC, while the most-expensive trim is the 3LT Convertible, priced at $82,245 with DFC.
As it just so happens, this new DFC increase also applies to 2022 model-year vehicles, with all unsold 2022 Corvette models now reflecting the $100 DFC increase.
Check out the table below for a more complete breakdown of the updated Corvette C8 pricing, including the new DFC:
|Trim Level||Configuration||2022 MSRP + DFC||2023 MSRP + DFC|
Notably, the Corvette C8 Stingray isn’t the only GM model to receive a price hike as of late. As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Chevy Silverado HD has also received a price increase, the fourth such increase since the heavy-duty pickup first went on sale last year. The latest price increase for the Silverado HD includes an extra $100 added to the DFC, rising from $1,695 to $1,795, as well as a flat $1,000 for all trim levels and configurations.
With regard to the 2023 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray, motivation is sourced from the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, which is rated at 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Under the skin is the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.
