The 2024 Corvette ushers in the fifth model year for the latest eighth-generation Chevy Corvette C8, bringing with it the new 2024 Corvette E-Ray, the first-ever hybrid-powered all-wheel drive production vehicle to wear the storied Corvette nameplate. Production of the 2024 Corvette is set to begin this fall, as GM Authority covered previously. Now, GM Authority has learned when the 2024 Corvette online configurator will go live.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2024 Corvette will go live at Chevy’s website on July 18th, 2023. That includes the configurator for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray, 2024 Corvette Z06, and 2024 Corvette Stingray, as well as the visualizer tool for the 2024 Corvette Z06 and 2024 Corvette Stingray. The visualizer for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray is already available.
The biggest update for the 2024 Corvette is the introduction of the new 2024 Corvette E-Ray, which combines the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine cradled by the C8 Corvette Stingray with a single electric motor and 1.9 kWh battery system to produce a combined 655 horsepower.
Meanwhile, the 2024 Corvette lineup will once again offer the C8 Corvette Z06, which was introduced for the 2023 model year. The Corvette Z06 features the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which produces a maximum of 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and revs up to an 8,600-rpm redline.
Finally, the C8 Corvette Stingray will slot in as the “entry-level” variant of the 2024 Corvette pyramid, cradling the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, good for 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque.
All three 2024 Corvette variants ride on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky, the exclusive producer of the Corvette since 1981. As GM Authority covered previously, production of the 2024 Corvette will begin September 5th, 2023, while production of the 2023 Corvette will end September 1st, 2023.
