Chevrolet Raising Price on 2014 Corvette Stingray

The 2014 Corvette Stingray is a huge success according to Chevrolet, with demand having exceeded the company’s initial expectations. And to help meet current demand, Chevy has decided to raise prices on the base version of the Vette, as well as the ones fitted with the Z51 Performance Package.

From now on, the 2014 Corvette, be it either a coupe or a convertible, will be $2,000 more expensive. This means the Stingray will have a starting price of $53,995, while the drop top will fetch at least $58,995. Both stickers include handling and destination.

As for the Z51 Performance package, it will now cost $4,000, meaning a $1,200 hike. With the new adjustment, a Z51 Stingray will begin at $57,995, while a Z51 Convertible will “relieve” customers of at least $62,995.

It’s important to note that customers who already have an order in the system are not subject to the price increase, while some dealers won’t charge more for cars that have arrived on their lots before March 2014.

“The reason for the increase is simply that customer demand for the Stingray, and especially the Z51 package, have exceeded our initial expectations. As such we wanted to adjust pricing in line with demand,” said Monte Doran, Chevrolet PR specialist for the Corvette and Camaro.

While we don’t support Chevy’s decision to raise pricing on the 2014 Corvette, we just have to say that the V8-powered sportscar is still cheaper when compared to its rival. Want to find out more about the C7 Corvette? Then make sure you read our recent test drive.
