The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette

November 10, 2017

The highly-anticipated 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and 2019 C8 mid-engine Corvette are generating plenty of buzz. Speculation and sightings of the new ZR1 have it powered by a 6.2-L, 750-hp engine connected to a seven-speed Tremec manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic. Yes, that’s 7-5-0 horsepower. However, that’s just speculation. We don’t have anything official as of yet. What we do have is all the important information about the 2018 Corvette that is currently available. Or rather Corvettes, plural. There is more than one of them.


How many trim levels are available for the 2018 Corvette?


There are actually three different Corvettes available for 2018. Each of them come in three different trim levels and either a coupe design with a removable top or a convertible. They are the Corvette Stingray, the Corvette Grand Sport, and the Corvette Z06.

The Corvette Stingray and Grand Sport are available in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trims. The Z06 comes in a 1LZ, 2LZ or 3LZ trim.

There is also a Z51 Performance Package available for the Corvette Stingray. The Z07 Performance package is available for the Corvette Z06 and Grand Sport. It includes a fine-tuned suspension, Brembo 15.5″/15.3″ carbon ceramic brake rotors and special Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ZP tires for better traction.


What are the engine options in the new Corvette?


The 2018 Corvette Z06 comes with a 6.2-L Supercharged V8 DI motor and a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching. This engine produces 650 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. An eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission is available for all three trim levels.

Stingray and Grand Sport Corvettes come with a 6.2-L V8 DI engine that produces 460 hp and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. It also comes with a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching, but you can get the eight-speed paddle shift automatic instead.


How much does the 2018 Corvette cost?


MSRP for the base Z06 Corvette 1LZ coupe model is $79,495. The Z06 3LZ convertible starts at $93,535. Base MSRP for the Grand Sport 1LT coupe is $66,590. If you get the convertible Grand Sport 3LT, you’ll pay at least $76,335. The Stingray 1LT coupe starts out at $55,495. If you buy the Stingray 3LT convertible with the Z51 Performance Package, it will cost at least $75,335.


Does the 2018 Corvette get good gas mileage?


The Corvette doesn’t get great mileage, but it is about what you would expect from a high-performance sports car. The Z06 gets the worst mileage of the trio with 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. The Stingray and the Grand Sport are a little more fuel efficient with 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.


Does the new Corvette come with a good infotainment system?


All trim levels of the Z06, Grand Sport, and Stingray come standard with an OnStar 4G LTE built-in WiFi hotspot, a trial subscription for the OnStar Guidance Plan service, an Instrumentation and Driver Information Center, an audio input jack, Bluetooth 3.0 wireless connectivity and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

The 1LT and 2LT trim levels come with Chevrolet MyLink with an 8″ Color TouchScreen. The 3LT trim level comes with the Chevrolet MyLink with the 8″ Color TouchScreen and Navigation.

The 2LT and 3LT trims come with a Bose advanced ten-speaker audio system. The 1LT trim comes with a Bose Premium nine-speaker audio system.

Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto connectivity are also available.


What sort of safety features come standard on the 2018 Corvette?


The 2018 Corvettes come with Active Handling Stability Control, Electronic Traction Control, Performance Traction Management, and a Rear Vision Camera. They also come with a 5-year subscription for an OnStar Basic Plan.


Does the Corvette come with a good warranty or service plan?

Chevrolet also provides a limited powertrain and drivetrain warranty for five years or 60,000 miles and a bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that lasts three years or 36,000 miles.
